Fiddler on the Roof

The Nicolson Institute was delighted to present the musical Fiddler on the Roof last June, which tells the tale of poor people who suffer from religious and racial persecution and are ultimately forced to flee their homes.  Using music, song and humour to bring life to this serious story, pupils gained insight into the suffering of the Jewish community in Imperial Russia during the pogroms of 1905.

This year the school had scheduled The Wizard of Oz to be performed over three evenings, from 10th to 12th June but sadly these performances had to be postponed due to Covid 19 restrictions. 

To celebrate the achievement of all pupils involved in last year’s musical, the school are releasing this never before viewed video of the full performance of Fiddler on the Roof 2019 on Friday 19th June at 9pm.  The performance will be available to watch on the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar Facebook Page.

The Nicolson Institute would like to thank all pupils and staff involved, and also Andrew Yearly for producing the video.
