Life as we have it, not necessarily as we would like it.... Cast does justice to classic If I Were a Rich Man: Andy Spence as Tevye in the Waiheke Choral Society Production of Fiddler on the Roof, which opens this Friday night at Artworks Theatre. The Waiheke Choral Society production of Fiddler on the Roof opens on Friday at Artworks Theatre. Jerry Flay previews their version of the enduring classic. In character: Alex Balfour as Yussel the hatmaker and Bernard Rhodes as the Rabbi. A fiddler on the roof? Sounds crazy, doesn t it, and yet here on our little island of Waiheke you will soon be able to see the local take on one of the great stage shows of all time. Fiddler on the Roof depicts social upheaval among poor Jewish com- munities during the decline of Tsarist Russia in 1905. It is at times funny, sad, challenging and warming but above all it is a microcosmic portrayal of the events that helped shape the 20th century. Many of its themes are current today and many of its characters are decidedly reminiscent. In playing the protag- onist Tevye, a milkman, Andy Spence takes on the greatest challenge of his acting career. As the rock on which the whole play is built, it is a most demanding role. The father of five strong-willed daughters, and encumbered by an equally strong-willed wife, Tevye finds his life and established ways challenged daily. Everything in the vil- lage of Anatevka is dictated by tradition. Why? , explains Tevye, because it s a tradition. But the rule of tra- dition is waning, leaving Tevye constantly seeking the familiarity of his for- merly ordered life. Tevye is a role that most actors only dream of playing -- Andy fulfills that ambition with relish and verve. Famous Jewish actor Topol first played Tevye in London in 1967 and he was still playing it when the show visited Auck- land in 2006. Andy Spence has had slightly less time to rehearse, but he delivers a thoroughly convincing and enter- taining Topol, ably assisted by his wife Maya who plays his wife Golde. The show combines pathos and humour in equal measure, enhanced by a number of familiar musical numbers including If I were a Rich Man, Tra- dition and To Life. As it moves towards its gut- wrenching conclusion, the lights dim, the tunes veer towards the soulful, and sadness, tinged with regret, seeps across the stage and infuses the audience with a sense of personal participation, as the village of Anatevka and the lives of those we come to know so well change forever. Fiddler on the Roof is an enduring classic. It is an ambitious perform- ance for any amateur troupe, but the cast of 42 does it enormous justice, and if there is a spare seat in the house, you should jump on it. And look out for the dream sequence -- it s a showstopper! Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for children and concessions or $50 for a family pass, avail- able from the TimeOut Cafe at the theatre, or on the door, or phone 372-7724.
