The American School of Puerto Vallarta students are embracing “tradition” with their production of Fiddler on the Roof JR. The show, featuring around 40 students, from grades 4-12th, premieres on Thursday, October 12, with additional shows on Friday, October 13 and Saturday, October 14. All shows are at 8:00 pm.

From the first rehearsal the students from ASPV have explored how Fiddler on the Roof JR. touches on life in Pre-Revolutionary Russia. They are examining important issues such as tradition, tolerance and faith, all of which remain relevant today. We applaud the unique ways that each student has contributed to the show, from performing, to designing props, lights and scenery, as well as Mr. Rob, our musical’s director, for bringing out the best in each of our performers.

ASPV will present Fiddler on the Roof JR at our Javadpour Arts Center. Tickets are $100 pesos general admission ($80 pesos pre-sale), and a reduced price of $50 pesos fort teachers, students, and children under the age of 12. Tickets will be available for pre-purchase at the school’s cashier and at the gate. For more information on the show please call: 322 226 76 72

The musical tells the story of a poor dairyman, Tevye, who in the little village of Anatevka, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tightly knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. The traditions of his ancestors are shattered as his daughters assert their independence and government troops brutally force Tevye and his fellow villagers from their homes. The curtain falls on Tevye’s uplifting determination to create another life in the New World.

Fiddler on the Roof JR. is a student version of the original musical which features music by Jerry Bock, a book by Joseph Stein and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and is based on Sholem Aleichem’s stories by special permission of Arnold Per. Recognized as one of great American musicals, the original Fiddler on the Roof won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, nine Tony awards and a special Tony in 1972 for its unique contribution to Broadway.
