About the show: This special adaptation of the nine-time Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof JR. follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Created by Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof JR. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition. Fiddler JR. is the perfect musical for your young actor. Whether they are a seasoned professional or just beginning in theatre, it offers something for everyone to enjoy and learn!

FAQs About Camp Casa:
What’s a typical day like at Camp Casa?
Camp is Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM. Campers are divided into small groups according to age and are assigned at least one dedicated Camp Counselor. On a typical day, campers will spend half the day rehearsing for a show, while the other half of the day is spent taking classes in acting, singing, and dancing focused on giving your camper the skills they need to succeed on and off the stage.
Play Early and Stay Late options are available for nominal fee (space is limited and all sales are final.)
