"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!"

-- Dr. Bonnie Eilan

Kol Ami Drama Club Director, White Plains Jewish Community Center, New York
"We produced WE ARE YOUR SONG, AMERICA-A STORY OF ELLIS ISLAND. From beginning to end, the show was a great learning experience for all. How wonderful to find good theater material for Jewish young people!"

About "A Sign Upon Your Hand"

This mini-musical was inspired by 17-year-old Adam Stone, a deaf teenager, and his relationship with his Jewish interpreter, along with his quest to pursue his religious training. This inspiring story teaches us compassion, Tikun Olam, and the pursuit of Mitzvot. Set in a religious school classroom, the unruly students have yet to keep a steady teacher. When an unsuspecting friend of the principal comes along to step in for a day, he and the students find they are in for more than they ever imagined.

This production received a standing ovation at the Central Conference of American Rabbis in Anaheim. The play was featured on the national TV show 48 hours. The musical finale, ONE BY ONE, was exclusively used by the Jewish Federations' annual campaign and the opening number, and GOTTA DO A MITZVAH NOW has been used by congregations all over the country for Mitzvah day.


  • For amazing results, use an interpreter in the rehearsal process and for the production.
  • A SIGN UPON YOUR HAND uses an inexpensive, easy set. The costumes are mostly street clothes in the latest fashions. This is a fabulous touring show.
  • This can also become a teaching play. You can prepare Q and A's to be discussed in the classrooms after the show, or even allow the audience to ask questions.
