And Away They Went


The musical “And Away We Go” probably didn’t win any Tony Awards, but these amateur actors in 1955 look like they had plenty of fun performing it. Details about the show are scant, including the playwright and composer, but we do know that “And Away We Go” was performed in the auditorium of Hope High School in Providence. The show was produced by the Cranston Jewish Community Center, an organization that was once headquartered at 330 Park Ave. in Cranston but dissolved in 2012. The CJCC was also the former home of Temple Torat Yisrael before it moved into a new facility in East Greenwich. The center has since transformed into Praise Tabernacle Church.
