(Lee’s Summit) – The Summit Christian Academy (SCA) Theatre Department will present Korczak’s Children, with performances at 7 p.m., November 8 – 10 on the Summit Christian Academy stage located at 1450 SW Jefferson in Lee’s Summit.  

Based on a true story, Korczak’s Children chronicles the self-less acts of Janusz Korczak, the teacher and director of the Warsaw Ghetto during the Nazi occupation of Poland in World War II. Korczak strove to keep the 200 Jewish boys and girls of his orphanage alive, safe, and hopeful in the face of horrific conditions. While tales of deportations to concentration camps spread, Korczak permits his orphans to stage a musical play to teach them about death. As the play is rehearsed, rumors become reality and Korczak must decide who can be saved and who must go to the final journey together.
