Two Faces of Fiddler

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — admin @ 3:33 pm

Last night was the first dress rehearsal of Fiddler on the Roof,  on stage for the first time at the Sottile Theatre.  Our technical staff had less the 36 hours to move all of the sets and over a 100 costumes backstage to get ready for this important rehearsal.  (Because Charleston’s theatres are used for so many events,  we only have a few days to rehearse on stage before a show opens, so its a very hectic time. )Rehearsal went well and I snapped the photo below of two of the actors who I think represent so much of what Charleston Stage does well.  Here are two great performers,  one a professional actor (John O. Fennel as Tevya) and the other a talented young musician  (Nicholas Bentz) working side by side by side. Charleston Stage strives for the best in professionalism but keeps a door open for the next generationof performers as well.  We think there is great value in having young performers work with seasoned professionals.  John, himself began as a young performer with Charleston Stage and Nicholas’s older brother Andrew, now a PHD candidate at Duke,  performed with Charleston Stage as well.  dsc_0054.jpg
