Last week, staff and students at Pontiac High School (PHS) performed an enthralling take on the 1960s classic Fiddler on the Roof for three sold-out shows.
Running from May 9 to 11, more than 40 staff and students took part in various capacities, resulting in a charming production that elicited much laughter and applause from hundreds of attendees.
The plot follows the tribulations of a poor Jewish milkman and his family in early twentieth century Russia. Originally released in 1964, it won nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, and became one of the longest-running musicals in Broadway history.
