The West Bloomfield High School Performing Arts Program will present its spring production of “Fiddler on the Roof” next week at the West Bloomfield High School Auditorium.
Show times are scheduled for Thursday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 29 at 8 p.m., and Saturday, April 30 at 8 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased online until Sunday, April 24 by going to the web site at showtix4u.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the door before the show.
“Fiddler” is set in a small village in 1905 Tsarist Russia, and is based on “Tevye and his Daughters” (or Tevye the Milkman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem.
The story follows Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his struggles to maintain his family and religious traditions amidst outside influences and the persecution of the Jewish people.
Tevye will be played by Chris Brody, while the role of Tevye’s wife, Golde, will be played by Meghan Jolliffe.
The roles of Tevye’s daughters, Tzetiel, Chava, Holdel, Shprintze and Bielke, will be played by Rachel Brett, Erin Hampton, Gabriel Kadian, Erin Ben-Moche and Zoe Yedwab.
Conor Christenson will play Motel Kamzoil, while Jasleen Randhawa will play Fruma-Sarah.
The musical will include Arthur Ebert, director of bands at West Bloomfield High, conducting the band in the pit.
In November, West Bloomfield High School presented its fall production, “Flowers for Algernon,” which was followed up in December by its children’s production, “The Glass Slipper.”
Last January and February, almost 50 West Bloomfield students performed their version of William Shakespeare’s comedy “Twelfth Night” as a dinner-theater fundraiser and as part of the Michigan Interscholastic Forensic Association’s (MIFA) one-act theater district competition.
