‘Great Schlep’ creators write anti-Trump musical

NEW YORK (JTA) – The group that created The Great Schlep, has written an anti-Donald Trump musical.

The musical, called Chump, is a satire of Trump’s Republican presidential campaign modeled on The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 satire of Adolf Hitler. Its music and script will be given away for free, to be produced by regional theaters and student groups. At the productions, audience members will be able to register to vote or sign up to volunteer for the presidential campaign.

Chump, announced in a fundraising appeal Sept. 1, was created by the Jewish Council for Education & Research, a super PAC that grew out of the effort to encourage young Jews to visit their grandparents in Florida and convince them to vote for Barack Obama in 2008.
