One Act, Book Musical, Rated G
Broadway Junior Version
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to
instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish
community in the face of changing social mores and the growing
anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
JR. is a special adaptation of the classic Broadway
musical, which tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that
reach across barriers of race, class, nationality, and religion, leaving
audiences in tears – both of joy and sadness. The show features a star
turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in the musical theatre
canon. Its celebrated score, by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, features
songs loved the world over, including “Tradition,” “If I Were A Rich
Man,” and “Sunrise, Sunset.” FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
JR. is a great introduction to the world of musical
theatre. Young performers will love its humor, warmth, and honesty.
Directors will love the opportunity to direct a large cast with a good
balance of male and female roles.
