FCS presents Fiddler on the Roof Junior April 12-13

Friendship Christian School presents Fiddler on the Roof Junior this weekend at the Lester Family Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m.onThursday, April 11,Friday, April 12, and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 13.

Set in the little village of Anatevka in turn of the century Russia, Fiddler on the Roof Junior is the classic tale of Tevye the Dairyman, and his struggle to hold onto tradition in the face of a changing world.

The beginning of the 20th century was a time of great upheaval and change in Russia. It was the eve of what is known as the Russian Revolutionary period. The small Jewish villages that peppered Russia were subjected to unspeakable things. Such social and political unrest is the backdrop for the story that is the heart of Fiddler On The Roof Junior.

As Tevye's commitment to his family, religion and the tradition that created them is tested, we see the rich love and moral dedication that holds it all together. The play is based on the short stories of Sholom Aleichem, who the New York Times called "...the warm-hearted spokesman of the poor Jews in the Russian villages at the turn of the century." Fiddler On The Roof opened on Broadway in 1964, starring Zero Mostel, to rave reviews and a long Broadway run, before being made into a major motion picture in 1971 starring Topol.

The cast includes the following students:

TEVYE -- Ethan Kearney

GOLDE -- Katie Pulliam

TZEITEL -- McKayla Strickland

HODEL -- Carolyn Wilkinson

CHAVA -- Abby Loring

SHPRINTZE -- Annah Smith

BIELKE -- Peyton Smith
