Theatre Bristol reveals its 2019 Season of dramas and musicals as part of its arts benefit gala on November 9 at 6:00 pm at the Paramount Center for the Arts. Following the reveal announcement, food, drinks, and Broadway show tunes, guests will enjoy premium seating at Theatre Bristol’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof” directed by Glenn Patterson. Tickets are available at https://goo.gl/v14LQL.
Fiddler on the Roof features iconic and beloved songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.” Fiddler on the Roof’s music and messages transcend time and culture. “Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness” (MTIshows).
The evening event will feature J&K Classics performing favorite Broadway show tunes at the Paramount Center for the Arts annex, along with the featured presentation and prize drawings for 2019 season tickets.
Admission to the 6:00 pm event is $50, which includes the evening’s full-length performance of “Fiddler on the Roof.” Reservations can be made online by visiting https://goo.gl/v14LQL or by calling 423-212-3625 by November 7.
