Today we recognize Juneteenth, an important celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. In this spirit, we also honor and express our support for the fight to achieve racial justice and equality for all individuals. Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company remains steadfast in our work to foster tolerance, and we look forward to upcoming opportunities to implement programming toward these goals.

We’re pleased to share with you our interview for the week. Lisa Imbryk, Marketing and Membership Coordinator at Dakota County Historical Society, has worked on many shows with MJTC. Most recently, she was the costume and properties designer for O my God! and the properties designer for Significant Other. Lisa spoke with Barbara Brooks about her creativity as a child in Spokane, and how she came to Minnesota and found her way to the theater. Their discussion is below.
