“We are so excited about the opportunity to produce this musical as one of our significant cultural arts events for the Jewish community Wedner explained. We have attracted great local talent, and the evening will be filled with heartwarming songs, funny & reflective moments, everything you want to experience at a good night in the theater,”.
‘From Generation to Generation’ will be directed by Mik Cribben,a New York feature film director. The musical director is Melissa Boher Jacobson and the show will be choreographed by Rhona Ross and Mary Cook.

The musical has been performed in Chicago, Los Angeles, St. Louis and Omaha to standing ovations. The Chicago Tribune review said,“From Generation to Generation is about things that matter most in life – faith, traditionand family.” The Omaha World-Herald adds, “This is a first-rate family show that Jewish theatergoers will especially enjoy – though everyone will respond to the universal themes celebrated here.”
