OHEL Bais Ezraâ€™s East Broadway Residence Lights up the Stage
Monday, June 10 was a special night for the men of the OHEL Bais Ezra East Broadway residence. After 3 long months of practice and hard work, the men performed their play â€śThe Jewel Thiefâ€ť in front of a packed crowd at the YM & YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood.
It was an evening full of laughs, surprises, and even tears of joy as these men stole the audienceâ€™s hearts and attention during their Oscar worthy performance. It was wonderful to see how the director, Giselle Dâ€™Souza, was able to bring out the talents of these truly gifted men.
The parent body in attendance was in awe of how well the men took to this new program. In a conversation after the play one parent commented on how this program â€śallows our sons to express their personalities in a manner which was never possible before.â€ť
The Drama Club encourages adults with intellectual and physical disabilities to experience the thrill of theater while learning skills that will help them thrive in every aspect of their lives. The East Broadway residence is very excited to continue with this drama program and look forward to their next performance, which will be this Fall.
