Mira Costa Set to Debut Classic Musical

Students and staff rehearse the 1964 Broadway hit, "Fiddler on the Roof," before this Friday's opening.

The Mira Costa High School drama department is putting the final touches on "Fiddler on the Roof," a classic musical set in 1905 Russia. Around 130 students are committed to the play about a Jewish community coping with traditions and eviction.

"Its messages, themes and music are still contemporary even to what's happening in our world today," said director and drama instructor Carol Mathews.

"Fiddler on the Roof" features lively numbers, bottle-balancing and plenty of other surprises.

The musical opens this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Mira Costa High School Auditorium, with other performances scheduled for April 21, 26, 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee is also scheduled for April 28 at 2:30 p.m.

Wow! Ron, we can't thank you enough for spending so much time and energy doing interviews, taping the rehearsal scenes and doing such a killer job of editing this wonderful video. Costa is so proud of this show and these kids, and you really captured, in wonderful detail, what the show is all about. What a talented videographer you are! Thanks again.
