Come with friends, parents and grandparents to the JCC’s state of-the-art theater for PURIM SPIEL, a unique Shadow Puppet Theater created in artistic collaboration by Leonid Khanin and Luba Proger, founders of Experience a shadow puppet show projected on a spherical “bubble” that will have you cheering for Queen Esther. For the first time, this unique children’s puppetry production of the Purim story will be performed in two languages, in Russian at 11AM and in English at 12 NOON by professional musicians. The Russian version includes songs from classic Soviet cartoons while the English one features parodies of well-known musical theater, pop and rock tunes.
Special book readings from PJ Library will take place after the show in The JCC lobby. Also at the lobby: Zshuk Art Initiative Puppet Making Workshops (11:30AM and 12:30PM).
Families will enjoy tasting hamantaschen (traditional Purim cookies) with beverages and other Purim treats.
The Purim Spiel Shadow Theater Project was made possible, in part, with generous support from The Genesis Philanthropy Group and Olga and Ruvim Breydo. The original 2009 production was made possible by The Center Without Walls, a project of COJECO, a beneficiary of UJA-Federation of NY.
TWO SHOWS at 11 AM (in Russian), 12 NOON (in English)
