Hartford Players Wake Me When I'm Dead

Dear Hartford Players Board,

It is an honor and a privilege to be chosen for the Don Friedemann Memorial Scholarship.  I enjoyed the opportunity to present my body of work to a group of artistic professionals of varied backgrounds, and your collective support is much appreciated.  Headed into my final year and my design capstone projects so I will be cutting back significantly on my employment hours.  Your contribution to my education goes a long way toward lightening the burden of low income.   Thank you for your generosity.

Now an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Indiana, Willum Cubbert has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI whom he has never met but who saved his life after he was seriously wounded in Vietnam. He has written to Rick to say that, as long as he is alive, "you will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you" - so Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his thirty-fourth birthday party. But his delight soon fades as it becomes apparent that Rick is a hopeless "nerd" - a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. And Rick stays on and on, his continued presence among Willum and his friends leading to one uproarious incident after another, until the normally placid Willum finds himself contemplating violence - a dire development which, happily, is staved off by the surprising "twist" ending of the play.

The 2013 Summer Production of Fiddler on the Roof -
Dedicated to the Memory of
Jessie Blodgett
Our fiddler - who brought light
into everyone's life!

Jessica Blodget

Jessie M. Blodgett, age 19, of Hartford, passed away unexpectedly Monday, July 15, 2013. Jessie was the cherished daughter of Buck and Joy Blodgett.

The 2nd weekend of the play - The cast dedicated that show to her and the following memorial was read.

"On Monday, a nightmare reached down into our midst and stole one of our very best and brightest.  Jessie Blodgett was our first act Fiddler - and so very much more. 

Tonight, a candle shines from the Fiddler’s roof, where Jessie’s shining smile and beautiful violin began our show.  She was the heart of our show family.  She cannot be replaced, so we shall not try.  By this candle, her light will guide us.

In the second act, the Fiddler will be portrayed as always by our principal violinist, Hazel Benton.

Tonight, our show goes on in Jessie's honor at the request of Jessie’s parents, and her family, many of whom are with us here tonight.   Your program contains but a snapshot of the remarkable life that was hers and, in the lobby, there is an opportunity to contribute in her memory benefitting charities selected by her family.

Tonight, our show goes on because we refuse to allow the light that she brought to our lives to be extinguished by the fear and darkness against which she fought so hard. 

Tonight, our show goes on because Fiddler speaks to the eternal journey to bring beauty, peace and joy to a world so often beset by struggle and hardship - and that journey was Jessie’s journey.

Tonight, our show goes on because it was her show.   Laugh with it, cry with it, sing with it, sing along with it if you feel you must, but revel in it – because she would want you to, for this is her gift to you -  a gift from the Fiddler on the Roof of the house of Heaven." 

She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, fellow students and all who knew her.
