The cast of "natasha and the coat" leads a doorways program.

Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company‚Äôs Doorways program first began in 2002.  MJTC is proud to provide this innovative programming to complement the work on stage. Such programs include:

  • community forums

  • lectures and symposia

  • events in partnership with other organizations such as museums and synagogues

  • post performance discussions

  • continuing legal education seminars (CLE) for credit

  • work with school children

  • and more!

Doorways programs are designed to open the doors to greater understanding and enjoyment of the plays we present and to give deeper insights into the subjects and issues they address. Each production of the season has Doorways programs to enhance the artistic and educational value of the work you see onstage.  Our post performance discussions feature esteemed guests who are professionals in our community. They join us to provide further information on topics in the production, and foster stimulating conversation with those in attendance. Our CLE programs are co-sponsored by the law firm of Fredrikson & Byron, P.A.
