Jewish plays go head to head, and you pick the winner
Now that the Charlotte Jewish Film Festival has established a national presence, can live theater be far behind? J Stage, a program of Levine Jewish Community Center, hopes not.
It’ll host the first Charlotte Jewish Playwrighting Contest as part of the national Jewish Plays Project – and you can see pieces of the three finalists and vote on the winner.
Charlotte is one of seven communities participating in this year’s national contest. (The others are Chicago, Hartford, Fairfax, Va., New York, Palo Alto, Cal., and Philadelphia). The national JPP office culled 10 finalists from 219 submissions; in Charlotte, 21 readers narrowed those 10 finalists to three. A long scene from each of those will be performed April 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Gorelick Hall at Shalom Park. Tickets are $10 at charlottejcc.org/jpp or 704.366-5007.
