Judy Maccabee: A Comedy with a Girl Hero!  is fast-paced, family-friendly fun – with an empowering theme – sometimes it takes a disguise to become your true self! In this merry mashup of the Hanukkah story, Judy, (disguised as “David”) joins Judah Maccabee’s army, gets a secret crush on Judah's nephew Jonathan, who is engaged to Judah’s niece Bathsheba, who falls for Achilles, a soldier who serves nutty General Apollonios, who is tricked into an engagement with Judy’s pet bear!  This historical/hysterical, gender-bender spins more twists and funny dialogue than a Hanukkah dreidel and urges everyone to be a hero – in your own way!
