Auditions Open for Newnan Theatre Company’s Production of “Fiddler on the Roof”
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.
Rich in historical and ethnic detail, “Fiddler on the Roof” has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theatre. Original director/choreographer Jerome Robbins' staging is legendary, and available from MTI in a comprehensive choreographic guide. Its celebrated score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, features songs loved the world over: "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker," to name a few. “Fiddler on the Roof” is simply Broadway at its very best.
Auditions will take place June 10 & 11 from 7 to 9 pm at Newnan Theater Company, 24 1st Avenue Newnan, GA 30263.
