Purim Shpiel - March 20th at 7:00 pm

Join in On The Purim Fun!
Come join the fun on Wednesday, March 20 at 7:00pm as we read from the Megillah.   When that fun is over, the Youth Acting Troupe will present a Purim video loosely based on that All-American family , The Simpsons.  DOH!
And then ...
Hold onto your Bobby Sox and Brylcreem!  It's fast times at Shushan High!  After the video, The TAS Players proudly present the world-premiere of SCHMALTZ (A Purim version of GREASE). It's 1957 , and the dancing is hot!  Elvis is on the record player, and skirts are flying! There's Grease, or should we say, Shmaltz, in every guy's hair ... and "Shmaltz is the word!"  
Danny Ahasuerus Zucko is “king” of the senior class at Shushan High. Some Jewish students attend Shushan High, but they are hiding their identity because they’ve heard that Jews are being persecuted in Shushan. A new guidance counselor  -- HAMAN  – joins the faculty with one purpose in mind. He’s out to find the Jewish students and expel them all.  He bribes Danny to help him in exchange for some school money to spiff up the race car Danny and the other Thunderbirds are building in shop class. Danny agrees because he thinks that there aren’t any Jewish kids at Shushan High. When he finds out that his best friend -- Knicki Mordecai --  and his girlfriend -- Sandy Esther-- are Jewish, he is ready to stop HAMAN  in his tracks. 
Will Haman succeed and expel all the Jews?  Or will Danny, Knicki & Sandy get him fired?   Show up on March 20 and find out. Be there or be square!
