Fiddler on the Roof

For a fun evening with the family, go see Twin City Stage’s production of Fiddler on the Roof. This community theatre production of the Broadway legend, set in the rural village of Anatevka in 1905 Tsarist Russia, tells the tale of Tevye as he tries to teach his daughters the importance of tradition in a quickly changing world, and their struggles against those traditions in the name of love. Music by Jerry Bock. Lyrics by Sheldon Harnic. Book by Joseph Stein. This Twin City Stage performance was directed Bobby Bodford; Music Director, Margaret Gallagher;  and choreographed by Benji Starcher.

A Multi-Faceted Performance

Fiddler on the Roof Twin City StageThis musical has it all: poignant cultural depictions, a touching story, beautiful music paired with lovely voices, honesty and humor, and spirited dance numbers. A full orchestra plays the heartwarming score (no “canned” music here), filled with favorites like “Tradition”,  “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”, “If I Were a Rich Man” and the sombre “Sunrise, Sunset” and “Anatevka”. The voice of Kate Skawski, as Tevye’s daughter, Hodel, sparkles throughout the performance. The Russian dancing is a particularly delightful and rousing part of the show. I only wish there were more! Fiddler on the Roof is a touching, unforgettable experience. Relive the tradition time and again!

Casting

Fiddler on the Roof Twin City Stage Tevye
Twin City Stage has done a wonderful job in casting the musical. Tim Austin plays Tevye, an endearing milkman who is torn between following the traditions of his rural village and Jewish faith, and being a loving and understanding father to his daughters as they break from those traditions. Austin’s stellar acting performance is complete with Russian accent, along with Golde, Tevye’s wife, played by Charlene Bray Martin, and the spectacularly played part of the butcher, Lazar Wolf, by Roy Carlson. It is clear that the entire cast has poured their hearts into their roles to make these memorable characters come to life.

 

Note to Parents

Note: For those with young children considering the show, Donna Bisette does a exquisite, yet frightening portrayal of the haunting, shrill, 10-foot tall ghost of Fruma-Sarah in Tevye’s “nightmare”.

The performance lasts about two hours and 45 minutes, including an intermission. Beverages, including wine are available for purchase before the show.
