With a score of unforgettable songs like "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset," "Tradition" and "To Life," Fiddler on the Roof follows the life of Tevye, a dairyman in a small Russian village. Tevye attempts to honor and maintain the Jewish religious customs of his ancestors, but times are changing and his daughters are eager to follow new ways. When dangerous forces threaten the village's traditional way of life, Teyve's faith and love for his family give him strength to fight for his home and the traditions of his people. Based on the classic stories of Sholem Aleichem, this winner of nine Tony Awards explores timeless themes of community, family and tradition. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Scot Augustson’s Penguins —- the late-night series whose first installment opened this past weekend at Annex Theatre -— is something new in the world of Catholic mockery. Set in a cartoonish diocese where the nuns and priests engage in a constant war for power, Penguins rejects both pointed Catholic satire and any and all warmth-and-fuzziness by coming on like a hard-boiled crime thriller, with gangster priests, gun-toting nuns, and a bottomless well of depravity.” —The Stranger
Annex Theatre’s smash success, Penguins, returns! To consolidate his power over the parish, Father Jones decides to rid himself of the meddlesome Sister Bernadette – setting off an ecclesiastical turf war of biblical proportions! Featuring blasphemy, heresy, dancing, guns, organ music, puppet sex, and much much more, Penguins will shock and delight Catholics and non-Catholics alike!
Written by Scot Augustson (Sgt. Rigsby & His Amazing Silhouettes), directed by Bret Fetzer (director of Small Town by Kelleen Conway Blanchard), featuring Daniel Christensen, Chris Dietz, Teri Lazzara, Sophie Lowenstein, Jenny Schmidte, Jillian Vashro, Lisa Viertel, and Clayton Weller.
