Monday, June 27
Pre-show concert: 7pm
Tickets: Adults: $10 online/$15 at the door. Children 12 and under: $5 online/$10 at the door.
Celebrate the beginning of summer vacation with a screening of the Oscar-winning 1971 movie and a mini-concert by musicians from the Broadway revival, including violin soloist Kelly Hall-Tompkins who the New York Times said “makes the music come alive.”
Featured in the New York Times as the "versatile violinist who brings the music to life", on the The NBC TODAY Show with Harry Smith for her "gorgeous violin solos," concert violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins is the actual violinist who is heard in the Tony-nominated hit revival of Fiddler on the Roof. Though never seen on stage, the New York Times hailed Ms. Hall-Tompkins as sharing the title role together with dancer Jesse Kovarsky who plays the onstage Fiddler.
Prior to the screening of the historic 1971 film, Hall-Tompkins will perform all new Fiddler inspired solo music, both original and arranged by the Broadway hit's own arranger Oran Eldor, with an ensemble of musicians from the actual show. Following the performance the artist will lead a Q&A about her role in the show, insights into the production and how a show gets put together from first rehearsal to opening night.
Movie Summary: In pre-revolutionary Russia, a Jewish peasant contends with marrying off three of his daughters while growing antisemitic sentiment threatens his village.
Starring Topol, Norma Crane, and Leonard Frey. Directed by Norman Jewison. 1971 180 min. With one intermission. Screened on BluRay in English with Spanish subtitles.
