Theatre Kent has announced its first play of the 2023-2024 lineup.

The season begins with a musical production of “I Never Saw Another Butterfly,” the stirring story of an inspirational teacher and the children of a ghetto under Nazi rule during the Second World War.

The play’s theme dovetails with the Ministry of Education’s plan to introduce Holocaust studies for Grade 6 students across the province.

The topic is already part of the Grade 10 history curriculum.

Co-directors Elisabeth Enzlin and Tim Luimes have a vision to highlight the talents of youth and young adults, age 12 to 25 plus, both on stage and behind the scenes. They will be hosting auditions on June 16 and 17 at St. Andrew’s United Fellowship Hall in Chatham.

Those who are interested will read a provided monologue and sing a short song of your own choice, plus undergo vocal range testing.

A total of six performances of the play will be timed to coincide with Remembrance Day, including two school matinees. Evening performances will be held Nov. 9, 10 and 11, as well as an afternoon matinee on the final day.
