The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades has just established Palisades Players, an inspirational new home for professional, pre-professional and highly experienced theater artists. As a new community theater serving talent from throughout Northern New Jersey to NYC and Broadway, Palisades Players will showcase quality theatrical events, primarily featuring works that illustrate Jewish culture and tradition and celebrate the work of Jewish playwrights. The goal is to become a growing hub for actors preparing for careers on Broadway that will also draw Broadway audiences to our community, creating a dynamic artistic corridor between the Palisades and Broadway.
To launch the first season, the JCC is seeking support from artists, arts organizers and patrons of the arts who share the JCC’s mission to maintain a thriving theater arts center in our local community. To celebrate its launch, the JCC is planning a major fundraising benefit entitled Broadway: A Jewish Experience to take place November 7 at 7:30 pm and Nov 8 at 2:30 pm. Join us for this fun, lively musical review featuring Broadway performers Tim Connell and Sophie Knapp plus many other top level actors and singers.
