The village of Anatevka has taken over the stage at the Saratoga Civic Theater as final preparations are under way for West Valley Light Opera’s FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. The excitement continues to build as opening night nears. The show is full of familiar songs such as “Tradition”, “If I Were a Rich Man”, “Sunrise, Sunset”, “To Life!”, and “Sabbath Prayer”. Come see dances such as the “Bottle Dance”. Enjoy the gentle humor and rousing celebrations by the exuberant villagers and be touched by their hope and spirit in the face of tragedy. Tickets are selling well, but WVLO would love to see a full house for the gala opening night on 9 November 2013. Please call 408-268-3777 or visit the WVLO website at http://www.wvlo.org to order your tickets now. You’ll be glad you did.
If you can’t make opening night on the 9th you will be missed, but the show runs 9 November – 7 December, so you still can join the fun later in the run. You’ll just miss out on all the opening night festivities including plentiful food and drink after the show to celebrate the occasion.
If you read the earlier A Good Reed Review article about the show (https://agoodreedreview.com/2013/10/18/wvlo-fiddler-promo/), you know about the story, the artistic staff, and who’s in the cast. Below you can see a few photos of some of the leading players.
Don’t forget to mention your favorite FIDDLER company member when you order tickets, or tell them you heard about the show here on A Good Reed Review.
As mentioned in the previous article, performances are at the Saratoga Civic Theater located at 13777 Fruitvale Avenue, Saratoga, CA 94070.
