Jawaahir presents: Shoma!!!
Thursday-Sunday, September 29–October 2, 2016
We are so excited to be bringing back Shoma!
Did you know that the original was performed in 1998 at The Southern Theater and was many Jawaahir member's first Jawaahir show that they saw which led them to take classes from Cassandra at The Cassandra School? The script, by Kay Hardy Campbell, is being updated with cell phones and social media including some new surprises. Our director is Hilary Smith. We plan on bringing the Georges Lammam Ensemble back as well, with Georges Lammam, Jim Grippo, Michael Ibrahim, Miles Jay, Yaron Klein, Naser Musa, Karim Nagy, Susu Pampinin, and local musicians Tim O'Keefe and Laura Harada.
So, plan on joining us for this extraordinary show as we enter our second year at The Lab Theater!
