The dust has settled on the road out of Anatevka after the passing of its people, leaving it sadly behind – and that’s the literal leaving of our company from the theatre as well as the fictional villagers of the piece. We all loved our journey to that little Russian village so full of life and characters and hopes and fears and heartbreaks.
We want to thank everyone who came to see the show. We had fantastic audiences, and some fantastic feedback for the show too, as well as three 4-star reviews! Here are some of the audience comments:
“Watched Fiddler on the Roof last night and all I can say is WOW! Enthralled from start to finish. The cast worked incredibly well together to bring my favourite film to life. A very relevant story told in an emotional, heartfelt way.”
“I have loved this show since I was in it many many years ago, and wanted to join in while I watched it on Wednesday night. Everything about it was worthy of 5 stars – acting, music, dancing, production, set design, lighting, and especially the singing. Having discovered EMT, I shall definitely be at all future shows.”
“What a fantastic show, I’ve only ever seen Fiddler on the Roof on the TV, but the theatre production and cast were second to none. Well done everyone involved in making this happen.”
“I and a friend booked tickets & saw this production last night. It wasn’t until I got home and looked up the company that we realised it’s an amateur group. It certainly wasn’t an amateur production! Fantastic.”
We also have some wonderful photos that capture all the vim and emotion of the production and the talented Maria Polyakova from our company has put them into a memory book which you can view here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEgbWGULL6M&feature=youtu.be

We would like to thank everyone who was involved who helped from the largest to the smallest ways to get this production onto the stage, as well as our wonderful audiences. We hope we’ll see you again at our Fringe shows in August and at Guys and Dolls back in the King’s next May.
