The latest production of the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society features professional actors Sam Stein as Tevye and Kalie Rae as Golde. Sam Stein who played Tevye in the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre production of Fiddler on the Roof, is a professional equity actor most recently seen in the Segal Centre production of Guys and Dolls. Kallie Rae has performed professionally in the United States.
“We have taken another step forward by attracting such high caliber performers including a very talented cast of more than 60 actors well known to our community,” said Councillor Mitchell Brownstein, who is responsible for the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society and a long-time community theatre actor. “People were amazed at how good our community theatre productions of Grease and Norm Foster’s Office Hours were last year. Wait until they see Fiddler.”
Fiddler on the Roof runs from May 23 to June 9, 2013, at 5785 Parkhaven Ave., which is the former Wagar High School building, today called the Giovanni Palatucci Facility. The production is directed by Anisa Cameron.
Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. The show is set in Tsarist Russia in 1905. The original Broadway production of the show opened in 1964. The story centres on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one’s choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
