Purim Shpiel Auditions

December 13, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

JCP’s Purim Shpiel is an annual musical theatre workshop for children interested in exploring the dramatic arts with a focus on Jewish content.

We are thrilled to be working with our beloved writer and director team Tegan Miller & Assaf Gleizner for our third year in a row! No prior experience needed.

The Shpiel continues to be an enriching and important experience for our youth at JCP. For some children, this has been their first entryway into theatre. Everyone who auditions will be cast a role in the musical. Over the course of a few months, children gain practice with the audition process, improve their speaking and performance skills, and step outside of their comfort zones in a supportive and fun environment. We look forward to working with your children on this year’s exciting production!

Please contact Hannah Mira Friedland with any questions.
