This fall’s theatrical production at Greens Farms Academy is “Fiddler on the Roof.”
The lead — Tevye — is played by Ethan Friedson. His sister Shira also acts in the show, and is the fiddler (figure) on the roof.
The Friedson siblings come from a family well known to generations of Westporters. Their grandparents moved to town in 1959. They owned a horse farm on Bayberry Lane, and The Tack Room downtown. Grandmother Bernice also taught music in the schools.
When “Fiddler “opens on November 22 (at the Westport Country Playhouse), their proud grandma won’t be watching from the audience.
Bernice Friedson plays violin in the pit.
