JFACT goes to the Goodspeed
The Jewish Federations Association of CT (JFACT) is hosting an evening at the Goodspeed Opera House on Sunday, Oct. 15, 6:30 p.m., to see the musical “Rags: An American Musical.” The musical tells the story of a young mother and her son, fresh off of Ellis Island, and their search for lost family and a sense of home at the turn of the 20th century. The streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope.
In keeping with JFACT’s June Donor Match program, those who pledge to donate $180 to JFACT during the month of June will receive a ticket to a cocktail reception to be held prior to the show at the Gelston House at 5 p.m., and to the meet-‘n-greet with the cast after the show.
