Bruriah Students Shine on Stage in Legacy Production

After months of preparation, hours of practice and weeks of anticipation, Bruriah High School’s annual Legacy production debuted on the Bruriah stage on Sunday to two packed performances and rave reviews. The play, “Os He L’Olam,” told the moving story of a girl in 1911 who was saved from the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire as a result of her observing Shabbos. The moving, dramatic story was punctuated with several beautiful dances, choirs, ensembles and stomp performances. The entire production was overseen by beloved faculty member, Jillian Moss, whose theater background and expertise elevated the performance to the next level.

This annual production is one that is both led by and stars the Bruriah students, and affords each of them the opportunity to showcase their prodigious talents both onstage and offstage. Students who prefer the spotlight are able to shine in artistic performances, while students who prefer to contribute backstage are producers, stage managers, and scenery designers. “It was one hundred percent student driven!” marveled Bruriah Principal Esther Eisenman. “They wrote the script, choreographed the dances and even arranged the music. With Ms. Moss’s support, they were able to execute their vision on stage with passion and conviction.”

In addition to the creative outlet and entertainment it provided, the Bruriah production ultimately fosters a tremendous sense of camaraderie, school spirit and teamwork and each student feels extremely proud of what they have accomplished together.
