Handley Theatre to perform ‘Fiddler on the Roof’

This Thursday and Friday the Handley Theatre department will be performing a beloved Broadway Musical : Fiddler on the Roof. The story is set in a small village in Russian around 1905. It tells the story of Tevye- the village milkman who is “blessed” with a wife and five daughters. The musical moves through the love and lives of the family as several of the daughters begin to find husbands and Tevye and his wife Golde examine their own marriage. All of this set against the restless political background of the times. It contains sections which are tremendously funny as well as very poignant, all accompanied by an incredible music score with such songs as “Tradition”, If I Were a Rich Man “ and “Far From the Home I Love” and many more.

The musical represents the 19’th Broadway show produced and directed by Steve and Kathy Murphy in the past 16 years. It is the 37’th show in total for the same time period. The production includes the Theatre Class form Second Trimester as well as the Handley Harmonics (an all girl chorus form the high school led my Kathy Murphy) and a dozen students from the Middle School. Bringing the total number of students involved to 32.

You will not want to miss this incredible, timeless musical. Doors open at 6:00 PM with the action starting at 7:00. There is a $5 charge at the door. Please make plans to be there!
