HPU presents 'Fiddler on the Roof' thanks to Cannon foundation gift

 

The musical "Fiddler on the Roof" will be presented at Hawai‘i Pacific University, Nov. 7-30, directed by Joyce Maltby. This production of one of Broadway's most beloved works is made possible through funding from the Glenn Cannon Foundation.

 

Cannon, who died last year, was a prominent director, actor and teacher in Hawai‘i, and well known for roles in the original Hawaii Five-O and Magnum P.I. television series.

 

"The Glenn Cannon Foundation was established to preserve Glenn's memory and to carry on his passion for the performing arts by providing support to educational and community theatre," said Samsil Cannon, of her late husband.

Each year, Hawaii Opera Theatre’s education department streamlines a full-length opera into a kid-friendly introduction to the world of classical opera. This year, HOT’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s popular comic operetta, The Pirates of Penzance will light up the Hawaii Theatre stage with one public OHANA! performance on Wednesday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Appropriate for children in grades K-8, the show runs just under an hour, so it won’t be a late night for young audiences.

There will be two school matinee performances, November 5 & 6 at 9:15 a.m.
