As a spectacular finale to the 2012 Festival, Mameloshen will bring to life excerpts from Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish. After several years of planning and discussion, the stories of Sholem Aleichem that went on to become one of the most successful Broadway musicals ever, will come to life in Yiddish.

Fiddler On The Roof has been done in Japanese, Hebrew and perhaps Spanish, but this is the first time in Western Canada (perhaps even the first time in Canada) that will be performed in Yiddish. The show with its all-Winnipeg cast will feature excerpts from the musical. Local talent for Fiddler on the Roof include Jill Brandes, Miriam Bronstein, Doreen Brownstone, Jerry Cohen, Shayla Fink, Debbie Maslowsky, Mal Magorel Justin Odwak, Bonnie Robinson and Perry Rubenfeld. Under the leadership of producer Kinsey Posen, a full artistic team is being assembled. Lyrics will be projected on a screen in English to allow everyone to enjoy this amazing venture into musical theatre.
