CSM Theatre's Butterfly Project

Thank you to all who contributed to the Butterfly Project (contributors listed below if butterflies arrived with a completed form).  By the end of the run of I Never Saw Another Butterfly, we had collected approximately 10,000 hand-crafted butterflies!  These butterflies are being sent to the Houston Holocaust Museum  where they have been collecting handmade butterflies from all over the world.  They have reached their goal of 1,500,000 butterflies to represent the 1,500,000 innocent children who died in the Holocaust, but will continue to accept submissions through June 2013.  The museum is planning an exhibition of all the collected butterflies and that should include the ones we contribute.  Thank you for caring!

Each day more butterflies arrived and the students and
Assistant Technical Director taped them to the walls.

Despite the seriousness of the topic, there were moments of joy surrounding the placement of the butterflies.
