AMHERST — Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart will host two performances of the stage adaptation of “The Blue Rose,” a book by international humanitarian, Gerda Weissmann Klein.
One performance will take place on Wednesday, May 30, at 7 p.m., which is free and open to the public, with donations accepted. A second performance is scheduled for area students. Each performance will conclude with a brief question and answer session with the audience, which will be facilitated by representatives from The Blue Rose Foundation.
This production will be performed by members of the award-winning Theatre for Change. The story focuses on the character of Jenny, a child with developmental disabilities. The book was among the first to be written in an effort to help people understand and empathize with individuals who have developmental disabilities.
These performances of “The Blue Rose” are sponsored through the generous financial support of the Daigler Family Scholarship Fund, as administered by the Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo and in collaboration with the Blue Rose Foundation.
