Introducing... a brand new TYKEs summer theater program in the JCC Hart Theater for kids entering grades 7 and up!

August 14 to 25

The Shoemaker and the Elves

This exciting new TYKEs program provides more advanced acting, singing and dancing training to kids entering grades 7 and up who are looking for an enriching indoor (air conditioned!) summer theater program, including a final performance for family and friends. In this wacky musical, five eccentric and endearing elves work their hysterically funny magic to help the penniless shoemaker create specialized footwear for a cast of zany characters including Olympian Zoom Corrigan. The production features excellent male and female comedic roles. In addition to theater work on-stage, we’ll enjoy the JCC’s many amenities, including two indoor pools, outdoor splash pad, InZone, gym and more. Kids must enroll for both weeks.

The Great DuBois

Masters of Variety

JUNE 3 - 4, 2017

Back by popular demand!

Michael DuBois' Solo Circus and The Amazing Viktoria Grimmy amazed JCC audiences with magic, juggling and circus/sideshow stunts. Their new show...The Great DuBois features new tricks and routines wrapped up in a cozy blanket of comedy. DuBois got his start performing as a JCC camper before appearances on Jay Leno and David Letterman catapulted him to international recognition. Grimmy is a fifth-generation circus performer and aerialist who created and performed circus acts for the Tony® Award Winning Broadway production of Pippin and has performed with the Big Apple and Ringling Brothers Circuses.
