TBT Jr. Players

Our 2022 Show 

  The TBT Junior Players are pleased to announce that this year’s production will be the Broadway hit that made Carol Burnett a star (or maybe the other way around), Once Upon a Mattress.  Performances will be in the Temple social hall on Saturdays, December 10th and 17th at 8:00 PM and Sunday, December 11th at 3:00 PM.

Tickets may be purchased online at https://tbtwantagh.seatyourself.biz, on Sunday mornings in the Temple Lobby, or on the day of the performance.  You can also email our ticket office at tbttix@tbtwantagh.org and we will help you purchase your tickets.  Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors (55 and over) and $12 for children (12 and under).  Please come support our Temple and our youth!  We look forward to seeing you there!   

Our History

 The TBT Junior Players are proudly entering our 51st year at our Temple!  It all began in 1971, as the Legacy Suburban Players mounted their debut production of Rogers and Hammerstein’s Carousel.  Evolving over time, first into the Suburban Junior Players and then into the TBT Junior Players, every Autumn we provided an opportunity not only for the Temple youth, but also for local children from local community to participate in the performing arts.  Our recent productions include Little Shop of Horrors, Guys and Dolls, 13 – The Musical, and last year’s extremely successful The Lightening Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.     

Our Cast and Crew

 Our cast is comprised of young performers ranging in age from 5 to 18.  Our cast begins rehearsing in September, while our crew begins building sets, gathering props, and handling everything else needed to produce the show.  Our cast and crew devote three days a week in order to put on the best show possible – all to express their love of the arts, and to support our Temple.   

 We are thrilled to introduce our 2022 production team: Christine Altman, Susan Fioribello and Michael Fioribello (Co-Producers), Mark Plavin (Scenic Director), Karen Friedlander (Costume Director) Rebecca Wygand (Director and Musical Director) and Liana Kaplan (Choreographer).  This marks Rebecca’s second show with the TBT Junior Players, as she previously musically directed the highly successful 2016 production of Guys and Dolls. Although this is Liana’s first show with the TBT Junior Players, she choreographed last year’s spectacular TBT Mainstage Players’ production of The Wizard of Oz.    

 We look forward to performing for you!
