FIDDLER ON THE ROOF to Conclude 2014 Season at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 10/9-11/23
In a true celebration of tradition, Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre's 2014 Season concludes with the 10-time Tony Award-winning: Fiddler on the Roof. This heartwarming musical marks its 50th Anniversary this year, and opens on Oct. 9 at Beef & Boards.
Douglas E. Stark reprises his favorite role of Tevye, the milkman, who is the center of this touching story set in the tiny village of Anatevka. Tevye does his best to protect his five daughters and instill them with traditional values, even in the face of changing times and social principles. Iconic songs include "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were A Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker."
Lynne Perkins, most recently seen at Beef & Boards as the Wicked Witch in the 2012 production of The Wizard of Oz, and a brief appearance as Sister Mary Regina in Nunsense that same year, returns in the role of Tevye's wife, Golde. Licia Watson, just seen as Aunt Eller in Oklahoma!, plays the matchmaker, Yente, while Mark Goetzinger, most recently seen as Professor Callahan in Legally Blonde in 2012, will play Lazar Wolf, the butcher. Joanna Krupnick, last seen as Roz Keith in 9 to 5, plays the eldest daughter, Tzeitel, who wants to marry Motel the tailor, played by Josh Levinson.
Included in the cast of this musical that emphasizes family is a real-life mother and her two daughters. Carrie S. Neal (seen most recently as Mrs. Cratchit in A Christmas Carol) will be in the ensemble, while her daughters Lucy and Mallory Neal play the roles of Shprintze and Bielke, Tevye's youngest daughters.
