Who Are We and Why Are We Doing This?

We are a group of Jewish and non-Jewish theatre professionals who believe that theatre has always been our north star, telling us the stories of our lives and showing us a path forward. We have the talent and experience to create exciting and meaningful theatre.

There is a treasure trove of Jewish drama – contemporary, classic, richly humorous, and deeply meaningful. SJT brings to life plays and programs which express the uniqueness and universality of Jewish heritage and cultural life. We believe that a thriving Jewish theatre which reflects Jewish values, ideals, and literature in a positive way is essential at this point in time.

Jewish theatre has a long history of universal appeal – delighting and enlightening theatre lovers of all backgrounds with its humanitarian values and original humor. We are awed and humbled by the acceptance and enthusiasm of our community.

Our entire team is devoted to making the magic of theatre even more magical with the addition of a little Yiddishkeit (Jewish thinking).

SJT is a proud member of the Alliance for Jewish Theatre.
