Five and a half years ago, Nevei Kodesh members Wendy Miller and David Spiro were sitting in my kitchen, brainstorming ideas. What could we do to create an event that would bring the community together, be lots of fun, truly celebratory, remain affordable, yet also serve as a fundraising event? Wendy had the audacious idea of creating our own Broadway show. Broadway has a special connection to Jewish Americans. Musical theater was largely created by Jewish immigrants and children of immigrants, and Jewish Americans continue to be disproportionately involved in theater today.
As daunting as the task seemed that first year, each subsequent year we have attracted more and diverse talent, including a professional director, musicians and an assortment of talented singers/performers, ranging in age from 13-70. Our evening has also expanded as we included a delicious dinner and auction.
This year’s show on Sunday, May 5, will be our fifth. It includes numbers from recent musicals such as Dear Evan Hansen, Waitress and Come From Away, as well as classic shows such as Pippin, Little Shop of Horrors, Chicago, Phantom of the Opera and more. We often do our own unique take on each number.
Everyone has the opportunity to dress up for a Broadway premiere if they wish, and walk the red carpet. Ticket prices start at just $36 for the entire evening, including dinner, show and auction, with higher prices for front row seats. The event is lots of fun for all, and whether you come alone, with a partner, with family or friends, you will have a great time.
We also have an online auction currently running that is open to all, whether you attend the event or not! Our online auction includes a six month weekly share in an organic C.S.A., a livestream or video broadcast package, healing sessions, restaurant gift certificates, jewelry and more. Click here to bid in our auction. (You need not be present to win.)
The event as a whole is the most important fundraiser of the Nevei Kodesh year, and together we aim to raise over $100,000.
Time: Sunday, May 5, 5:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Location: Nevei Kodesh, 1925 Glenwood Drive, Boulder, CO 80304
