The Community Synagogue Theater Company presents the Tony Award-winning musical “Fiddler on the Roof” May 3 to 6 at the Sands Point Preserve Black Box Theater, located at 127 Middle Neck Road. Performances will be held Thursday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 6 at 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

“Fiddler” is a celebration of life and its challenges. Trying to balance life — like a fiddler on a roof — Tevye attempts to hold onto his traditions despite sweeping social change that is upsetting his family values while threatening his town’s very existence.

The CSTC show is being put on by a creative team, cast, musicians and crew drawn from all over New York City and Long Island. The musical is directed by Matt DeLuca and features Steve Brustein as Tevye. TCSTCs creative team includes original choreography by Sarah Lifson and musical direction by Michael Janover. The cast also includes Caryn Ronis as Golde, Lexee McEntee as Tzeitel, Lori Zlotoff as Yente, and Rob Neil as Motel.

“Fiddler on the Roof” first appeared on Broadway in 1964 and swept the Tony’s with nine “Best” awards including Best Musical for a score that features beloved songs such as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I were a Rich Man,” and “Sunrise, Sunset”.

The film adaptation was released in 1971 and received three Oscars including Best Score Adaptation for John Williams. It also won the Golden Globe for Best Picture.
