The cast of River Bluff Middle Schools
Fiddler on the Roof honored Tradition
while also breaking quite a few during
their version of the famous musical March

Fiddler on the Roof follows Tevye
(Laura Perry), a Jewish milkman who finds
humor and joy in life despite the challenges
of marrying off his five daughters and perse-
cution that eventually forces his family out
of their village. The production, directed by
Don Walden, featured many familiar musi-
cal numbers from the original, including If
