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.

The JCC Musical Theater Community Acting Group presents...

A Kidsummer Night's Dream
A Musical Based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream
Book by Lynne Bartlett, Mark Leehy, and Kevin O'Mara
Music and Lyrics by David Billings, Rob Fairbairn, Mark Leehy, and Kevin O'Mara

A Kidsummer Night's Dream, a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, is a marvelous musical that explodes in a joyous celebration of Shakespeare's classic comedy. Kidsummer is full of mischief and mayhem, misunderstandings and magic potion mix-ups, as kings and queens, humble workers and fairies, all chase their dreams. This show is simply... MAGIC!

Clue, the Musical!

The internationally popular game is now a fun filled musical which brings the world's best know suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon. Comic antics, witty lyrics and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room.
