Directed by Myrona DeLaney, choreography by Ellen Prince and Musical Direction by Gary Busby, the Saddleback Civic Light Opera and the Department of Theatre Arts are thrilled to celebrate tradition with its 35th season. In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.
