Fiddler on the Roof is at the Ordway

Giveaway for 4 Tickets for Kids’ Night 12/2

My first encounter with Fiddler on the Roof was in that scene with Mrs. Doubtfire when they’re making up Robin Williams into a woman and they re-enact the “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” song. It’s such a catchy tune that when I got the chanc to see the film from the 70’s I was intrigued.

I received tickets in exchange for promotion for this giveaway and post. All opinions are my own.

Rich with musical hits you know and love, including “Tradition,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “To Life (L’Chaim!),” FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is the heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and life, love and laughter.

Kids Night on Broadway 12/2

6:30pm in the Target Atrium • Preshow performance and activity by Di Bayke Klezmer Band

Arrive early on December 2 for a special preshow performance by local group Di Bayke Klezmer Band—plus an educational activity for the whole family!

Di Bayke Klezmer Band, formed in 2020 in Minneapolis, plays the energetic party music of Balkan and Eastern European Jewish tradition. Band members have studied with master-artists from the klezmer tradition, including Lisa Gutkin of The Klezmatics, Ethel Raim of The Pennywhistlers, and Zoë Aqua at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. Bayke is a Yiddish word meaning “fairy tale,” and is an acronym for Backyard Klezmer Ensemble, harkening to the band’s roots rehearsing outside during the COVID pandemic.

Reopening the Ordway

It’s exciting to see things reopening again and seeing the theater welcoming patrons is a welcome sight that maybe we’re getting back to some kind of normal.
