Opening on Broadway in 1964, the musical "Fiddler on the Roof" finally made its way to the stage at Tosa East where the award-winning Tosa East Players brought the magic of the turn-of-the-century village of Anatevka, Russia, to life in its near capacity houses.
"Fiddler" tells the story of Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman, struggling to survive in turn-of-the-century czarist Russia. He attempts to maintain his family and religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope with both the strong willed actions of his three older daughters and with the edict of the of czar that evicts the Jews from their village.
From the talented cast numbering 53 to the great pit orchestra of 28 and the unsung crew of 25, the whole production moved effortlessly with each aspect of the production very powerfully and professionally done.
I wholeheartedly recommend seeing "Fiddler On The Roof" at Tosa East the closing weekend at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 3, and Saturday, April 4. Good seats are still available for both the final performances by calling the box office at (414) 773-2004 for reservations.
Tickets will also be available at the door.
