    This is a wild, free-flowing comedy that’s easy to stage. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie—and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes—the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!

    Directed by Sandra Assarian

    Performance Dates – March 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, & 24, 25, & 26 , 2017
    All performances are at 8 pm except Sundays, which begin at 3 pm.

    From 1942 to 1945, during WWII, over 15,000 Jewish children passed through Terezin, a former military garrison set up as a ghetto in Czechoslovakia. It soon became a station, a stopping-off place, for hundreds of thousands of Jews on their way to the gas chambers of Auschwitz. When Terezin was liberated in 1945, only about a hundred were still alive. The story of those years at Terezin remains in drawings and poems collected and published in the book, I Never Saw Another Butterfly .

    One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It is her play and it is theirs. This play is an imaginative creation of her story from documentary materials: poems, diaries, letters, journals, drawings and pictures.

    There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to tolerate and endure the hardships of their lives.
