Fleetwood Students Attend “Fiddler On The Roof” in NYC

Posted on November 8, 2016 by


Each year, the Fleetwood choral and theater program offers a trip to New York City to see a show on Broadway. This year’s performance was Fiddler on the Roof. This spectacular show was a great opportunity to show the theater students a professional musical before they perform their own for the school. Students attended a workshop and had time to explore the city before and after the show.

During the workshop, everyone was split into two groups. One group was in one room, the other group was in the other room. Each instructor took the students through a series of warm-up exercises and group acting activities. It was a good way to bond with one another. Even if a student didn’t know someone, he or she still was involved and able to know their peers.

After the exercises and activities, all the students were combined into one room, and they were able to talk and question one of the Broadway actors in Fiddler on the Roof. His main lesson was to accept failure because nobody is perfect and not everything works out for everyone. He also talked about confidence and being yourself, which really hit home for some people.

“Seeing him perform in the show was a phenomenal experience, and knowing we met him was pretty cool,” senior Elizabeth Horinka said.
