This Homecoming, Siena Heights and the local community will have raised a glass to a toast of “L’Chaim” after the production of “Fiddler on the Roof” came to the Deborah F. Haller Stage from Oct. 4-6. The play focuses on a Jewish community in early 19th century Russia and the internal and external struggles they face.

After discussing the production with some members of the cast and crew, it was clear to see that a lot of love and passion went into the production. In fact, the love of the story is one of the main points that director Mark DiPietro tried to specifically emphasize in his directing process. He specifically cited the love between the play’s main mother and father, Golde and Tenya, as a main love interest he wanted to embrace.

Jordan Hayes-Devloo, who plays Perchik, said his character, “is a rebellious student” and “a radical Marxist.” Hayes-Devloo said he prefers to view the production as a testament to “traditions, and how the world can and does change around them.”

I also saw a lot of tradition and passion in my investigation of the play’s production. From wonderfully crafted props, to a very talented and passionate cast and crew, Theatre Siena’s “Fiddler on the Roof” was bound to be a tradition no one will forget.
