About the Musical Weekend Workshop:
We spend two Saturdays working on the songs and storyline. Instead of a script we have a storyboard, so we know what needs to happen when and which song to sing. Dialogue is improvised and then rehearsed.  After two days we present the results to our non-paying audience.  It has proven to be a fun and exciting project in years past and we are looking forward to having a wonderful time with Fiddler on the Roof.

About the Show:
Fiddler on the Roof is a classic musical written in 1964 set in the fictional village of Anatevka, around 1905.  The Jewish population there has difficulties dealing with anti-semitism, making a living, keeping up with old traditions and opening up to new ideas.  Based on a character of Sholem Alecheim’s, Tevye the Milkman, we get a glimpse into the lives of Tevye, his wife and daughters, their husbands and village life in Anatevka.  Wonderful songs such as “If I Were a Rich Man”, “To Life”, “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”, “Sunrise, Sunset” and more abound. 

Costs:
open to InPlayers members only
15 euros for the entire workshop (due to rising rehearsal space costs)
