fiddler

Directed by Stephanie Kenny-Gomez, with Kim Champagne as musical director and Wanda Dishman as choreographer, this timeless classic brings to life the story of Tevye (Larry Hyatt), a poor dairyman living in the small tradition filled Russian village of Anatevka  just prior to the Russian Revolution, where Jews and Russians live in delicate balance. Tevye, his wife Golde (Ginny Medina Hamilton) have their traditions challenged as three of their five daughters Tzeitel (Christine Samanie), Holdel (Kirsten Bazet), and Chava (Amber Gatlin) grow up and fall in love. Their suitors, Lazar Wolf (John Reeves), Motel (Davey Lusco ll), Perchick (Stephen Donovan) and Fyedka (River Olden), aided or hampered by the Matchmaker (Jeanne Scott), increasingly push Tevye’s traditional limits. Produced by Gayle Walters and George Beaudry, this offering of one of America’s most beloved musicals is not to be missed. Make your reservations early or risk missing out on a visual and auditory delight that you will remember fondly for years to come.

More About The Piece:

Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends, Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; songwriters, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick; and bookwriter, Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon.

Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
