The Chanukah Guest

by Jenna Zark
based on the book by Eric A. Kimmel

A return of the MJTC commission that was a sold-out hit, this hilarious and endearing tale tells the story of Bubba Brayna, making latkes for the first night of Chanukah, when the smell from her kitchen brings an unexpected and very hungry visitor. Based on the award-winning children’s book of the same name by Eric A. Kimmel, this joyful and interactive holiday play is perfect for the whole family! Suitable for children three and up. Join us 15 minutes before each production to see an special bonus scene with the actors preparing for the show!
