Theatre at the Mount Presents Fiddler on the Roof
Mt. Carmel High School’s Theatre at the Mount invites the community to a spectacular performance of Fiddler on The Roof. Guests will, once again, experience a cast and crew-led musical production that has been an award-winning Broadway musical since its opening show in 1964. “With Diane Jones as director and a cast led by Alika Hebbert, Fiddler on the Roof will prove to be the kind of professional quality stage production guests have come to expect from the Theatre at the Mount,” shared Delone Coult, publicity chair for MCHS Drama Boosters.
The original Broadway production of the show had the first musical theatre run in history to boast over 3,000 performances. Fiddler held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost ten years until it was surpassed by Grease. It remains Broadway’s 15th longest-running show in history and Theater at the Mount cast and crew are eager to share the enlightening story and enchanting melodies that are sure to please the entire family. Music will be performed by Mt. Carmel’s Grammy award-winning orchestra.
Based on the short stories by Sholem Aleichem, Fiddler on The Roof has won the hearts of audiences as a classic story that tackles the timeless issues of traditions, prejudice, love and loss. Set in a small Jewish village in Russia in 1905, the story revolves around Tevye, a poor milkman with five daughters who put his traditions to a test. Watch as Tevye tries desperately to keep traditions alive during an ever changing world.
Performances are April 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 at 7 p.m. with matinee performances on Saturday the 20th and 27th at 1 p.m. Members of the cast and crew will be available for a question and answer session after the matinee performances.
