Kids in Israeli Periphery Town Get a Chance to Practice Their English - Through Opera

Amateur musical theater group, which is comprised mainly of immigrants from English-speaking countries, has been invited to perform its upcoming production of “Beauty and the Beast” in Yeruham.

In a bid to improve the English of its schoolchildren, the Negev town of Yeruham has invited an English-performing musical troupe to appear there next month. For the first time in its 30-plus year history, the Light Opera Group of the Negev will be bringing one of its shows to an Israeli development town.
