Cedar Crest's Production of Leader of the Pack Named One of 10 Best for 2009
Cedar Crest College's production of Leader of the Pack made The Morning Call's top 10 list of local theater performances for 2009. The Cedar Crest production was directed by Clair Freeman and featured senior Michelle Schmidt in the lead role as famed songwriter Ellie Greenwich. Their efforts were lauded by newspaper writer Myra Yellin Outwater, who compiled the list.
Leader of the Pack highlights the life and music of Greenwich, whose hits included "Chapel of Love" "Da Do Ron Ron," "Be My Baby," and the title song, which were recorded by some of the biggest names of the time in music. Freeman returns to the Samuels Theatre stage next month to direct Godspell.
