Here is a Park Forest event worth getting out of the house for on Aug. 9.
“THE ELUSIVE BUTTERFLY”: FieldCrest School of Performing Arts summer campers will perform this musical at 5 p.m. at the downtown Park Forest Village Green, Cunningham Drive and Main Street.
The show was written by ages 5 to 14 during a seven-week camp. Their creativity, collaborative writing, acting lessons and dance instruction will come to life on stage.
Jasmine, the new girl, and her classmates take a trip to Nigeria. The classmates are mean to Jasmine and judge her based on her appearance and high intellect.
During the trip, the students learn about the unseen Elusive Butterfly. The children are placed into teams by their teacher to find this butterfly.
During the adventure, Jasmine falls into a well. The children work together to save her and learn a good lesson not to judge other people.
Established in 1977, FieldCrest is a cultural enrichment and performing arts school.
The show is free to all ages. Information: (708) 679-7960, fieldcrestperarts.com.
