Theatre troupe presents Fiddler

Production runs from now until June 3 in Whonnock

The Theatre in the Country production of Fiddler on the Roof reaches a new standard with the inclusion of a live orchestra for its latest musical, now on until June 3 in Whonnock.

The classic musical also features eight Mission actors in the cast of 35. Taking the lead of Tevye is Reg Parks, who grew up in Mission. He is joined by Julie Waage, Janet Eastwood, Jerryth Keen, Mary-Rose Lee Wah and Alexandra Kier.

Fiddler on the Roof is set in a small village in Imperial Russia in 1905. The story is about the father of five daughters who struggles to maintain Jewish traditions in a time of increasingly powerful outside influences.

The dinner theatre show opened in Whonnock on May 25 and stays for a two-week run until it moves to Langley’s Walnut Grove neighbourhood for another two week run from June 8 to June 17.
