NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Thanks for making "Fiddler" a success!
Many heartfelt thanks go to the great cast, production team, orchestra and quiet backstage helpers of Cottonwood Heights’ recent production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” More than 50 people gave countless hours of unpaid service to create a successful cultural event for the community.
The actors ranged in age from nine years old to 60-plus, and their skill levels varied from first-time amateurs such as Hunter Hogan and Brooklyn Allen to veteran actors such as the Jason Wadsworth family and Becky Henriksen. Music director Christi Jones and Choreographer Brittnie Bruin taught the cast how to hit each note and count each step. Accompanied by Cottonwood Heights’ very own community orchestra directed by Shaun Davis, the production shone.
Joey Hogan and Bob Ithurralde built and embellished the simple yet effective set while lighting guru David Aird and sound technician Ryan Pedersen creatively brought the play to life. And we can’t forget the fantastic beards created by makeup artist Mike Porter as well as all the behind-the-scenes volunteers who made the play run smoothly.
Finally, we must thank the many people from Cottonwood Heights and beyond who attended the performances and supported the efforts of the Cottonwood Heights Arts Council. You are the reason we do what we do!
What makes our community theater successful? In the words of the song Anatevka, “A little bit of this, a little bit of that” stirred up with love and hard work from our community members!
Questions about the art show should be directed to Bob Ithurralde at 801-942-3328.
