Fiddler on the Roof

25 March, 2012

On the 21st to 23rd March Bowland High produced ‘Fiddler on the Roof ‘ at The Grand in Clitheroe. A cast of almost 50 played to an audience of over 600 across three nights. Tevye, the lead role, was played by Kane Taylor in Year 9. His wonderful performance brought the house down on each night and received a 4 minute standing ovation on the last evening. His wife, Golde, played by Natalie Scott (Year 11), was also exceptionally well received by the audience as were all the other lead characters.

Many of the audience hadn’t seen ‘Fiddler On The Roof ‘before and some commented that they did not know the storyline. By the end of the show on all three evenings rave reviews were being passed around by seemingly all of the audience.

One parent said:

‘This is the strongest amateur show I have ever seen, anywhere’ whilst a member of the public, unconnected to the school, said; “For the great majority of the show i had forgotten i was watching children. It was like watching a professional production ………………. wonderful!”
