Fiddler on the Roof Jr.
Directed by Stephen Stearns
A tale of family and tradition, set in Tsarist Russia, Fiddler on the
Roof, by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, is the story of a family
broken apart by many forces.
Tevye has three daughters, and he would like to marry them off in a
traditional style - a match maker chooses husbands for them, and the
girls settle happily and grow into their matches. The daughters have
different plans. Tzeitel falls in love with Motel the tailor, a nice
young man. But this disrupts her father's intentions to have her
married to his good friend, Lazar Wolf, an old, rough, and unappealing
option. Hodel follows in her sister's footsteps and falls in love,
without permission, with a travelling student who turns out to be a
Bolshevik revolutionary constantly risking exile to Siberia. Chava,
youngest of the marriageable daughters, falls in love with a non-Jew.
Can Tevye forgive his daughters for breaking with Tradition? Will the
family ever be together again? Can their roots in their village of
Anatevka hold them all together? Find out this December at the New
England Youth Theatre in Brattleboro, VT!
