Fiddler Costumes: Children participating in Fiddler On the Roof will need to supply their own costume. My best advice to you is to hit a second hand store and plan to spend some time there. There is a large Amvets out in West Seneca across from the Home Depot Plaza, it is a gold mine. Last year, one of our Music Man parents picked up a complete costume there last year (including hat) for under $10. I will be supplying certain costume pieces and will let individuals know as needed. ALL Musical Members will need a LARGE REUSUABLE OR FABRIC BAG with their name CLEARY PRINTED ON IT. Please, please, please do NOT send any plastic of breakable bags. We need to store 50+ costumes in a small area , costumes need to be secure in a quality bag. EVERY CAST MEMBER WILL NEED A BATTERY OPERATED CANDLE. PLEASE CHOOSE A CANDLE THAT CAN EASILY TURN ON. IF YOU BUY A CANDLE AT THE DOLLAR STORE, YOU MAY WANT TO BUY SEVERAL. IN OUR EXPERIENCE, CHEAPER CANDLE WILL BREAK BY SHOWTIME. ALL GIRLS – The costume for town girls/ women is very similar. My Fiddler book suggests looking at pictures on line. The people of Anatevka are poor working class people. Girls might consider ballet flats for shoes or shoe type boots. Colors will not be bright. All heads will need to be covered so scarves will be essential. Our show takes place in 1905. Girls and women will also need a small basket with a handle that they could easily carry through scenes. All Boys- All town men and boys should have on a shirt (long sleeve) and pants and dark shoes. If you are dual cast as a Russian soldier, constable or the Rabbi, please wear either dark blue or black pants. Vests are a great accompaniment to an outfit and highly suggested. Again, I have found many incredible vests in the women’s section of the second hand stores. Sometimes they fit the smaller boys better and don’t need much tweaking. All heads will need to be covered. Please check out the hats from the Fiddle movie on line. The ‘newsboy’ type hat will work. Costumes really do not need to match, the only exception to this might be Lazar Wolf. Lazar is a slightly wealthy town man and his outfit may reflect this. Please email Mrs. Darling if you have any questions about costumes.
