"Matzah & Miracles"

A Passover Musical

THE STORY:  Another Passover? Another Seder? The Lerner kids, Ariel and Benjamin, think it's the most boring holiday ever! In the opening number, they yearn for “gefilte fish that swim away” and suggest that “matzah balls should fly right out of Mama’s pot!” Their "Bubbe" steps in to tell them the story that every Jew around the world tells at their Passover table... but in a magical, musical way. Bubbe transports the children back in time to ancient Egypt where they experience first-hand the liberation of the Hebrews from slavery. Shocked to find themselves embodying Moses and his brave sister, Miriam, Benjamin must confront the Pharaoh to “let my people go” and Ariel leads the Hebrews through the parting of the Red Sea. Once returned to the present, the Lerner kids (and audience members alike) will forever remember the story of Passover and the importance of its holiday traditions!

Reviews

Bound to have kids singing their way through the Seder, reliving the story and making it their own!
~ Ellie Aronowitz, Past President, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America Educates and entertains while telling an ancient tale in a modern format! As Bubbe says, "It's not enough to tell the story. Everyone must personally see themselves as having been a slave in Egypt and then delivered to freedom." Matzah and Miracles helps us fulfill this "mitzvah" by drawing us into the story and making us feel like we were in Egypt ... the songs in the musical will become part of every family's Seder tradition.
~ Rabbi Ken Brickman
