Bruriah Students Steal the Show

In two sold out performances of Bruriah’s annual production this past Sunday, the talents of Bruriah students left no doubt as to why the school motto is “At Bruriah I Can.”

The musical production, “B’Chol Libi Dirashticha,” took the audience on a journey through life’s celebrations and struggles, recognizing the hand of Hashem at each moment. The audience laughed, cried and felt inspired by the show’s powerful and thought-provoking message so poignantly captured by the production’s student script writers.

Kayla Broth, Bruriah faculty and director of Production, marveled at the seamless manner in which all of the many pieces came together to create a singular masterpiece performance. “Every student invested her heart into improving hercraft, collaborating as a team, and troubleshooting glitches along the way.” Bruriah Principal Dr. Bethany Strulowitz elaborated, “It was due to Bruriah’s signature emphasis on nurturing the individual as a part of the whole that enabled the production to be so successful. It allowed every student to really shine in her role, whether it was in drama, dance, choir, set design, scenery, lighting, costume design, production, and more.”

For many students, Production is the most eagerly anticipated event of the school year and allows students to showcase their talents and passions outside of the classroom. For others, it is a chance to step outside their comfort zone and develop their self-confidence. One senior shared: “I tried out for choir in ninth grade despite viewing myself as not much of a singer. Now four years later, I developed my skills, and I look forward to my role in choir more than anything!” Another senior related how she cultivated strong leadership skills as a dance head.

Parents’ praise was effusive as parents shared how much they appreciate the care and attention the faculty gives to the students which enables them to grow and flourish. Another parent recalled with tears in her eyes a particularly beautiful duet of two students who sang longingly about waiting for Mashiach. “Especially given the current situation in Israel, Bruriah’s Production about caring for each other through life’s ups and downs felt really meaningful.”

Kol hakavod to all of the students and faculty who had a hand in making this year’s production such a showstopping success!
