Thursday - Feb. 15, 1973
A Fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? Crazy or not, Davis High's "Fiddler on the Roof" cast and directors are making final preparations for this years production. The opening night performance will be one week from tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Davis High School auditorium.
Kaysville Junior High students will view the musical in a special performance at 12:30 p.m. next Wednesday. Davis' student body will see the production at the same time the following Friday. The final public performance will be the evening of Saturday Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m.
Dress rehearsals with props and orchestra began early this week. The cast has been preparing since December. "I would say this is the hardest musical we've put on since I've been here," said Lorri Warren, who plays Golde. "It's got, probably, one of the largest casts," added Ken Stettler, Tevye.
| "Fiddler on the Roof" is one of Broadways longest running and biggest shows
ever produced. Some said it was "too big for a high school."
Voice director Frank Parker, drama director Joe Graves, and musical staging
specialist Mrs. Clytie Adams are proving differently. The show is not
ready yet, according to Mr. Parker, but it will be on time.
One dancer said that, "the cast's devotion and determination" is helping make the show. "I think it'll be entertaining because of the choreography," said Golde. It's gonna be fantastic!" concluded a cast member.
Admission will be reasonable. All performances will be in the Davis High auditorium.
