The SJCC is honored to sponsor Mercer Island High School’s production of “And a Child Shall Lead,” a play written by Michael Slade. Please join us for a night at the theater in support of these teens.
“And a Child Shall Lead” is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the “Jewish city” established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty — playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper — all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war. Recommended for audiences ages 12+.
Join the J for the performance on Thursday, February 9! We’ll sit together at the show and then stick around for the post-show talkback with actors and staff from the Anti-Defamation League about antisemitism in the community and around the world.
