Megillah U! – A PAS Affiliate – Lifelong Learning with a Twist

Purim is a time to let our silly selves shine. It is a great source of pride to PAS that the Purim Spiel is our largest intergenerational event held all year. "Multi-generational" describes the audience, and it also describes the performers and the crew. Whether you attend Congregational School, High School, or Melton, you are encouraged to participate. And even if you attend no classes at all, now is your chance! This year, Esther is going to college, and you can join her at Megillah U!

Megillah U is open to anyone ages 6 to 106 who wants to sing, laugh, move, learn, and build community. All Spiel material is family-friendly and intended for wider audiences. Whether you have ever been an actor, singer, or dancer, or if you are looking for a chance to be one for the first time, Megillah U is your place. Here at Megillah U, there is a totally open admissions policy. Show up, and you’re in!

We’re holding Open Campus (also known as kickoff rehearsal) in early December! Be there to find out what classes and seminars there are (also known as songs and scenes). You may be first to find out who will be our Homecoming Queen.
