The VMHS Harlequins originally staged Fiddler on the Roof in 2003 in the campus gymnasium and marked a return of theater productions to the school. At that time, Superintendent Jackie F. Dyer was so impressed with the work of the Harlequins, he arranged to rent the McAllen Civic Center Auditorium for a special performances of the play. This also helped build community support for the construction of dedicated performing arts theaters at both VMHS and Mission High School. When the theater building at VMHS was completed, the first play performed in the new facility was Fiddler on the Roof. So this play holds a special place in the hearts of students, past and present, who have been a part of the Harlequins.
