Under the guidance of Musical Director Jonathan Cahr and Director Janice Chaikelson Steinberg, the more than 50 cast rehearsed for more than six months to master the musical, acting, choreography and intricate staging skills necessary to perform this sweeping production. The cast performed such favorites as “Over the Rainbow,” “If I Only Had a Brain,” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” as well as an originally-written song, “A Very Good Man,” written by Cahr and Chaikelson Steinberg and performed by 8th grader Sarah Broder.
