It’s one of the greatest and most loved musicals of all time, capturing the hearts and imagination of audiences around the world – and it’s coming back to Sydney’s Moriah College in 2018, for the first time in close to three decades.

The College is renowned for staging spectacular musicals that showcase and embrace the participation of talented musicians, vocalists and actors from throughout the whole community and this one will be no different, with the call for auditions reaching right across the country.

Rehearsals are scheduled over many months and the level of professionalism, attention to detail, effort, and resources employed result in a program of unrivalled performances. In fact, Moriah’s shows are staged on such a large scale that it’s been 13 years since the most recent musical, the highly acclaimed 2004 production of West Side Story.

Driven by indefatigable Director of Music and Co-curricular, Roberta Goot, this production of Fiddler on the Roof promises to be a breathtaking theatrical experience and the perfect event to include as part of the school’s 75th Anniversary celebrations.

‘Fiddler is the perfect choice’, Roberta Goot explains. ‘It is a beautifully crafted musical. Every song is memorable. It is steeped in ‘traditions’ as we are at Moriah. There are two whole generations of students who probably do not know the story and have not heard the music so we felt it was time to bring it back ‘to life’ at Moriah. It has been 24 years since we last did it!’

Auditions for all roles and chorus for the 2018 Moriah College production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ will be held on:

Sunday, 23 July 2017 and Sunday, 6 August 2017 – 9:00am-1:00pm.
Registration forms will be available on the day. Prepared audition pieces are not required
