We are delighted to partner with our friends at The Osher Marin JCC (San Rafael, CA) and other JCC program partners* to bring you


Four Thursdays, Sept 3-24, 2020:  4:00-5:30 (EDT) on Zoom

Let Osher Marin Jewish Community Center Program Director, James Sokol, sneak you in the Stage Door to go “backstage” on Broadway! A different, special guest theater professional – who brings his/her unique expertise, experiences and insights to the discussion – will be featured at each of these exclusive, behind-the-scenes visits. Live Q&A and photos/video clips (when available) will enrich the experience.

Your ticket purchase helps support not only this program, but also our special guests – theater professionals – who are mostly or completely out of work. 

Come learn, off-stage, what makes the magic happen on-stage!

Optional Broadway Chat: If you like, stay after the class for an additional 30-mins to meet other Broadway lovers in a small “chat room” and discuss a proposed question or just connect over the topic of the small group’s choice. No need to register for the chat; it will be offered at the end of each class.

*Partner list is on the Eventbrite ticket site.
