The Wedding Singer

The Charleston Light Opera Guild is thrilled to close out its 65th Anniversary season with a mounting of the musical theatre masterpiece, Fiddler on the Roof, to be co-presented with the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia on October 31, November 1, 7 and 8, 2014 at 7:30 pm with matinees on Sunday November 2 and 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Performances for school age children and youth will be presented on the mornings of November 5 and 6, 2014.

Fiddler on the Roof is set in Imperial Russia in 1905. It is based on the short story "Tevye and his Daughters" by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild has previously produced Fiddler on the Roof in 1972, 1978, 1989 and most recently in 2000.

Tickets for the co-presentation of Fiddler on the Roof are currently on sale at the Clay Center box office.
