This quintessential American soundtrack of hits is guaranteed fun for show tune fans young and old.
-- Dave Simon, Executive Director of the JCC

UpStaged troupe members include Jackie Bregman, William Dudeck, Chrys Page, and Tina Panaro, accompanied by Todd Lowry, pianist.

“Once we looked at the list of composers, we had an ‘Aha!’ moment,” said Jackie Bregman about planning the current show.  “We realized that so many of the songs we dearly love were written by Jewish composers who collectively contributed substantially to the Great American Songbook.”

“It was challenging to pare it down to a two-hour show,” added William Dudeck.  “But we were able to weave together the songs into a very enjoyable evening of intimate entertainment featuring compositions by Irving Berlin to Leonard Bernstein to Burt Bacharach.”

Tickets ($20 General, $30 Premium, $25 at the door) may be purchased online at www.JCCABQ.org, at the Abq JCC, or by calling (505) 348-4518. 
“Parents Night Out” for children 5 – 12 years old is available at the JCC from 6 – 10 pm. Reservations are required.
