Lovejoy Performing Arts Presents: Fiddler on the Roof

A classic timeless journey of love, loss, faith, and family.

LUCAS,Fiddler on the Roof TEXAS –

The tradition of great musicals continues at Lovejoy High School with this year’s family- friendly performance of Fiddler on the Roof. The show will be presented January 19 – 21, 2017 at 7 pm.

Set in the small Russian town of Anatevka in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof tells a story of faith, family, and tradition. Tevye (played by senior, Trace Glorioso) tries to preserve his family’s traditions in a changing world. He is forced to choose between maintaining his Jewish culture and the happiness of his three eldest daughters Tzeitel (sophomore, Adelyn Maruca), Hodel (senior, Zoe Kahana), and Chava (junior, Renae Haas).

From laughter-inducing lines to memorable music, Fiddler on the Roof is a show for everyone featuring characters that audiences will fall in love with, such as Tevye’s endearingly feisty wife, Golde (senior, Rachel Bradley) the local matchmaker, Yente (senior, Abby Yaeger), the village butcher Lazar Wolfe (junior, Vinny Horlock), and the poor lovestruck tailor Motel (junior, Ryan Hyde).

The show offers iconic and beloved songs such as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “Tradition,” and “Sunrise, Sunset,” making it a perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for students, faculty, and seniors. They can be purchased at our online box office at: http://tinyurl.com/LovejoyFiddlerTickets  starting January 10, 2017.

Fiddler on the Roof is a heartfelt, moving musical that you and your loved ones will enjoy, so journey down to the Lovejoy High School Auditorium at: 2350 Estates Parkway, Lucas, Texas.

Meals will be available for the cast and crew, Monday, January 16th through Friday, January 20th. All meals will include water, veggies/fruit and a small dessert. We do this since the student performers don’t have a lot of time after school before the rehearsal, or show and are STARVING!

Thank you to all who auditioned and shared your talent with us! We were so proud of your character in auditions and in the holding area!

 

Remember being cast or not cast is not a reflection on your talent or if we like you as a person. Casting is a complex process that involves many variables including but is not limited to: number of characters written, body type, vocal type, scheduling, chemistry, and director vision. And, at the end of the audition process, we have to make a decision. We wish we could cast everyone, since we all care so much about each and every one of you and your growth.

 

If you were not selected to be a part of the cast, please do not be discouraged, there are many ways to still be involved in our program, just come and ask us! : )

 

No matter what the outcome, we encourage you to receive feedback on your audition 48 hours after the cast list is posted.

 

Crew list will be posted next week.

 

If you were cast, our first read through is Monday at 4:30, and will end at 6. Please bring a pencil and a snack.

 

A REQUIRED PARENT MEETING will be held this Thursday at 6 PM. in F105. You are responsible for notifying your parent. If your parent cannot make it, they must call me to make arrangements to get caught up on the information presented.

 

Thank you all so much for making our theatre a great place to make art. <3

Seussical Tickets – On Sale Now

Oh, the thinks you can think! Join the Cat in the Hat and all your favorite characters on a whirlwind ride through the fantastic tales of Dr. Seuss. Come celebrate Lovejoy High School’s 10th anniversary performance of Seussical, The Musical, a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Together, we’ll journey from the Jungle of Nool, to the Circus McGurkus, to the invisible world of the Whos; it’s sure to be a joy for everyone, from the “tallest of tall to the smallest of small”!
The Cat in the Hat (Senior, Jeremiah “Jak” Barth) tells the story of Horton (Junior, Trace Glorioso), an elephant who discovers a speck of dust, the home to dozens of tiny Whos, including Jojo (Sophomore, Lindsay Haden), a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but also guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Sophomore, Raegan Vaughn). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Senior, Caroline Vitanza) never loses faith in him. Throughout these colorful adventures, the powers of friendship, loyalty, and family emerge triumphant.
Seussical, The Musical is fun for the whole family! Seussical, The Musical will be performed in the Lovejoy High School Auditorium, Thursday, January 21st, through Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 at 7 pm. Tickets are $12 for students, staff, and seniors, and $16 for adults. Tickets go on sale at: http://tinyurl.com/Seussical2016 on Monday, January 11th at 9 am, or can be bought at the box office the week of the show, or at the door the night of the show if tickets are still available.
