Question, “WHAT ARE YOU A SLAVE TO?” The cast of Freedom Song is not a cast of actors; they are
actual addicts in recovery that have broken off the shackles of drugs, alcohol, gambling, and other
destructive behaviors. By performing in Freedom Song, our interchanging cast members have an
opportunity to answer questions from the audience and to share their experiences on how best to
recover from a lifestyle of addiction. Using song and dance, tears and laughter, and an intense post
show discussion with our cast, Freedom Song will open your eyes to the real life struggle against the
‘bondage of self’ that we all fi ght every day.
Beit Teshuvah is a Jewish rehabilitation center for individuals struggling with substance abuse
and other addictions. Beit Teshuvah is founded on authenticity and wholeness, and integrates
spirituality, psychotherapy, Jewish teachings, the 12 Steps, and the creative arts. We have an
opportunity to experience their stories, teaching, and inspirational music throughout the weekend.
