Based on Holocaust Diaries: “Ghetto” Opens Weds. at Ventura College

November 12, 2019
Ghetto written by Joshua Sobel and directed by Nathan Cole in a Ventura College Theatre Production opens at 730pm on Weds. Nov 13 for a FREE preview in the Helen Yunker Auditorium in the VC Performing Arts Center on the Loma Vista side of the Ventura College Campus. The play continues Th. Nov. 14, 15, and 16 with tickets for $5 for students, staff, and seniors, and $15 general admission. Purchase tickets here.
SYNOPSIS: “Told through the eyes of a surviving theatre director and ventriloquist, Ghetto recounts the story of a troupe of actors and artists tasked with forming a theatre company in the Nazi occupied Jewish ghetto of Vilna, Lithuania. They are ruled by Kittel, a sadistic young commandant with a saxophone in one hand and a pistol in the other. Kittel falls for the company’s star actress and singer, who like the other performers, is on the edge of death. The performers give their hearts and talents to survive and save their fellow entertainers by creating dynamic scenes, songs, and dances that become a center of unity and solidarity for the oppressed community. A dynamic and moving account based on diaries of the Holocaust, the tale of this historic ghetto reminds us that the spirit of life — and of art — will never be destroyed, even in the face of impending annihilation.”
They warn the performance “may not be appropriate for children under the age of 12 due to adult content and the reenactment of gun violence. Please be aware it will contain smoke effects, gun sound effects, and loud noises.”
