Youthful Yiddish Yuks

Young thespians take center stage in “Kids & Yiddish: Bagels & Yuks!” a bilingual musical comedy for families. The show is the eighth edition of the holiday production presented by the newly renamed National Yiddish Theatre — Folksbiene, along with the theater troupe Kids & Yiddish.

A multimedia satire that blends Jewish folk traditions, pop culture, education, family values and Hanukkah themes, “Kids & Yiddish: Bagels & Yuks!” follows the adventures of a group of boisterous, instrument-toting pranksters. The show is directed by Joanne Borts and co-written by Borts, Michael Fox and Zalmen Mlotek. Cast members include Borts, Lily Shoretz, Carly Baron, Ava Gantenbein, Aaron Mayer, Jenny Romaine and Michael Winograd. Kids & Yiddish shows, which introduce children to Yiddish language and culture, are 90% English and 10% Yiddish.

JCC in Manhattan, 334 Amsterdam Ave; Sundays throughout December; $20, $17 for children 12 and under. (212-279-4200, www.ticketcentral.com or www.folksbiene.org)
