Submitted. Gallery 7 Theatre will be holding open auditions for Fiddler on the Roof, the Tony Award-wining musical and the theatre’s third production of the 2014/2015 Refined by Fire Theatre Season, on Tuesday, November 18 at 6:30PM. The auditions are open to all male and female performers ages 16 – 65. They will be held at Gallery 7 Theatre’s new rehearsal hall at Huntington Station, #100 – 34595 3rd Ave, Abbotsford.

Living in a tiny village in pre-revolutionary Russia, Tevye etches out a meager life as a dairy farmer while raising his five daughters in the traditions and values of his Jewish faith. Facing eviction by the anti-sematic Czarist regime, Tevye’s world is further challenged when each of his three eldest daughters select husbands that could threaten the very fabric of his long-held, much-beloved customs. This endearing and highly adored Tony-Award winning musical probes the tension that exists between tradition and the values of a restless, ever-changing world.

“We’re very excited to be presenting this much-beloved and heart-warming musical,” says Ken Hildebrandt, Executive/Artistic Director of Gallery 7 Theatre. “It’s a story about family, fathers and daughters, tradition, tolerance and survival in the face of persecution…a perfect fit for our Refined by Fire season.”

Fiddler on the Roof will run March 13 & 14, 19 – 21, 2015 @ 7:30 PM with discount matinees on March 14 & 21 at 2:00 PM at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, 2329 Crescent Avenue, Abbotsford. Rehearsals will commence the week of December 3rdh. The production will be directed by Charlene Crawford, who last directed The Fantasticks for Gallery 7 Theatre.
