Last September, when Helga Terre presented to the Board of Directors the idea of "Fiddler on the Roof," we all became very excited to launch into this endeavor. Ms. Terre explained to us the inspiration behind her interest as well as how she saw Chagall's painting coming to life at the Park.
Well, tonight I was able to see her vision transform the stage. In partial costume, with incredible painted set pieces, Old Russia is brought to life by the actors of the Washington Community Theatre, Inc. The cast is led by Adam Brock as Tevye. Adam is living and breathing Tevye on stage. If you ever wanted to be submerged into the emotions of another human being from a different world in a different time, then please see Adam's portrayal of the family patriarch's internal, and sometimes external, battles between the traditions of his beliefs and the want to see his daughters happy in their lives and loves.
It is sheer joy to listen to Golde, played by Summerlea Klinar, and Tevye sing together. Then when you add in a cast of more than 70 men, women and children singing in a well-blended, easily understood and expressive fashion your heart begins to feel every emotion of the characters on stage. This was especially true of the "Sabbath Prayer" portion of the rehearsal.
Now onto the men! I love to listen to a large group of men singing. I especially enjoy it when there is some type of movement involved. All of this stems from my experience in "Brigadoon" three summers ago. Well, "TO LIFE!" gives the "Run and Get him" scene a run in my favorite department. "To Life" makes you smile, laugh and desire to sing and dance along with the merry tavern patrons. BRAVO!
I could go on, but really, you should come and witness this splendid musical for yourself.
"Fiddler on the Roof" will be performed June 24-28 at Washington Park's Main Pavilion at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.washingtoncommunitytheatre.org/wct-event-tickets or by calling 724-222-5596. I look forward to meeting all of you next week and wish that you and your family make WCT, Inc. musicals a "Tradition" for years to come!
