Laconia Christian Academy presents ‘Fiddler’

MEREDITH — Laconia Christian Academy are presenting performances of "Fiddler on the Roof" on Friday-Sunday, May 22-24 at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse.

The story chronicles the life of Tevye, a poor Russian Jewish dairyman at the turn of the century trying to cope with the changing world around him, while clinging to his beloved traditions. All the while raising five daughters who are influenced by the changing culture. Ultimately the Russians view of the Jews affects him and his whole village.

The student performers shared their thanks toward their director Jen Bleiler, stating that she has worked very hard to bring each character to life in each actor, working individually and in groups, and has devoted so much time and energy to each segment of the musical.

"Working with students and amateur actors is challenging, but so rewarding," says Bleiler. "I can't wait to see this cast in action for the public!"

Bleiler took several steps to bring each character home to the actors. She's coached them in researching their characters so as to get to know them intimately in an effort to portray them accurately. She also arranged for Glenna Lee, director of education at Temple B'Nai Israel, and several other temple members to come and teach on many Jewish customs and traditions. The cast learned about many practices and sayings that are in the production, making it sensible to them.

Tickets should be purchased in advance at winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org or by calling the box office at (603) 279-0333 . Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students.
