Whidbey Children's Theatre presents Fiddler on the Roof, Jr opening on Friday, March 9th and running weekends through Sunday, March 18th. The second mainstage production of WCT's ELEMENTAL season is a musical theatre classic directed by WCT Alum Sommer Harris and musical directed by Andrea Frey Rieneckert, who previously worked on the record-breaking Mary Poppins last August.
This special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof JR. follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Created by Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof JR. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.
Performances run at 7:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, with 2:00pm Sunday matinees. Sunday, March 11th continues the tradition of WCT's Family Day Matinee when all tickets are priced at $8.
