"Brilliant performances!" The Tolucan Times. "Brilliant portrayals!" hails broadwayworld.com. "Just plain brilliant!" exclaims playwright/performer Wendy Michaels. This joyous musical comedy, perfect for audiences of all ages, follows the life of the beloved Yiddish story-teller and his mespoche, spinning tales of his loves and losses, his travels, his travails and the tremendous joy and optimism that kept him going against all odds. "It made me think of the heyday of vaudeville in New York. It's grounding to see this part of our shared past re-created in sunny Santa Monica, whether or not we actually grew up on tales of shtetl life. These stories of inequity and triumph, love and laughter, family and religion are part of our heritage and identity, and connect us to a part of ourselves." Jewish Journal
Feb. 7th - May. 25th
"Our daughter learned more about drama in one week with SMP than in all the productions she's ever done - put together. We're absolutely ecstatic!" raves educator J. Dohr. "I am continuously impressed! The workshops and plays are structured so that every child can be successful!" raves B. Clough. Daily Variety calls it, "One of the best in the country!" No small parts - no playing the second tree or third spear carrier - no double or triple casting - every child receives a role written specifically for them, based on their creative input, highlighting their strengths and challenging them to excel in all theatre skills, including performance and stage technique, teamwork, self-confidence, creative expression and communication, projection and enunciation, as well as reading and language comprehension, theatre etiquette, and a true love of and appreciation for theatre arts. And small classes mean lots of personal attention for every member of the class.
Enrollment is open for the Spring session of this ever popular workshop program, now in its 50th year, a fun experience that helps students expand their imagination as they act, sing, dance, play theatre games, improvise, work with costumes and make-up, lighting and sound, sets and props, and perhaps best of all, collaborate with professional playwrights and directors to create an awesome fully staged original production with music, written just for them. No experience needed, but even the most advanced young actor will benefit from this workshop.
Classes meet weekly, Thursday afternoons (Feb 7-May 23) or Saturday mornings (Feb 9-May 25) - enrollment accepted through Feb 23. Ask about Spring Break and Summer Theatre Camps, the Summer Japan Theatre Adventure for ages 12 and up, and workshops for adults, too!
