Each show is a collaborative writing effort with original music by Leonard Running and specially designed puppets
by Sue Hey.
Besides performing for literally hundreds of thousands throughout the Midwest, Butterfly has written, designed,
constructed and performed two environmental shows for the Rapid City Public Works Department: Alice in Waterland
and Danny and the Methane Monster. In addition, they have produced a video version of their holiday show, The
Christmas Star, which has been presented on South Dakota Public Television.
Leonard Running and Sue Hey also perform guitar and vocal music as Butterfly in coffeehouse settings with an
accent on Leonard's original music. His CD, Folk Songs for the New Age is now available.
Whether they help their friend Orville Dexter Dennis ( O.D.D.)Duck through another merciless trampling by the
Buffalo Gals or help Alice recall the fun facts about water in Alice in Waterland, Butterfly shows are musical,
magical and full of laughter for the whole family.
