WOW! Fabulous Production By Parish Players - April 2013
Steve OlszewskiLimited tickets for Saturday evening show, please call ahead to order, 465-5574
By Jodi Robinson...I went to see the Parish Players production of "Fiddler on the Roof" last night and was blown away by the professionalism of the show. Steve Olszewski was born to play the part of "Papa", and brought tears to most eyes a couple of times during the show. The entire cast had strong performances and vocals, with some in the "holy cow that was great" range. The orchestra, with less then a dozen players was awesome. The sound and light equipment went off with out a glitch. The Parish Players know what they are doing and we are blessed to have them in our community. Kudos to Director Maura Rustowicz!
