General Seating Tickets: $30
Our theater community incorporates actors, singers, dancers, lighting designers, stage managers, ticket takers, and bake sale cashiers, to name just a few. On stage you will see community members of all ages, from 3rd graders to teens to seniors. We can create community, but we can’t bring the production to life without the help of our benefactors. Year after year we depend on you to support our production to bring the gift of theater to life for all.
Angel Donors make Rodeph Sholom Theater possible. (And true, you also get special seating and a party.)
Great Big Steak: $1,000
Pease Pudding: $500

All Angels receive two tickets for the performance of their choice and are entitled to reserved seating. Angels of all levels are also prominently listed in the show’s Playbill® and are invited to join the cast and crew at a private reception following the Saturday night performance. If you are able to be a “Great Big Steak” supporter you can place a full page advertisement in the program to offer your congratulations to the cast and crew.

New York City is one of the world centers of great theater, and many of our congregants are participants in the NYC theater scene–as producers, actors, directors, volunteers, theatergoers…one day the light went on: hey, let’s put on a show!
In 1981, Rodeph Sholom produced Fiddler on the Roof with Joan Steinman and Bea Bayer as assistant directors to Andy Cadiff and Stephanie Lasher as assistant stage manager to Ken Weiss. It was followed by seven other productions, including such greats as Show Boat, King and I, and The Sound of Music. After an eighteen-year hiatus, the Rodeph Sholom Theater Company was reinstated in 2005 by Rabbi Leora Kaye and a small group of theater-enthusiast congregants, Jerilyn Perman, Brad Zizmor, and Peter Shaerf to name a few. Our production draws on the talents of our congregants and working theater professionals. Some recent productions include Seussical™, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, 42nd Street, and The Drowsy Chaperone.
