Meet The Eisners
Further developing their skills as singing-dancing-acting “triple threats,” sisters Rachel (pictured at left) and Mara Eisner (pictured at right) are now in rehearsals for the Teenage Drama Workshop’s upcoming production of “The Wiz.” Both girls appeared in last year’s production of “High School Musical.” This year, Rachel, who is returning to TADW for her 5th summer, is the dance captain for “The Wiz,” working side-by-side with choreographer Candy Sherwin to teach the cast the complex moves for songs like “Ease on Down the Road” and “A Brand New Day.” Rachel, 17, attends Royal High School in Simi Valley. Younger sister Mara, 13, is in her 2nd year at TADW and is in the ensemble for “The Wiz.” She attends Sinaloa Middle School. For tickets to The Wiz, visit www.csun.edu/tadw.
