Everyone here at MVLCT is bummed out that we are not putting up our summer musical this year. Drowsy Chaperone may be pushed to next summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our past “big” musicals!
The first BIGGIE that we are remembering is our 1989 production of Fiddler on the Roof . Fiddler was our last summer show we put up at Cornell’s Armstrong Theatre (with no air-conditioning).
We had a stellar cast headed by Jay Gunn (Tevye) and Jane Peters (Golde). A true example of what community theatre is all about, Fiddler had a cast and crew of many people from the same families. Fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, brothers and sisters: TRADITION!
