Now entering its 5th season, J-CAT will feature six diverse shows, giving the opportunity for kids and adults alike to take the stage and be part of South Florida’s finest community theatre. The 2011-12 season will feature 3 community productions with an adult cast, and 3 youth theatre productions where local kids with aspirations of becoming actors, will have the opportunity to showcase their talents.
Moon Over Buffalo will run September 14-25, followed by an all youth production of the hit musical, Oliver! by Lionel Bart (Nov. 30-Dec. 18). Based on the well-known film staring Julia Roberts, Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling will be presented (Jan. 11-22), followed by a junior version of the classic Broadway fable, Guys & Dolls, Jr (March 14-25). Rounding out the season are two classics- an advanced youth production of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (April 18-29), and the adult production of Dale Wasserman’s widely-known hit, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (May 9-20).
“We are thrilled to be offering such a diverse repertoire of productions as we begin season 5,” mentioned J-CAT Artistic Director, Michael Andron. “This season will bring new variations on well known classics, that are sure to make audiences laugh, cry, smile and be touched by poignant performances with some of the finest actors ever to grace the J-CAT stage,” he continued.
