*Kickstarter Campaign For Original Holocaust Drama *
*The Star on My Heart*
Local residents may remember the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild Teen Drama
award winning presentation of the play *I Never Saw Another Butterfly* a
few years ago. The play, about the Holocaust and the approximately 15,000
children of the Terezin concentration camp, was directed by Angela
Miloro-Hansen, Chardon resident. During that production, contact was made
with Inge Auerbacher, one of the few child survivors of the Terezin camp.
Ever since, Chris Cipriani and Miloro-Hansen have been working to bring
Inge’s amazing and inspirational story to the stage. Working with Inge
Auerbacher’s memoirs, and Inge herself, Angela has spent the last two years
turning the events of Inge’s life into a play.
*The Star On My Heart* is an independent project in collaboration with
Geauga Lyric Theater Guild, Chardon, and the Shore Cultural Centre, Euclid.
The original play will premiere at both venues in November. Along with the
performances there will be educational outreach, and Inge Auerbacher will
be hosted in Ohio to attend the premier and speak to the public.
This project was fortunate to receive an Ohio Arts Council grant through
Shore Cultural Centre towards a portion of expenses. The OAC grant has a
goal to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural
enrichment for all Ohioans.
Additional funding for the project will come from variety of sources, one
being a recently launched Kickstarter campaign. A $5000.00 Kickstarter goal
must be reached by September 20, 2015 to receive the monies from that
campaign. To help make this project a success, you can visit
