Rockwall Summer Musicals announces cast for Fiddler On The Roof

June 7, 2017

Rockwall Summer Musicals (RSM) presents Fiddler on the Roof. Set in the little village of Anatevka, Tevye tries to teach his daughters cultural traditions in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences with its humor, warmth, and honesty since debuting on Broadway in 1964. Fan-favorite songs include: “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Where a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker,” and “Tradition.” 

RSM welcomes director Paula Morelan to bring this original production to Rockwall. Paula holds a BFA from Texas Christian University and studied with Nathalia Krassovska, Victor Moreno and Fernando Schaffenburg. Her choreography credits have included working with Lake Placid Center for the Arts (NY), Music Theatre of Wichita (Kansas), WaterTower Theatre, Theatre Three, Lyric Stage (Irving), Garland Summer Musicals, and many shows with Garland Civic Theatre and Children On Stage.  Ms. Morelan has received several Leon Rabin Awards and The Column Awards for Best Choreography. She began her choreography career in 1983 with Garland Civic Theatre and was resident choreographer from 1988 – 2004.  Ms. Morelan is still very active in theatre choreography, teaches Master Classes and workshops throughout the Metroplex. In addition to her choreography credits, she has Co-Produced/Directed “Sweat Box Refugee” Dance Concert since 2013 and Directed/Co-Directed several KD Conservatory Black Box Productions. Ms. Morelan has been with KD Conservatory College of Film and Dramatic Arts (Musical Theatre Dept.) since June 2005.  Additionally, Ms. Morelan is on the Faculty of Tuzer Dancentre and recently been named the Artistic Director of the Irving Ballet School.
