After a hiatus of eleven weeks and five days - not that anyone was counting - rehearsals have finally resumed at Primadonna Productions.

The cast took to the stage again in June to prepare for their upcoming performance of Fiddler on the Roof Junior.

The show, which was originally scheduled for July, will instead take place in September, featuring a team of young people of all ages from between Harvey and Singleton.

Brought to life in conjunction with Music Theatre International, Fiddler on the Roof Junior tells the story of a poor dairyman who tries to instill the traditions of his tightly-knit Jewish community in his five daughters.

Set in the face of the growing antisemitism of Czarist Russia, the traditions of his ancestors are shattered as his daughters assert their independence and government troops brutally force Tevye and his fellow villagers from their homes.

The curtain falls on Tevye's uplifting determination to create another life in the New World.

The show is a student version of the original, multi-award-winning American musical.

Company director Carole Dhu said she was happy to share the positive news and was excited to "move forward".

Fiddler on the Roof Junior will take to the stage at the Pinjarra Civic Centre at 7.30pm on September 11 and 12 with a 2pm matinee performance on September 12.

Tickets are available for $10 cash from Music Force in Greenfields.

Ms Dhu added that the performance was currently operating under level three restrictions.

"This means there are only 90 tickets available per show and no door sales so all seats must be pre-purchased at Music Force," she said.

"It is likely that seats on offer will increase nearer the time, but, for now, to secure your opportunity to enjoy one of the world's best musicals in condensed form, patrons are advised to get into Music Force and purchase their seats while there are some left."
