Theatre: Maria and the Butterflies
04/24/2022 - 2:30pm to 4:30pm
HELENA – Carroll College Theatre is producing Maria and the Butterflies by Katherine Gee Perrone with score by Dana Cardon which runs April 21 through May 1, 2022. This world-premiere musical was commissioned by Carroll College Theatre to tell the story of Maria Sibylla Merian, a painter and scientist from the 1600s who studied and illustrated the metamorphosis of bugs and butterflies in Germany, The Netherlands, and South America. This hour-long musical tells the story of her life from age 13 until late in her life, and features puppets of insects, caterpillars, butterflies, and more to portray the process of metamorphosis which Maria helped to illuminate in a world where many still believed Aristotle’s theory that maggots sprung spontaneously from meat. The show will be entertaining for all ages, and is recommended particularly for elementary-aged children.
Carroll Theatre will host audiences for school day matinees as well as weekend performances for the public. Associate Professor Kim Shire is directing, Anna Milburn is music directing, and Amber Barnes is Associate Director. Tickets available now at www.carroll.edu/theatre.

Night of the Talking Saints
05/01/2022 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
A showcase of performances from our very own Talking Saints Forensics team accompanied by cookies and lemonade in Avila Room. Featuring: Emma Peterson, Vicente Ortega, Anna Brown, Kohl Bonser, Katie Payne, Melissa Jagelski, Nicole Williams & Madi McDonald.
Mostly PG-13, with a few immodest, OhMyGosh words, scattered here and there. Topics include two 20-something women trying to navigate their quarter-life crisis, an indigenous man surviving a rough childhood and heading back home to help his community, a nun bringing her frisky pet to her quiet convent, a wrestler’s guilt over his unethical victory, a daughter watching her mom disappear into Alzheimer’s, poetry about overcoming grief and loss, and a women’s basketball player trying to keep her competitive drive in check.
In memory of Dorothy Harper, 1922-2021.
The Talking Saints are dedicating the afternoon performances to Dorothy Harper, who contributed so much to Carroll and to Helena. She was a two-time national speech champion, but her greatest achievements were named Rusty, Hal, Steve, Nancy, and Jannie. She also kept her husband Rev. George Harper, (mostly) in check.
Dorothy never missed our evening performances, and was always smiling and clapping, whether we forgot a line or not. May we all keep the indomitable joyful spirit of Dorothy alive, forever.
