ESHS to present Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. Feb. 9-10
The Eureka Springs High School Drama Department will present Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9, and Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Eureka Springs High School auditorium. The Saturday night showing will feature FFA's spaghetti dinner fundraiser, starting at 6 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
This special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye (Austin Maloney) and his five daughters (Makenzie Meyer, Celia Stodden, Savannah Reeves, Megan Elliot and Kierra Witcher). With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.
It costs $10 for adults and $5 for students. No advance ticket purchase is necessary. Eureka Springs School District students are admitted free to the performances. The Saturday night spaghetti dinner costs $5 and includes spaghetti, salad, dessert and a drink.
Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. is presented through a special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials supplied by Music Theatre International. This special ES Tableaux performance is sponsored by Equity Bank of Eureka Springs.
