ST. HELENA DRAMA PRESENTS
‘FIDDLER ON THE ROOF’
St. Helena Drama’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof” opens at 7 p.m. Friday, March 9. Only six performances will be offered: at 7 p.m. March 9-10 and March 16-17 and 2 p.m. Sundays, March 11 and 17. All performances will be at the St. Helena High School Performing Arts Center, 1401 Grayson Ave. Directed by Patti Coyle, the gem from Broadway’s Golden Age of musicals still resonates today with its theme of trying to find balance in a tumultous world — like a fiddler on the roof. Tevye attempts to hold onto his traditions despite sweeping social change that not only upsets his family values but also threatens his town’s very existence.
