Not Your Daddy’s Shakespeare: Come See One of Our Own

Come support one of our own! Joshua Krauskopf, a former Schmoozle coordinator who is now a B’yachad co-coordinator, will be performing Jan. 27 – Jan. 30 in a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s

Our own Josh K. (sitting) performs in January with a new theater group.

The Merry Wives of Windsor” along with his “loosely-banded acting troupe of friends.” All performances are at 7:30 pm at the Perpich Center for Arts Education. Tickets are only $5! (It’s all about making theater accessible and affordable for the masses.) To reserve tickets, call: 763-634-8150.

About the play: The notorious Sir John Falstaff steps out of the world of court life to take up residence in the country town of Windsor. There he attempts to take advantage of his own celebrity by seducing two happily married wives. But once the wives (and their husbands) find out the game that’s afoot, Shakespeare’s fat knight may find the last laugh to be on him. This sunny comedy is awash with wit, deception, and the fun to be had when one of literature’s most beloved larger-than-life personalities makes the mistake of underestimating small-town folk.

B’yachad: Let’s go together! Look for details of a Thu. Jan. 28 dinner, theater and dessert outing in future e-blasts.

Note: If you’re a JSC member performing or exhibiting any work, let us know so that we can acknowledge your talent as well.

B’yachad at Applebee’s

We had a minyan at Applebees! 10 people total came to schmooze and just get to know one another while the Vikings played on the screen in the background. We had some faces that we had not seen at B'Yachad in quite a while. It was nice to have everyone together.
