CELEBRATING 100 YEARS WITH CENTERSTAGE
CenterStage’s history is long and rich. In its first incarnation, the theatre troupe was known as the A.H.M.Y. Players, a play on the Jewish Community Center’s original name, The Young Men’s Hebrew Association. The group, led by President Joseph Taustine, first produced a simple musical review called Behind the Scenes, which was directed by Emil Kuper and performed on April 27, 1913. The first JCC play was The Obligation, an original piece written by Charles Marris, which premiered on April 6, 1914.
Ned Beatty and Warren Oates are among the best known actors who have graced the Jewish Community CenterStage. Over the years, the group was also known as The YMHA Players, The Center Players and Heritage Theatre. John R. Leffert took over as Artistic Director in 2000, renaming the company CenterStage, and has been instrumental in the group’s impressive growth and success over the past 14 years.
We look forward to continuing the tradition of bringing entertaining, provocative theatre of the highest quality to the Louisville community for another 100 years!
