Students to present play about Holocaust

Winters Mill High School drama students will present I Never Saw Another Butterfly at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the school auditorium, 560 Gorsuch Road, Westminster.

The story is based on people who endured the horrors of living in the Terezin ghetto in Czechoslovakia, which became known as a holding area for those who would be sent to Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Of the 15,000 children who lived in Terezin, 100 survived.

The children were given hope and strength by a teacher, Irena Synkova, who helped them express their feelings through art, song and poetry.

The play's story is told by a student, Raja Englandarova, who becomes the teacher when Synkova is taken to Auschwitz.

Students who attended a field trip to the National Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington will display their reactions to the experience in various formats in the lobby.

Tickets are $5 in advance (sold at lunch) and $6 at the door.

Information: 410-386-1500.

Arc to present Capitol Steps Nov. 12

The Arc of Carroll County will present the Capitol Steps in an evening of comedy and music at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at Winters Mill High School, 560 Gorsuch Road, Westminster.

The Capitol Steps is a group of congressional staffers turned comedians who travel the country satirizing the people and places they once worked for.

Most of them worked for Democrats and Republicans, so everybody is fair game for their humor. Founded in 1981, the group has recorded 18 albums and appeared on television and radio programs.

Tickets are $20 and are available at businesses and at the Carroll County Arts Council.

Proceeds benefit the Arc and its programs for the developmentally disabled.

Information: 410-848-4124.
