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.
This morning saw the band call for North Berwick High School’s forthcoming production of Fiddler On The Roof (music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein). By the time this pic of the band was taken
our drummer, debonair Dave Swanson, hungry for CPD as ever, had raced off to a drum clinic by Omar Hakim.
The show runs from Thu 18 – Sat 20 at 19:30 in North Berwick High School. Tickets are available on the door but, to avoid disappointment, you can call the school on 01620 894661, reserve tickets and pay on the night.
