Starting tonight, the Bath House Cultural Center is kicking off a new play, “Jailbait,” by Deidre O’Connor, running until Aug. 31. It’s a witty play that takes place over the course of a dizzying night at a club and follows the parallel journey of two fifteen-year-old girls and two thirty-something men. When the unlikely foursome collides, they discover “surprising and dangerous compatibilities,” the website summary says. Ticket prices $10-$20. Buy tickets online.

Ever seen 500 butterflies released into the air? This Saturday, Miracle Players Foundation is hosting its third annual Peace, Hope & Butterflies event at Flag Pole Hill. The event was rained out on June 1 and got pushed to August 24 instead, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will feature music from up-and-coming Dallas bands and loads of activities to raise funding for research at Children’s Medical Center. There will be a petting zoo, an obstacle course, a pirate ship, arts and crafts, a giant slide, and the event will culminate in the release of 500 butterflies by Dallas area childhood cancer warriors. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children.
