BELOIT - Over 30 local children will soon be taking on the classic musical "Fiddler on the Roof."

Members of Kids Fun and Drama (KFAD) have been preparing for the show for weeks, learning their lines, choreography and singing skills.

"I like this show because it has a lot of really cool songs and choreography," said Maia Jones, 13, of Beloit, who plays Golde. "We've really been working hard."

Set in the village of Anatevka, the story of "Fiddler on the Roof Jr." centers around a dairyman named Tevye and his five daughters.

Tevye is well-respected in the village and is steadfast in his belief that tradition and embracing Jewish heritage, is very important in one's life.

When it comes time for his daughters to be married, he has set expectations. But the process of making a match doesn't go according to plan.

As Tevye's daughters make it known they wish to marry for love, the unrest of the outside world also begins to have an influence on the village.

"He's kind of a disgruntled father who wants his daughters to follow how things have been," said Jacob Paul, 18, of Beloit, who plays Tevye.

Paul, who is home-schooled, said that the story of "Fiddler on the Roof Jr." is intriguing and he has enjoyed being a part of KFAD.

"Ive really learned a lot about teamwork and am looking forward to having an audience watching us," he said.

Jones, a Fruzen Intermediate school student, has performed with KFAD before.

She that "Fiddler on the Roof Jr." is very different from other productions because it has challenging themes.

"We hope to see a lot of people at the show because it's going to be really enjoyable and it's a great story," she said.

"Fiddler on the Roof Jr." will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Head Start Theatre, 1221 Henry Ave.

General admission tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults. For more information, 'Like' Kids Fun and Drama on Facebook.
