This week, Madison High School will perform the classic “Fiddler on the Roof.” It is a musical tale set in pre-revolutionary Russia about a peasant father and the match-making journey of his three daughters.  

As a stage production, it is characterized by authentic Russian influence in costume, dance and song. In an interview with Stage Director Robert Hibbard, he described why Fiddler was the choice for Madison High students this year. 

“Fiddler is one of the classics in the musical theater canon…As far as the community goes, Fiddler is (like I said) very, very famous, a mainstay in musical theater, and I think in most any community in Idaho if you were to produce ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ it would be wildly popular,” Hibbard said. 

The performances will be held in the Madison High School Performing Arts Center Nov. 11 –Nov. 13 and on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. Masks are not required. Admission is $4 for students and $6 for adults. Tickets are available online through their website. For those unable to attend in person, the play will also be streamed on closing night using the same link.
