FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

Directed by Donna Wresinski

Musical Direction, Pam Wannie; Choreography, Meg Morris

Why Fiddler now? Well first of all it is one of my all time favorite musicals and I want it to be yours as well. It is so relevant. Fiddler is about displaced refugees. Think Somalia, The Ukraine and how we as humans continue to hold onto our traditions through the ravages of war and bigotry. As important now as in 1905. The most beautiful score and characters and scene work we can really dig into!
