Celebrating Creativity and Community at Jewish Family Theatre

JFT is a talented group that amplifies the incredible creativity present in our community. Our mission is to encourage individuals to explore art in their own lives through affordable, high-quality theatrical experiences. As a true community theatre, JFT operates on an all-volunteer basis, welcoming friends of all ages and ethnicities, from beginners to experienced professionals, to learn, enjoy, and actively participate in all aspects of our live theatre productions.
