Fiddler on the Roof is the award winning epic set in Russia on the eve of the Russian Revolutionary Period in the fictional town of Anatevka. It is here that Tevye, a milkman, played by Marlon David (Crazy for You) lives with his wife and five daughters (played by Lion King finalist Tramaine Lamy) and newcomers Margot Ann Spears; Hannah Howard; and Kendra Sylvester. Tevye attempts to straddle the dictates of his Jewish heritage and the larger Russian culture in getting his daughters married off using a matchmaker. However, his three oldest daughters have much more modern ideas about love and each one takes her own path to get herself a husband.
The performance will feature many famous melodies including ‘If I Was a Rich Man,’ ‘Sunrise Sunset,’ and ‘Matchmaker.’ There are laughs by the minute, great choreography and live accompaniment by the National Sinfonia.
The production will be staged at Queen’s Hall; from June 29 to July 2. The Thursday performance starts at 7 pm; Friday and Saturday performances start at 7:30 pm, while the Sunday performance will start at 5 pm.
The production is once again directed by Louis Mc Williams of (‘Dragon Can’t Dance’ and ‘Ogun Iyan – As In Pan’). Jessel Murray, on his third major musical theatre production this year, is the music director and conductor.
Adele Bynoe and Hazel Franco will both choreograph.
Tickets priced at $150 are available at Queen’s Hall Box Office and the Centre for Creative and Festival Arts.
