This year the St Patrick’s College Production will be Fiddler on the Roof.
The show will involve students from St Pat’s, St Mary’s, St Catherine’s, Wellington East Girls’ and Marsden Karori.
Written and composed by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick Fiddler on the Roof is one of the most beloved Broadway shows of all time and the winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical. Set in Russia in the late 19th century, the musical tells the story of Tevye, a poor milkman, trying to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives. The plot revolves around Tevye’s attempt to marry off his five daughters to wealthy husbands and their resistance to this idea.
The show will run in the school hall from Monday 3rd of August to Thursday 6th August.
Auditions will be held in the St Pat’s Music Room from 4:30pm on following dates.
