Twenty-seven students from the FieldCrest School of Performing Arts Summer Camp recently presented “The Elusive Butterfly” at the downtown Park Forest Village Green.

“The Elusive Butterfly” was written by the young performers during the seven-week summer camp.

The story is about Jasmine, the new girl, and her classmates taking 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 legend of 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, and the children all work together to save her.

The Elusive Butterfly revealed itself to everyone because of the teamwork so the children learn a good lesson not to judge other people.

“This is a major accomplishment for children, ages 5 through 14, to see their creativity, collaborative writing, acting lessons and dance instruction come to life on stage,” officials said.
