A rich co-curricular, after school theater program has been developed that will allow students to participate in theater and performing arts workshops even while online.
These workshops will offer the opportunity for students to engage with local and national theater professionals to deepen their understanding of a variety of subjects from choreography, to auditioning, to design.
Offered after school by Zoom at least twice a week (45-90 minutes), students can choose to drop in, participate in the design continuum, or experience every workshop as a way to enhance their skills in any subject. The results of these workshops will inspire JCHS’s future productions and allow the students to become a part of the entire creative process. Some workshops will be offered exclusively for JCHS students, some for our community of alumni, faculty, staff and parents, and some will be in collaboration with students from different youth theater programs in the SFBay Area!
This workshop will hone the skills students need to sing a full ensemble number while holding harmonies and listening to fellow performers. Students will also learn how to perform as an ensemble and soloist on Zoom.
Where would theater in America be without the contribution of Yiddish Theater? From operetta, to satire, to naturalism, the immeasurable depth and scope of influence is profound in our most beloved works onstage. This workshop will focus on the play "God of Vengeance" and the play it inspired, "Indecent."
JCHS is grateful for generous operational, programmatic, and financial support from:
