Middle School Drama Preparing for 'Fiddler on the Roof, Jr.' to Debut March 30
SKANEATELES, NY (March 20, 2017) – Weeks after a highly successful run of ‘The Addams Family’ by the Skaneateles High School drama department, the Skaneateles Middle School drama team will next take to the high school auditorium stage with ‘Fiddler on the Roof, Jr.’ March 30-April 1.
Based on the award-winning, iconic Broadway classic, this special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, ‘Fiddler on the Roof, Jr.’ follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world.
Created by Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, ‘Fiddler on the Roof, Jr.’ tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and origin.
Set in the village of Anetvka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tightknit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.
The Middle School drama department will present a total of four performances for the general public starting Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1.
Friday’s performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. with Saturday’s shows taking place at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
A special performance for area senior citizens will kick-off the show week on Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
Tickets are available from any cast member and will also be available at the door.
