Fiddler on the Roof a "must see"

I just got back from watching a wonderful performance of Fiddler on the Roof.

The kids in this town are so talented!

The acting and singing were superb! The set was incredibly well-done, the lighting and special effects fabulous, the costumes and the music from the orchestra in the pit were all tremendous!!

The audience was full of lots of familiar faces from around the community - occasionally as we enjoyed the show, we forgot that we were watching a high school performance.

The Barnstable High School drama club is an institution that has been held together by the talent and dedication of John Sullivan. The performances bring together the time and talent from around the halls of the school. The art work, engineering and design that goes into sets and set manipulation, the musical talents of musicians who play throughout the performance from the lowered pit in front of the stage, the technical talents of the kids who manipulate the sound and lighting boards, design and create costumes, design and do makeup, dance choreography, and what I used to call when I was in high school drama- set and prop choreography, the advertising,the design and printing of posters and programs, the selling of tickets, the kitchen set up to sell food, and the ushers….. and there is much more…. so many of our talented students and dedicated adults work together to make these shows something we are so proud to call our own here in Barnstable.

Those of us who participated in the effort to win the All America City Award learned first hand of the experience John Sullivan and his side kick, Shakespeare extraordinaire Ed O’Toole share with their students.

This is a wonderful way to spend and afternoon or evening with family and friends during this holiday week.

And, new this year is a partnership with Cape Cod Hospital Auxillary - this partnership will help both the drama club and the effort to raise money for the hospital’s cardio-care facility.

Please come out and catch a show before it wraps up!

Congratulations to all on a job well done.
These students at BHS are so lucky to have these opportunities. It is like being on a winning team in sports. I was in this program over ten years ago and it has meant so much to me, and helped make me who I am today.
