Students from Berkeley Springs High School are keeping busy after school while learning about ethnic heritage, community, cultural traditions, tolerance, and faith. These lessons are being taught through the Performing Arts department, as the students rehearse for the Broadway musical "Fiddler on the Roof." Though these traditions may not stem from our own West Virginia heritage, the values taught hold true to every small community going through change.
The production of "Fiddler on the Roof" is just a week away. For one weekend only the stage at BSHS, with the help of Brice Williams and the cast, will be transformed into the small Jewish community of Anatevka in Tsarist Russia in 1905.
