Students aim for Broadway in musical with true-life focus

David Mahokey of Dunbar, a senior at Point Park University, and Greg Kerestan of Greensburg, a senior at Seton Hill University, wrote the 20-song score and script, respectively, for ″In Control,″ a musical that focuses in part on Mahokey’s real-life battle with bone cancer.

Two free performances of ″In Control,″ directed by Anthony Marino, artistic director of Stage Right School for the Performing Arts and Professional Theatre Company, will be staged on Friday and Saturday at Greensburg Garden and Civic Center. Mahokey and Kerestan are 2008 graduates of the Stage Right program. — : Students aim for Broadway in musical with true-life focus.

David was the musical director of the preteen musical my daughter was just in, and Greg was a student in my American Literature class. I’m looking forward to seeing their show this weekend.
