When Fred Braff of Fair Lawn, suggested to his peers at the JCC of Northern NJ’s Active Seniors program, “Let’s put on a show!” to his surprise, the idea was embraced by many of the program regulars. Manager of JCC’s Active Seniors, Jennifer Sauer, took the prompt seriously and ran with the idea.

Within three weeks she had local veteran theater director, Hannah Price, another JCC Active Senior, lined up to direct an original musical that Hannah herself had co-written as well as virtuoso, Hal Keshner, set to accompany the vibrant cast of eight brave souls who stepped up to co-star in this inaugural production which includes one septuagenarian and six octogenarians.

Rehearsals, which started right after Labor Day, take place every Thursday after lunch for an hour and a half, even at the risk of exhausting the cast after an active morning of exercise, programming, and lunch. The show is a musical revue which recounts the Jewish and secular calendar year, month-by-month through song and narration.

There will be only one performance on Thursday, November 17 at 11 AM at Temple Avodat Shalom 385 Howland Ave., River Edge. There is a suggested donation of $5 which includes a kosher catered lunch.  Donations of all sizes are always welcome. Tickets should be reserved ahead by calling the JCC (201) 666-6610.
