Looking for something to do this weekend?
Nipmuc Regional High School Freshman Tommy Doyle will be debuting in the role of Mendel, the Rabbi’s son, in Hanover Theatre’s production of Fiddler on the Roof.
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler On The Roof’s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
The show is the culmination of the three-week Hanover Theatre Youth Summer Program under the direction of Meghan Patrick. The show is at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14 and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Aug. 15. Tickets can be purchased here or at the box office.
