Preparations for The Wallace High School’s production of Fiddler on the Roof are now well under way, with the show taking place on Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th September.
Over 50 pupils from Years 8 – 14 have been busy in recent months in rehearsals, prop making, poster design and set decoration for what is sure to be a fantastic start to the school year.
Fiddler on the Roof tells the story of the struggle of a Jewish family in maintaining the traditions of their tight – knit community in the Russian dictated village of Anatevka in the early 1900s and as such requires a strong lead cast. With this in mind, Jake Clements (Year 12) and Chloe Webb (Year 13) take the lead roles as Tevye and Golde, both having vast experience of performing on stage.
Teacher in charge of the production Emma Rogers commented: “Wallace has a proud history of putting on excellent school productions and this one should be no different. The pupils have given up a lot of their time to rehearse and to make sure that all goes well behind stage and I would like to commend them for their undoubted dedication.”
The ticket prices for the production are £8 for adults, £5 for children, whilst a family ticket (two adults and two children) can be purchased for £20.
Emma would also like to appeal to local businesses for their support: “We are having a raffle on the last night of the show, as well as an official programme. If you would like to contribute to either then please contact me at school on 02892672311. All support from the local community is as always much appreciated.”
