AND A CHILD SHALL LEAD

National Jewish Theater Foundation REMEMBRANCE READINGS

Directed By Joey Landwehr

Ages 7-19

Join us for our first collaboration with the National Jewish Theater Foundation. This play will be performed as a reading on November 12 in remembrance of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass).  The evening will also feature an award ceremony for NJTF honorees from the La Jolla Playhouse and The Old Globe. 

About The Play: This is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the "Jewish city" established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty -- playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper -- all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war. Read a preview online.

Auditions: Tuesday, October 15, 7:00-8:00pm & Sunday, October 20, 5:00-7:00pm 

Approximate Rehearsal Schedule

Performance: Tuesday, November 12 (Evening)

*Additional performances may be added in collaboration with the San Diego Unified School District

MATILDA

Directed By Joey Landwehr

Ages 7-19


Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this Tony Award-winning musical revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, Miss Honey. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

FIREFLIES

The Story of the Artists of Terezin Featuring the Original Children's Opera BRUNDIBAR

Directed By Joey Landwehr

Ages 7-19



It is 1944. Imprisoned at Terezin Camp in Czechoslovakia, Austrian artist Friedl Dicker-Brandeis uses her art lessons to help the children cope with the realities of their daily existence. Despite the terrible conditions, Terezin is touted as Hitler’s “gift to Jews” and when the International Red Cross presses for an inspection, the community is forced to contribute to Nazi propaganda. They devise a plan to communicate with the visitors, using a production of the opera BRUNDIBAR. No matter how huge and terrible the lie, truth can still triumph through the enduring strength of human love and creativity. 

This production was a JCompany WORLD PREMIERE in 2009.
