Students from William B. Mann Elementary School in Wynnefield and the nonprofit Wolf Performing Arts Center (Wolf PAC) perform in the children’s musical, “On the Other Side of the Fence,” a production that teaches children that friendships can be achieved when people take down the “fences” that threaten to separate them. Written by local playwright and composer Andrea Green Feigenbaum, the play was staged May 12 and 13 at Mann.
