(Grades 4-9, 70 Minutes) This special Broadway Jr. edition features one of Broadway's greatest masterpieces, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's Fiddler on the Roof. An epic piece of theatre, this edition has been edited to about 70 minutes in length. It covers the full range of human emotions and encourages young people to think about their roots as well as important issues of community, tradition, toleranceand faith. Set in the little village of Anatevka, Fiddler...Jr. tells the story Tevye, a poor dairyman, as he tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of their small tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Its charm, humor warmth, honesty and universal themes cut across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion and will bring the world of the theatre to your very own backyard.
