JCC Musical theater
Community Acting Group

Our Musical Theater Community Acting Group is open to JCC Members and Non Members, ages 8-adult. We meet once a week at the JCC for a 2 hour rehearsal. During that time we work on perfecting our musical theater skills while blocking scenes, learning dances and songs and building a community of actors that support each other’s growth. We’d love for you to join our “family” with our next production. To register, call (402) 334-6419. For questions, call Esther Katz at (402) 334-6406. All performances are held in the JCC Theater.

Love! At the Cafe!

Love! At the Cafe! is a romantic comedy with big 1950's song and dance numbers. Love! is about two love triangles and conflicts that emerge in the "simple" times of the 50s at Bonnie's Cafe. The main character is an all-American teenage boy, Jimmy, who has had a crush on the pretty waitress, Sharon, for a very long time. He is about to disclose his "love" to her by asking her to the fourth of July party, only to be thwarted by the evil, self-centered and rich Fred, who has already asked her to the party. Melvin, the head cook, is engaged to the flamboyant actress wanna-be, Candy, who is now in hot pursuit by the phony Hollywood "producer", Jet. Bonnie runs the Cafe and is in the middle of all the shenanigans. Music and lyrics by our very own, Karen Sokolof Javitch. Script and lyrics by James Spicer Conant.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lyrics by Tim Rice | Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
