Theater

Our theater classes are a dynamic way for people to explore improvisation, discover humor in unexpected places and craft story lines with fellow theater-makers. In addition to classes, there are other exciting opportunities to perform (and to be an appreciative audience) at the JCCSF. This year’s What's Your Talent? amateur talent show is on May 2. And the JCCSF Community Players, established in 1925, are poised for an exciting revival.

These activities get you a stamp on your Summer Passport – find out more!

For more information about the JCCSF Community Players, What’s Your Talent? or the classes listed below, please contact Jackie Lewis at 415.292.1241 or jlewis@jccsf.org.
