Maggie Howell is cast as the oldest daughter Tzietel.
What made you decide to audition for Fiddler on the Roof JR?
I auditioned for Fiddler on the Roof Jr because I have been acting at Parkway Playhouse for 5 years and I love theatre.
Tell us a little bit about your character.
I play Tzeitel and she is the oldest daughter of Tevye and Golde, and the matchmaker is searching for a husband for her, but she’s not really in favor of the matchmaker finding her a husband because she has already fallen in love with someone else.
What do you think the audience will like about Fiddler on the Roof JR?
Although, this is a serious show I think that the audience will like the little bit of humor in Fiddler on the Roof Jr.
What challenges have you encountered with this play?How has that helped your grow as an actor?
When I’m in a show, I am usually singing the lower part in the songs, but in Fiddler I have been put on the higher part which has really been challenging me, but it’s also helping me expand my vocal range a little bit more.
What have you enjoyed most about working on Fiddler on the Roof JR?
I’ve really enjoyed the rehearsals and putting the show all together, and hanging out with the cast has been really fun too.
Come see Maggie perform this weekend!
