||Under the direction of Adam Roberts, AJRT Artistic Director, the theater program at the JCC expands - offering more family friendly shows as well as more productions and workshops with adult performers and participants. In addition, several shows will move from the traditional performance space inside the J to unique spaces around the Dell Jewish Community Campus and to Downtown Austin for special community collaborations. With new programming and locations, Theater at the J evolves to become Austin Jewish Repertory Theater.
