The local theater group will present “Fiddler on the Roof” on 14 dates in July at the Forest Lake High School Theater Auditorium, 6101 Scandia Trail N. (TH-97). The 2012 show will debut on Friday, July 6.

“Fiddler on the Roof” became the Masquers signature stage production in its first year, 1977. Masquers capped its first summer season with the popular musical as its third and final show which played before packed houses at the high school.

The July production will mark the third time Masquers has produced “Fiddler.” The show was reprised in 1991 and returns again in 2012.

Janice Roman will direct the summer production. Brenda Brown is music director with Jenessa Wasilk the choreographer.
