Carmel Valley Middle School student to perform in local production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’

In the early moments of “Fiddler on the Roof,” the dairyman and central character Tevye states that, “without our traditions, our lives would be as shaky as…as a Fiddler on the Roof!” And so begins this tale of devotion, defiance, and tradition in one of the most popular Broadway musicals ever. “Fiddler on the Roof” comes to the stage of the Moonlight Amphitheatre as the second show in Moonlight Stage Productions’ 32nd summer season. “Fiddler on the Roof” will run from July 25-Aug. 11.

Starring as Tevye is David Ellenstein, the respected director, actor, and Artistic Director of North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach. Ellenstein makes his Moonlight debut having appeared in more than 200 productions nationally and taking on more than three-dozen film and television roles. Joining him as his wife Golde is LA-based actress Victoria Strong, remembered for her portrayal of Mother in Moonlight’s award-winning and critically acclaimed production of Ragtime, Lily Vanessi in Kiss Me, Kate, and the Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music.
