Auditions for one of the nation’s well-loved musicals, “Fiddler on the Roof” will be Tuesday and Wednesday,

This production features favorite songs like “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “The Sabbath,” “Matchmaker” and “Tradition” to name only a few, will be directed by Vicki Meyer. Meyer has directed several GNTC plays and appeared in GNTC’s 1996 production when she played Golde alongside Ken Twit, reprising their roles as high school seniors. Now she’s in the director’s chair.
“Fiddler on the Roof” centers on Tevye, a village milkman, who lives in the little Russian town of Anatevka in 1905. He and his wife, Golde have five daughters. 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 tyranny of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
