Description:

Audition for "Fiddler on the Roof" Show. Ages 10 and up are welcome. Please see the details below. About the project: Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends, Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; songwriters, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick; and book writer, Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values 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's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. Additional info: Please prepare 60 to 90 seconds of a song in the style of the show (not from the show). Please bring digital accompaniment; a speaker will be provided. Be prepared for cold reads from the script. Please wear attire and shoes appropriate for a short dance audition. If interested, please apply.
