Senior Musical Production 2018 - Fiddler on the Roof

3 December 2018 | Tagged: Senior School

The 2018 Senior Musical Production of 'Fiddler on the Roof', saw a cast and chorus of nearly 50 pupils come together to entertain the School community over an excellent four night run in the Senior School Assembly Hall.

Directed and Produced by Senior Deputy Rector, Mr Kenneth Robertson, with Musical Direction from Director of Music, Mrs Sarah Stuart, 'Fiddler on the Roof' saw pupils tell the tale of a poor milkman named Tevye trying to protect his daughters in the colorful and tight-knit Jewish community of Anatevka. Tevye, as played by Kai Ross (S6), alongside his long-suffering wife, Golde, played by Millie Haldane (S6), seeks to instill traditional Jewish values in Tzeitel (Emma Bulloch), Hodel (Pippa Newbery) and Chava (Lucy Goodwin) (all S6) in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Tsarist Russia.

They were joined by a talented supporting cast of almost 40 S4-S6 pupils.

With an orchestra featuring current pupils and staff alongside professional musicians, audiences enjoyed iconic songs from the Tony award winning stage show including “Sunrise, Sunset”, "If I Were A Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”. Well done to S6 pupils, Neve Ferguson and Lucy Goodwin, who choreographed large sequences of the show, alongside learning their lines as 'Yente' and 'Chava', respectively.

The show would not have been such an immersive and enthralling experience without such a hard-working and talented Production team: Stage Crew, led by Mr Colin Price; Light and Sound Crew, guided by Mr Ian Smith; Costumes, led by Mrs Carolyn Bell and Ms Nicola Henderson; Make Up Team, led by Mrs Kim O'Neil and Mrs Mhairi Peek; and Front of House staff, Mr Alan Milligan.
