"The cast has been rehearsing three to four times a week and the musical numbers, especially for the guys, require great athleticism, so we continue to drill and practice," said Matthew Farina, Director. He noted that the cast and production crew of over 60 students have put together outstanding costumes and set designs to create the village of Anatevka, the setting of the story. IHS students created the posters, playbook and lobby designs as well.

"Fiddler on the Roof is a full-family affair with elaborate set and scenic design, lobby design and costuming," said Aislinn Gavin, Producer. "Cast members, alumni and parents are vital to the production process and step up to the plate, absolutely transforming the gym from a basketball court to a Broadway-quality theater," she noted.

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical (music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein) set in the Pale of Settlement of Imperial Russia in 1905. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his orthodox Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters -- who wish to marry for love while each one's choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
