The Fiddler On the Roof is a Tony-Award winning musical, and this astonishingly creative comedic classic is heading our way! The play is the big spring show for the CCC’s drama department. The Fiddler on the Roof is an astonishing and enduring play that you will not want to miss.
In “Fiddler,” a Jewish milkman and his family have to cope with the changes that are occurring in Czarist Russia in 1905. Set in an impoverished village where their traditional lifestyles are being threatened by modern radicalism, bigotry, pious, and social values, a man named Tevye and his wife, Golde, face these strains and continual bewildering onslaught that is surrounding them, as well as, trying to raise their daughters. Tevye, is played by CCC’s Kevin Kolva, his wife Golde, played by Taylor Farley. Tevye is the father of five girls and is trying to keep his family together in the Jewish traditions. Meanwhile, outside influences threaten to encroach upon their lives and change their entire way of living.
Tevye is forced to cope with the strong wills of his three eldest daughters, whose choices of taking action to marry outside of the traditional Jewish customs creates havoc .
The weight on Tevye, only further frustrates him, and drives crazy trying to be the glue holding is family together, as the Tsar moves him further away from his faith and the threat of eviction.
