The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington has announced a virtual staged reading of the play “The Grandkid” that will take place on Zoom. The performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 15 and 3 p.m. Aug. 16.
The play follows the lives of Julius Rothstein and his granddaughter Abby. Abby is accepted as a freshman student at the university where Julius teaches, so she moves in with him to be close to school and to keep her newly widowed grandfather company.
The reading is free, but an RSVP is required. Donations are suggested to help the Jewish Theatre of Bloomington. Attendees must RSVP on JTB’s website by Aug. 10 to receive a Zoom link to the staged reading.
