Oy! Rehearsal

Preparations are under way for our Teen Theater production of Rich Orloff's play Oy!. Each playlette introduces one Yiddish word by embedding it in an amusing and thought provoking narrative.
Adult rehearsal begins at 4; teens join at 5 for their scenes.
Our talented teens and adults have taken on 7 of the skits and are preparing for a June live-on-Zoom production.
We hope to keep this play in circulation and even add additional plays and readings. Please contact Rabbi Andrea if you (teens or adults) would like to receive future announcements of casting calls
