Ivey-Winning HERSHEL AND THE HANUKKAH GOBLINS Returns to MJTC Stage
Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company (MJTC) continues its 23rd season with Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, by Shari Aronson, based on the book by Eric A. Kimmel.
Hershel of Ostropol has been walking long and hard with growing anticipation for the Hanukkah holiday. Tired and hungry, he imagines the smell of latkes and the bright lights of the menorah. But when Hershel arrives in Helmsbergville, the village is silent; goblins have been preventing Hanukkah there for years! Can this visitor help bring Hanukkah back? Directed by Shelli Place.
Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins features Neal Beckman, Kim Kivens (previously seen at MJTC in Church & State), Julie Ann Nevill (previously seen at MJTC in The Magic Dreidels, Hanukkah Lights In the Big Sky, Women's Minyan, and Lovers & Traitors: The Killing of The Rosenbergs) Charles Numrich (previously seen at MJTC in The History of Invulnerability) and Joe Wiener.
