      EVENT DETAILS
      Ventura College Theatre: Ghetto by Joshua Sobel

      Ghetto by Joshua Sobel, A Ventura College Theatre Production

      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.
