Director/choreographer Adriana Pierce studied at the famed School of American Ballet in New York; she apprenticed with New York City Ballet and danced for seven seasons with Miami City Ballet. A Fellow of the Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU and an alumna of the New York Choreographic Institute at Lincoln Center, she most recently
appeared on Broadway in Carousel.
The beloved 1964 musical Fiddler on the Roof, while delightfully entertaining, addresses very serious themes that are important for the young people to think about. As Tevye, the main character, faces changes in society and spectres of violent antisemitism, he clings to his living faith and tries to preserve his family traditions as best he can.
