The Butterfly Project


The Butterfly Project, Wolf Performing Arts Center’s theatre access initiative, produces and tours productions addressing issues of social justice and identity to venues throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area free of charge to our audiences and hosts.  The play is performed by actors in grades 6-12.    


The Butterfly Project seeks to:

  • Inspire the use of theatre as a platform for social change
  • Instill the need to promote awareness and acceptance
  • Invigorate a fight against injustice and become advocates through art

“I started this project in 7th grade, and now I'm in 10th grade. That means that Butterfly is going to be one of the most  important parts of my early to mid-teenage years… It always gives the message of hope, selflessness,  compassion, and perseverance.”
