Goodrich High School Theatre presenting Spring One-Act Plays and Student Designer Showcase

This spring, the well known Goodrich High School Theatre will be presenting two well known one-act plays, I Never Saw Another Butterfly and The Actor's Nightmare. Both productions not only continue the tradition of excellent high school theatre production value, but feature the work of student leaders as stage directors, scenery, lighting, costume, and sound designers on multiple levels. This marks a shift from design leadership at Goodrich High School where typically these elements are directed and produced by Goodrich High School Theatre Director, Steve Mitchell.

I Never Saw Another Butterfly by Celeste Raspanti

Describing and comprehending the horrors of the Holocaust, while already an inconceivable task, takes a whole new level when considering it through the eyes of those children that lived it.


I Never Saw Another Butterfly is a story based on truth and told by and of Raja Englanderova, a child of the Holocaust. Images and poetry used in the production are the actual works of the real children that lived in the Terezin ghetto, preserved through the unstoppable efforts of those whose lives were touched by them.


The production is a chilling, yet ultimately empowering story of the youngest victims of the greatest crime against humanity, in their very own words.

The Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang

Having accidentally walked on stage, George finds himself thrown into a play as the lead, which is a role he isn’t prepared for in the least!


George is put on the spot and acts in Noel Coward’s Private Lives and Shakespeare’s Hamlet and to the frustration and anger of an entire theatre company, doesn’t know a single one of his lines! We encourage you laugh at George’s expense as he tries and fails to perform on stage!
