Fiddler On The Roof

I haven’t written much lately as things have been very busy, but hope to catch up a bit. NBHS’s production of Fiddler was thoroughly enjoyable. It’s a very interesting musical in each half of the show ends on a sour note: (1) the wrecking of a wedding by local police (2) the entire population begin turfed out of their beloved Anatevka. Somehow, this doesn’t detract from the joy of watching pupils excel. I was impressed not only by those on stage but also by the pupils in the band, who coped magnificently with a tough challenge. I couldn’t have coped with that at their age. I would imagine that for the two lead characters, this experience will be one of the most memorable of their lives.
