Theatre - Directing

    Sunnyvale Community Players
    Sunnyvale, California

    April 9 - May 2, 2004


    This musical should need little introduction. Based on Sholom Aleichem's turn-of-the-20th-century Yiddish stories about Tevye the Dairyman, this musical is funny, charming, dramatic, and a wonderful theatrical representation of Judaica.

    Of course, Tevye lives in a little Russian village called Anatevka with his wife and five daughters. The musical is armed with several timeless songs, "Wonder of Wonders," "Sunrise, Sunset," "L'Chaim," "Matchmaker," "Tradition," and many more.

    The large ensemble cast includes many significant parts for the various distinct characters who populate Anatevka, daring to make life as shaky as a fiddler on the roof.

    This is the fifth production, and fourth musical, I've directed in California. My appearance as Mendel in Foothill Music Theatre's 1998 production was my first stage role after moving to California.
