Broadway Junior Version
A musical theatre tradition, Tevye the milkman tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS) 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.
Set in the little village
of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five
daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community,
Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with tradition in
the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of
Czarist Russia. 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.

Highly successful when it was first on Broadway, Where’s Charley? never benefitted from an original Broadway cast recording due to a recording industry strike.
