Great tunes and drama in Fiddler By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Raising the roof: Vrnda Lyall as Hodel, Forrest Denize as Chava and Vashity Stewart as Tzeitel, the three oldest daughters of Tevye, in the Waiheke Choral Society production of Fiddler on the Roof. Waiheke Choral Society mem- bers will be singing the roof off at the end of the month with the launch of their version of Fid- dler on the Roof. The stage musical includes well-known tunes like If I were a Rich Man, and Matchmaker. A diverse cast of Waiheke personalities are planning to entertain, including Andy Spence as Tevye, Seth Tetley- Jones as Motel Kamzoil, the vil- lage tailor, and Bernard Rhodes as the Rabbi. Cast member Stefan Kesting says like all great works of art, the play deals with the univer- sal problem of the human con- dition. Andy Spence, as the protag- onist, explains the metaphor of the fiddler on the roof at the beginning of the play. The fiddler illustrates a pre- carious state of affairs, a life of unexpected, sudden turns and tosses. It is set in a small Jewish community living in Russia in 1905. The historical context is a time of turmoil for Russia on the brink of revolution. Acts of genocide were beginning to occur throughout Russia and many people were killed, dis- placed and lived in poverty. The popular West End pro- duction by Joseph Stein was written in the early 1960s but its context for Jewish people and viewers worldwide has been far reaching. Andy says Fiddler was chosen for its popularity and because it includes adults and children. It has also been an interes- ting historical exercise for all of us to come to terms with what happened at the time. The musical had the longest run on Broadway ever. Andy says: I hope locals will love the colourful Chagal-style backdrop, painted by Colin Beardon and the colourful characters in the show. Fiddler on the Roof premieres at the Artworks Community Theatre on July 29 at 7pm and runs for two weekends. Lovely home open for violinist's fundraiser Sneak peek: Ticket purchasers will get a look inside the Pie Melon Bay home of Bruce Plested. The Pie Melon Bay home of Mainfreight founder Bruce Ple- sted will be open to ticket- holders for a fundraising con- cert by local violinist Jessica Alloway on July 23. Waiheke Youth Music Trust board member Alan Smythe is organising the event to raise money for a violin better suited to her future . He says Jessica, who is a multiple award winner, is off to Europe later in the year to further her studies and she needs a higher quality instru- ment than that which she has owned since childhood. More than half of the 100 tickets have been sold at $100 each, so it looks like a sellout, Mr Smythe says. It s a double bill really -- the wonderful music of Jessica and Bruce Plested s lovely estate. Tickets include champagne and finger food. Call Robin Fraser on 372-6394, Rob Nichol- son on 021-706-639, Alan Smythe on 372-9804 or contact the Waiheke Community Art Gallery. Many styles in gallery members own show Exhibit: Part of the popular Members Show -- Katie Trinkle Legge's Pears in the Studio. Opening this week at the Waiheke Com- munity Art Gallery is the ever popular Mem- bers Show and a glass invitational exhibition entitled Nature vs Nur- ture. The Members Show which offers all finan- cial members of the gallery society the op- portunity to exhibit without entry fees, is always one of the largest shows of the year. The exhibition pro- files the work of local artists and promises a wide range of styles and media. Visitors can expect to see paintings, works on paper, sculp- ture, glass, ceramics, photography textiles and jewellery. This year visitors can also vote for a People s Choice with the winning artist receiving two bottles of Kennedy Pt wine. Nature vs Nurture in the small gallery has been curated by Auck- land glass artist Christine Cathie and proposes a more literal take on the old debate of Nature versus Nur- ture -- where nature is the physical environ- ment around us, of landscape weather, flora and fauna, and Nuture, emotion, the nurturing of the artists and their particular own environment. Exhibiting artists include Ann Robinson, Isaac Katzoff, Steve Bradbourne, Elizabeth McClure, Karin Barr, Robyn Irwin and Chris Cathie. The exhibitions open on Friday and run to Monday, August 8. Music man set to play Oneroa Live at Vino Vino: Musician Pat Urlich is performing live at Vino Vino on Friday nights. Punters can catch the singer-songwriter at the Oneroa venue from 6pm. Bookings are recommended -- phone 372-9888.
