WJT headed back to stage

  • Print

THE Winnipeg Jewish Theatre has confirmed that it is back in business.

The stage company, citing serious financial issues, suddenly closed its doors last February, ending its 2013-14 season with one more show to go. Thursday morning WJT announced it would re-open under the interim team of Kayla Gordon as artistic director, Karla Berbrayer overseeing marketing and development and Tracy Goltsman as production manager.

"I spent 10 years of my life building up that theatre," Gordon says of her decision to return. "I want to help them for the year and get things back on track."

The theatre will return to the stage in December with the Borscht Belt comedy musical A Jew Grows in Brooklyn, featuring Jake Ehrenreich, an American-born child of Holocaust survivors.
