WHO'S WHO IN FIDDLER ON THE ROOF...EMILY KINKA IS HODEL

Image
The Media Theatre presents a special presentation of the classic musical "Fiddler On The Roof" this summer to celebrate the show's 50th anniversary. It's produced by Media Music Theatre Company and is on stage July 11 through August 10, with performances on Friday nights at 7pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 7pm, and Sundays at 3pm.  A youth cast shares the stage with several professional adult actors to remind audiences of the brilliance of this wonderful Tony winning Broadway musical. "Fiddler On The Roof" is all about Tevye, a Jewish man in Russia in the early 1900's who is doing his best to keep his family together amidst changing times and while his five daughters are growing up right before his eyes. It's a musical steeped in "Tradition!"
