Pupils honour actor with Fiddler extracts

April 18, 2008

King David Primary pupils Rafi and Max Benmayor gave their own Fiddler On The Roof performance for Liverpool-born actor Joe McGann, who is playing Tevye in a national touring production of the musical. The boys played extracts from the show on the grand piano at the Empire Theatre lounge. McGann explained that he had a connection with the show as his Jewish father-in-law Geoff Locise was in the original West End production with Topol. “Tazmin, my wife, told me that getting the part was a blessing — almost as if we’d given him a grandchild.”

A capacity audience of around 1,000 people were shown the plans for the new King David Schools’ campus at the high school’s speech night. The project, due for completion in 2010, is on track to provide state-of-the-art facilities. The campus site is to be rebuilt at a cost of about £23 million as part of the government’s “Schools for the Future” programme.
