Cara Freedman

Testimonials

"We have produced The Role Model, The Tower, Happily Ever Now and A Higher Ground. Cara Freedman's shows are some of the best teaching vehicles I know. The music is terrific and the kids love performing the shows. No one really realizes how much they have learned until the shows are over. From working on Cara's Shows as their entry to involvement at Temple, many adults have gone on to sit on or chair other Beth Am committees and projects. What an impact!"

"Out children loved being in THE TOWER! As a non-Jewish institution, the script of THE TOWER was easily adaptable and the message of working together and overcoming our differences remained the same! Thank you!"

"Cara Freedman helped us start our Kol Ami Drama Club. WE have built our reputation on Cara Freedman Productions and look forward to more producing many more. The more we work with her songs and scripts, the more I realize what a genius she is! The parents were blown away our first year. They thought they were coming to see some kiddie show and they were treated to an intelligent evening!"
