Magic of Broadway coming to the Katz JCC on May 15

The JCC will host its eighth annual Broadway Live! event. Proceeds will benefit the JCC Camps at Medford financial assistance fund.

Broadway brings the magic of music to the Katz JCC stage for the eighth annual Broadway Live! event on Monday, May 15 at 7 p.m. Proceeds raised from the evening benefit the JCC Camps at Medford financial assistance fund, the Open Hearts/Open Doors special needs inclusion program at camp.

As he has done since the event’s inception, Cherry Hill native and former JCC Camps at Medford camper and staff member, Ben Lipitz, is returning to headline and produce the event. Lipitz, who plays the role of Pumbaa in the national tour of Disney’s “The Lion King,” has recruited an impressive cast of professional Broadway actors to perform. Members of this year’s Broadway Live! cast will travel to South Jersey from current Broadway smash hits “Hamilton,” “Mary Poppins” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”

“Year after year, it is my honor and pleasure to bring Broadway Live to South Jersey,” said Lipitz. “It gives all of the performers such joy to perform, but even more so is knowing that we are a vessel to providing such important funds to an incredible cause.”
