On Broadway




                 In the school year, 1956-'57, Allan Segal, then engaged in a budding career as a young Broadway musician, was recruited  by Principal Charles Mosback to become our Musical Director expressly for the purpose of beginning a tradition of quality Broadway musical productions on the stage at OHS annually every spring.

Allan Segal's reaction to this page:
"I feel very proud that I started a tradition that is still going on after 50 years.  I would like to thank the student who did all the work researching."

Jim Cricchio's reaction to this page: "I just want to thank you so much for taking the time to post that up and acknowledging my efforts. I was also touched by Allan Segal's reaction. I'm so glad that I was able to represent him and all that he's done for the future generations of Oceanside High School."
