The r25 Theater Group announces the first two shows of our 2024 season.

"Bakersfield Mist"

By Stephen Sachs
April 19 - May 19
Directed by Richard Winters

Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she's now convinced it's a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.

"I Never Saw Another Butterfly"

By Celeste Raspanti
October 11 - November 10
Directed by Michele Koehler
The play centers on Raja Englanderova, one of the children who survived Terezin, a World War II Nazi concentration camp. We meet Raja's family, friends, and classmates, as she shares her story of living in the camp, while retaining a world filled with butterflies and flowers. The text is based on a book of poetry and drawings made by the Jewish children at Terezin, and was adapted by Celeste Raspanti from her book of the same name.
