FHS Drama and Music Departments Present "Fiddler on the Roof"

The FHS Drama Department is hard at work preparing for the upcoming Spring musical, the Broadway classic, Fiddler on the Roof. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters who struggle to balance traditions and desires in a changing world. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
Under the direction of Mindy Reed, the nearly 50 cast members are preparing a show that is both high energy and heart warming. Reed says, “I am so excited about the opportunities that Fiddler offers for our students! There are many featured parts for actors, techies, and musicians, which allows more students the opportunity to shine; plus we get the chance to put a pit orchestra member on stage too! I love giving students the opportunity to work with a classical piece of musical theatre that has messages than resonate with so many people today, regardless of religious background. I sincerely hope the community joins us April 25-28 to celebrate this story and our talented student body!”
Fairfield alumnus Maiya Caldwell has returned to choreograph the musical numbers which are impressive. She has kept true to the traditions of the original Broadway production while bringing a youthful and unique perspective to many of the dance moves. The show is more than 50 years old, but Reed has managed to bring a fresh feeling to the timeless tale.
Tickets are on sale now for $10, by clicking the link below, or will be available at the door for $15. Show times are Thursday, April 25 through Saturday, April 27 at 7:00 PM and Sunday, April 28 at 2:00 PM.
