Our Staff


Jewish Theatre Grand Rapids is a volunteer organization. Actors, crew members, board members and most support staff all donate their time for the love of the organization and theatre. If you would like to join in on the fun please contact us to let us know. There are many ways to help the organization out - publicity, grant writing, backstage, costumes, makeup, ushering, or even baking snacks for the cast and crew during rehearsal.
