The newly formed Professional Women’s Theatre presents its debut production, “Shir La Maalote — Elevating the World Through Song and Dance.” The group was created to increase opportunities for Torah-observant women entertainers wishing to perform halachically. The production, which is by women and for women only, is made up of dancers and a diverse line-up of singers who perform in several styles, including opera, Broadway, pop, niggunim (wordless melodies) and tefillot (prayer).

PWT was founded by Adena Kozak. Miriam Leha Droz produced the upcoming show.

Yeshiva University’s Geraldine Schottenstein Cultural Center, 239 E. 34th St.; Feb. 25, 4 p.m., 7:30 p.m.; $30 advance tickets, $36 at the door, $15 for students.
