As Butterflies, a new musical
by Austin Jewish Repertory Theatre

May. 07 - May. 22, 2016
Thursdays, Saturdays-Sundays

TILT Performance Group joins the Austin Jewish Repertory Theater and Ground Floor Theatre to bring Austin audiences the heartfelt, beautifully poignant words of children interned in Holocaust camps by the Third Reich.

Hal Hudson and Jim Crew's new original musical AS BUTTERFLIES - based on the poems collected in the acclaimed book I Never Saw Another Butterfly - will be staged at Congregation Beth Israel. 

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy."   --Anne Frank

AS BUTTERFLIES is the story of children incarcerated in the Terezin concentration camp, and is based on the poetry these children wrote, which has been compiled in the book I NEVER SAW ANOTHER BUTTERFLY. This is a beautiful musical and features the acting and singing of children as well as actors from TILT Performance Group. Our production is directed by AJRT Artistic Director and TILT Co-Director Adam Roberts and will be performed at Congregation Beth Israel beginning two days after Yom HaShoah, the day of remembrance of the Holocaust. 
AS BUTTERFLIES has only been produced once before, in the early 1980s; our production will be attended by several of the original actors in that production as well as the sister of one of the show's creators.
