For the first time since November of 2019, the tradition of 8th-grade play week returned! During this signature Tatnall experience, students do everything from building and painting the set, blocking the choreography, designing the marketing and publicity, selecting costumes and make-up… oh, and learning their lines and lyrics all in ten days.
This year, students put on a production of Fiddler on the Roof Jr. on Monday, November 22 on the stage of the Laird Performing Arts Center. Based on the award-winning, iconic Broadway classic of life in Czarist Russia, this universal drama is a true musical theatre tradition and a delightful introduction to the world of musicals.
Lower School and Middle School students were treated to a wonderful matinee that went off without a hitch and had students nodding to the catchy tunes while fully embracing the humor, warmth, and honesty provided by the performance. The curtain went up that evening for a COVID-friendly family production.
