Announcing auditions for Home and Community Options


Fri, Mar 8th, 2013
Posted in All Arts & Culture

Home and Community Options of Winona is pleased to announce that Fiddler on the Roof has been selected as its 2013 summer musical production.

Written by Joseph Stein with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler on the Roof is the story of Tevye, a poor dairy man from the little village of Anatevka, who tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Well known songs include “Matchmaker,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”

This year’s production will be under the artistic direction of Mark Roeckers with musical direction by Dr. Harry Mechell. The performances will take place from June 13 through June 18th at Saint Mary’s University Page Theatre, in Winona.

Auditions will be held at Wesley Methodist Church, 114 West Broadway in Winona on Saturday, April 13, from 10:30am to 12:30pm and Sunday, April 14, from 2:00-4:00pm. Anyone interested in auditioning is asked to prepare a song - not from Fiddler on the Roof - and bring the sheet music to the audition. There will be roles for approximately 60 people for this production including about 15 roles for children 16 and under. The minimum age for cast members will be eight years old.

Money raised by this event will help support Home and Community Options’ mission of serving children and adults with development disabilities who are in need of residential and support services in order to live happily in the community.

For further information please contact Dennis Theede at 452-1021, extension 9526 or visit www.hco.org.
