"Dances With Shorts!" Culture is Catchy at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC
The J’s Cultural Arts Theatre, and the Bamachol Dance Academy of the MAR-JCC will each present very special productions this month with J-CAT’s presentation of My Favorite Shorts and Bamachol’s presentation of Dancing With The World.
Dancing with the World, which takes place on Sunday, March 6, 2011 at 6pm at the new Aventura Arts Center, in Aventura, Florida will assemble a multitude of folk dance troupes, each showcasing their own cultural background, and promote the union between various ‘small communities’
My Favorite Shorts is a compilation of short plays that showcases more than 40 student actors including high school, middle school, and elementary school players. “From comedy to drama, to melodrama, to farce, it’s truly an engaging and electric performance,”
Some of the plays within this play feature such favorites as The Golden Goose- A ‘story-theatre’
The Marriage Proposal- A super-farce by Chekhov, one of the funniest plays of all time about an old maid, her blustery father, and a hypochondriac suitor for her hand in marriage, The Monkey’s Paw- A melodrama/ghost story: Three wishes from a magically cursed monkey’s paw are granted, but never come to pass as the wisher hopes, and The 15-minute Hamlet- Stoppard’s farce about a group of six actors who have to put on Hamlet with only six actors, and 15 minutes, plus several other classic favorites.
