J*Company, its director and actors win numerous awards

LA JOLLA, California (Press Release) – J*Company Youth Theatre, a program of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture, announced its National Youth Theatre and Old Globe Theatre nominations and awards for the recently completed 2009-2010 season, which featured productions of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s beloved musicals South Pacific, The King and I, The Sound of Music, and Cinderella.   

“To have had the opportunity to direct these fantastic Rodgers and Hammerstein productions has been an absolute dream, and to be honored with so many awards is just icing on the musical cake,” said Joey Landwehr, J*Company’s Artistic Director.  “I count myself lucky to have been able to work with these wonderfully talented young artists.”   “It is amazing to me that we produce four shows a year and since becoming Artistic Director of J*Company almost five years ago, we have not presented one production that has not been honored in some way,” said Landwehr.  “I am such a proud papa!”  

Landwehr directed all four productions of the 2009-2010 season.  Landwehr has worked extensively as an actor and director in New York City, both on and off Broadway, as well as in national tours and regional theatre.
