Dear WJT Community,
You haven't heard from us in a while, but we have been busy planning and pivoting, and then re-planning and pivoting again as the pandemic continues to alter our lives. We miss seeing you at the theatre, but we have kept you at the forefront of our minds. The arts are needed now more than ever to provide catharsis and entertainment in our lives. With that in mind, I am excited to finally share how WJT will be moving forward with programming in 2021!
We will be coming into your homes through several online initiatives, and we remain optimistic that we will be able to see you in person, at a distance, as well.
Your safety is of utmost importance to us, and your support during these turbulent times has meant a great deal. Stay happy, stay healthy and we look forward to connecting with you through theatre and the Jewish experience in 2021.
