The 2023/24 Theater Season focuses on the connections we all share, the human experience that we all have in common, and the ways that all types of love can move people to unbelievable kindness. Both shows this season are testaments to how love can conquer, and how family can support one another through hardships and successes. The junior show in the Fall is for children ages 8yrs old through 17yrs old or 18yr old High School seniors. The Spring production will be a community production that includes individuals ages 10yrs and up. All adults are welcome to join us at auditions and come be a part of the historic and beautiful telling of the Fiddler on the Roof!
Once on this Island Jr.
(Fall 2023 - 8yr through HS senior)
With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty.
Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island, guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred, and even death.
Fiddler On The Roof
(Spring 2024 - 10yrs and up)
Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends, Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; songwriters, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick; and book writer, Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth, and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon.
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, his wife, and their five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality, and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy, and sadness.
