Georgia’s only theatrical company featuring actors with special needs, directed and produced by professionals, will present its 24th production, “The Wizard of Oz” March 9 - 19. All Habima productions are held at the MJCCA’s Morris & Rae Frank Theatre, 5342 Tilly Mill Road.
Mona Shuman and Rachel Fox Weitz will co-chair Jerry’s Habima Theatre’s 24th anniversary production.
“The participants of this unique theater company achieve new levels of self-confidence from this remarkable experience,” continued Weitz. “I am certain that this delightful, family-friendly performance of Wizard of Oz will inspire and entertain each and every Habima Theatre-goer.”
This year, the MJCCA will also honor Susie Davidow for her outstanding 16 years as Director of the MJCCA’s Blonder Family Department for Special Needs. Davidow plans to retire this year.
“I am so appreciative to the MJCCA leadership and to the Blonder family for embracing me, and I am grateful to the participants for always giving me their unconditional love,” said Davidow. “I can’t wait to see them shine in this year’s Habima production; my last as the director of the department.”
