A few weeks ago we drove to the small town of Moorefield, WV, to attend "Fiddler on the Roof" at McCoy's Grand Theatre in Moorefield, WV. What a joy to watch! "Fiddler" has always been one of my favorite musicals, evoking both joy and tears. And this performance was no difference.
I am writing this to urge you to visit Moorefield next weekend and spend an enjoyable evening or afternoon with this talented group of people. "Fiddler on the Roof" was directed by Keith Miller, Choreographed by Kirsten Barr, and the Music Director was Heather Thorne. It is a very powerful story of Tevye and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish traditions, in spite of his oldest daughters' strong wills and the edict of the tsar to leave their village. I love how Tevye is constantly talking to God! The castmembers, lead by Heath Hershberger as Tevye,were a delight! Heath's voice and acting talent set the tone for the show! There are so many talented people in this show - I could go on and on. The scenes of Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava as they go against their father's wishes brought tears to my eyes.
McCoys is an easy 2 hour drive from the DC Metro area. There are three more performances of this timeless play: July 27th and 28th at 7pm and July 29th at 2pm. You will not be disappointed. If you plan on going to one of the evening shows and would like to stay overnight, we always stay at the Southbranch Inn in Moorefield.
