A Fiddler on the Roof, sounds crazy, no? This weekend, North Penn High School Theatre presented Fiddler on the Roof, a musical about tradition and the change in a Jewish village called Anatevka, located in Russia in 1905. The story of Tevye’s family and friends as their life changes is inspiring, and North Penn Theatre has worked so hard to present this show.

Preparation for Fiddler on the Roof began back in January, and there are about 85 students involved. With 45 actors, 12 members in the tech and set crew, 12 members in the costume crew, 22 musicians in the orchestra, and 12 adults on staff, this musical brought together many talents.

“This has been a wonderful cast and group of people to work with. All of the students have really embraced learning about the traditions and the Jewish background and connecting that. They really worked hard so that all the elements could come together,” said co-director Andrea Roney.

The plot follows Tevye, played by senior Andrew Bozzelli, a father of five daughters who thrives through his traditions and struggles with change. The audience felt laughter, tension, happiness, and sadness for the characters, and the show truly tells a story through song and dance.

The company has performed May 3rd, 4th, and 5th, at 7:30, and today at 2:00 is your last chance. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.

“It’s been a lot of hard work with a lot of amazing people, I’m so excited to do it one more time even better. It’s such an amazing experience,” commented junior Sammi Stec, playing the role of Chava.

“Everyone should come out to see it because I think it’s a really important story historically, and I also think it’s very touching because it’s about people, and connecting with people is important. Even though the ending is not your usual musical finale, it makes us feel inspired and hopeful. None of us know what the future is going to be, so we can learn from their strength,” said Andrea Roney.
