Fiddler on the Roof – Launch Workshop and Audition Dates

Fiddler on the Roof – November 2018 – LAUNCHING SOON

A Fiddler on the Roof. Sounds crazy, no? The opening lines of what I think is the best musical ever. Forget the film, with its overlay of Hollywood schmaltz, the musical itself has everything a musical should, which is why it’s so popular with casts and audiences alike. Despite the strength of its central characters, Tevye the story-telling milkman, Golde his wife, his three unmarried daughters and their spouses to be, it’s essentially an ensemble piece, the chorus is all. They sing great numbers, dance great dances, they present the village of unforgettable characters. Singers, dancers, actors, young, old, we need as many as we can fit on the Chequer Mead stage (and that’s a lot!).

It’s funny, catchy, tragic and uplifting. A chocolate with a serious centre. Come and play…

Get the dates in your diary now! 21st-24th November 2018. Want to be involved? Watch this space!

This classic rock musical has a great doo-wop feel with a lively Motown beat, wrapped around a terrific, out of this world story – a mix of 50’s sci-fi, a poignant love story and a hungry plant with a deep voice!

The story centres around a florist shop on Skid Row – a seedy part of New York.  Three girls, Crystal, Chiffon and Ronnette, resemble a Greek chorus to narrate the story to the audience and characters through song and dialogue.  They are hip, sassy and smart – often singing with a secret smile that says “we know something you don’t know”.  But at the centre is Seymour Krelborn, who is now falling in love with down-trodden Audrey while he acquires a plant that makes strange demands of him.

Great songs!  Terrific dancing! A story to melt your heart ……. and a plant ………
