Meet our team
The newly formed Jewish Women’s Theater of South Florida, a 501(c)(3) non profit theater company, was created to provide an opportunity for Jewish women to develop, express and showcase their talents for singing, dancing and acting in a professional venue with top quality dramatic and musical performances for an all female audience.
Please meet our 2019-2020 professional team.
