Originally performed in a concentration camp during World War II, The Fireflies tells a charming story of hope. The play recounts the misadventures of Broucek, a firefly boy, as he comes of age. The Fireflies has lively folk songs and dances, gentle humor and historical import. CMU’s production, informed by Holocaust survivors who witnessed or participated in the play, will feature Czech survivor and educator Michaela Vidláková in the role of the narrator.
Written by Lauren McConnell - based on the children’s book by Jan Karafiat; Musical Adaptation by Jose-Luis Maurtua - Directed by Nancy Eddy
