Numbers, Numbers...
There are/were actually four productions of Fiddler on the Roof in the Inland Empire. In addition to the one in which I participated, the other productions are/were in Upland (Grove Theater), Rialto, and Chaffey High School in Ontario.

Here's a quote from the Daily Bulletin's 3/11/2004 article about the Grove production:

The director, who also directed "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at the Grove, said one of the challenges he faced for this nearly two-and-a-half-hour production is getting everything done on time.

"This is a big show to stage," Jacques, 31, said.

He would know because the only other show at the Grove larger than "Fiddler," which has 38 cast members, was "Joseph."

Is a large cast sometimes difficult to handle?

"Yeah. It's like being a wrangler because they're all over the place," Jacques said jokingly.

Well, our director redefined big in his comments for the Daily Bulletin's 3/19/2004 article about the Bridges production:

"It's a heavy-duty show dealing with real world issues," director Christopher Robertson said. "I'm sure the other theater companies will offer brilliant productions of "Fiddler,' but what separates our show is the fact that we will have 255 kids on stage."

Hmm...wonder if it's possible to perform "Fiddler" with a cast of thousands? And if so, would the Rose Bowl allow it to be staged?
