I Never Saw Another Butterfly
The play follows the story of Jewish children coping with the trauma of the Holocaust through the arts, thanks to a wonderful teacher. It’s based on a true story- the children’s artwork and poems of the ghetto of Terezin were preserved and are referenced in the show. Our mission is to tell their story because they wanted the world to remember them and, though the topic is serious, the message of hope and the resiliency of the human spirit is an important one to share.
The butterflies on the poster represent the children in our cast. They were drawn by the kids, referencing butterflies native to Czechoslovakia. The scraps of paper signify their use of any material available on which they made their art or wrote their poems. Collage was a method used by the children there, as well. The poster is our homage to the work created by the children of Terezin.
Only 4 performances open to the public. March 23 at 7pm, March 24 at 8pm, March 25 at 8pm and March 26 at 2pm. Tickets will only be available at the door, no presale. General Seating. All seats are $10.
Schools wishing to reserve space for the special school day performances on March 22 & 23 at 2pm should call the theatre at 716-743-1614.

We are haunted!
The Ghostlight was built in 1889, and over the years, we've learned there are a few cast, crew, and audience members of the spectral variety.
