Sholom Aleichem: Fiddler Sing-a-long
May 19 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Who could have predicted that a Yiddish writer’s tales of an impoverished Jewish milkman in czarist Russia, reborn as a smash Broadway hit, would become a cultural touchstone of lasting popularity and global recognition into the 21st century?
As we honor Jewish American Heritage Month, Scotch Plains Public Library’s May programs will examine the phenomenon of Fiddler on the Roof from a variety of vantage points.
Tim White returns! Author, historian, performer, professor, and one of our library’s all-time favorites – alongside Jessica Katz – will lead us in a rousing group sing-a-long as we view the 1971 hit film (running time: 3 hours, 1 minute).
No registration is necessary. Costumes are welcomed!
Plan to join us for these other ‘Fiddler’ programs:
- Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness (Film): Thursday, May 2 at 7pm
- Ed Goldberg and Odessa Klezmer Band – Sunday, May 5 at 2pm
- Sholem Aleichem: Historian John Kenrick – Thursday, May 16 at 7pm
