Oy Vey Cafe at Home!
Right now it seems the world has way more narishkeit than ever before. Every classic sitcom, favorite rock band, and popular movie are coming together during the pandemic to beam a little laughter and joy right into our homes. So a few of us began thinking last week on how CRC could join in the fun. And we thought — what better way to bring our Central Reform community together using a CRC favorite: Oy Vey Cafe.
On Sunday, May 24 at 7:00 pm, CRC is live-streaming an epic variety show: Oy Vey Cafe at Home, featuring our best entertainers; our congregants! That’s right, now is your opportunity to show off your best accordion Yiddish rap, your dynamic guitar duo, or your shelter-in-place sock puppet act. Think of the evening as one part The Voice and one part The Gong Show with a dash of SNL.
**THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT YOUR ACT IS TUESDAY, MAY 19. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW TO SUBMIT.
CRC also needs your acts! As Cole Porter said, Anything Goes! Some family-friendly ideas include: performing a story or sketch, stand-up comedy, doing impressions, reciting poetry, Acapella or Beatboxing, lip-syncing a song, doing a fashion reveal, sharing your artwork, playing an instrument, juggling, or breaking out your best dance moves. Your act will ideally be performed live on the Livestream or (if necessary) be pre-recorded.
All acts should be under 5 minutes. All acts will be considered. You absolutely need to submit your ideas. The entire evening will consist of about a dozen acts.
If you are game, we are! Please fill out the form at this link, https://bit.ly/OYVEHCAFE and our own improv guru and Oy Vey Cafe at Home emcee, Ed Reggi, will contact you. If you’d like to volunteer a friend, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
