Fiddler was a grand experience

Can you remember where you spent your very best $10? I can!

To the Readers of the Omineca Express:

Can you remember where you spent your very best $10?  I can!

My husband and I had the privilege of sitting in the audience at the NVSS for the second performance of “Fiddler on the Roof”  last Friday evening and we were absolutely astounded at the level of professionalism by all of the cast members.  The best $10 I’ve ever spent!!!

Years ago (back-in-the-day) we attended a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Her Majesty’s Theatre in London, England and indeed it was exceptional.  What with all the qlitz and glamour of a huge theatre, known world wide, we were so impressed!!  However, the acting and music there did not draw us into the story as did the Vanderhoof Community Theatre Society and the NVSS Drama.  Sitting in the audience, you were so heavy-hearted for Tevye as the “traditions” started to be eroded.  Again you were drawn into the heartache and sorrow felt by the villagers as they prepared to leave the only home they had ever known!  An absolutely delightful evening!!!  Thank you so much!

We’ll be waiting for your next production!!
