Fiddler on the Roof

Set in a small village in Russia in 1905 this is the story of Tevye, the milkman, his wife Golde and his five daughters, not forgetting Yente, the matchmaker.

Set in a small village in Russia in 1905 this is the story of Tevye, the milkman, his wife Golde and his five daughters, not forgetting Yente, the matchmaker.

This Cromer and Sheringham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society production, by Amanda Howell as director and Roger Heath as the musical director, has everything – a very clever set enhanced by lighting, excellent costumes, glorious music and fine performances by the entire cast.

Peter Howell was outstanding as Tevye who had to tolerate daughters Tzeitel, Hodel and Hava, choosing their own husbands and then explain this to wife Golde, beautifully played by Nona Grey.

These three daughters and their partners sang and acted very well – Janet Hignett as Tzeitel with Andrew Payne as Motel the meek tailor,

Selina White as Hodel with Mike Denmark as Perchik the rebellious student and Michaela Dennis as Chava with Paul Bryant as Fyedka, a Russian Cossack.

Mary Cubitt as Yente, John Drury as Lazer Wolfe the butcher, Peter Spink as the Constable, Maurice Whiting as the innkeeper, Janet Nightingale as Grandma Tzeitel and Claire Reynolds as Fruma-Sarah all impressed.
