Fiorello cast begins rehearsals

Members of the cast of SBMT’s upcoming “Fiorello!” met for orientation on July 19. There was lots to learn, including some tidbits, truths, and a few fibs about the real Fiorello LaGuardia from producer Jay Steele. (Did Fiorello ever beat up a horse? Or did he fight his adversaries while standing on a chair? Answer below!)

The show opens September 19 at the Saratoga Civic Theatre and runs through October 10. Buy tickets now for the fabulous opening night gala! http://www.southbaymt.com/contact/tickets.html

Answer: No, LaGuardia never fought a horse. But the feisty, 5’2″ Fiorello did demand that someone bring a chair to the school yard so he could stand on it to take on his classmates.
