Dinner Theatre to Feature Preview of Charleston Light Opera Guild's 'Fiddler on the Roof'

Join WVU Tech’s Division of Student Life and WVU Tech Student Support Services on Tuesday, October 21 as they host a night of fine dining and a preview performance of the Charleston Light Opera Guild’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof”.

“Fiddler” tells the tale of Tevye, a Jewish milkman living in early twentieth-century Russia, and his five strong-willed daughters. Throughout the musical, Tevye and his family struggle with notions of poverty, tradition, revolution and anti-Semitism. The show first opened on Broadway in 1964, and has since become one of the longest-running musicals in history.

During the preview performance at WVU Tech, attendees will enjoy a specially prepared meal as performers deliver selected musical numbers from the Guild’s upcoming production, which is co-produced with the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia and opens October 31 at the Maier Foundation Performance Hall in Charleston.

The dinner theatre event will be hosted in the Tech Center Ballroom. Doors open at 6 p.m., dinner will be served at 6:30, and the show starts at 7 p.m. with a question-and-answer session to follow.

To attend, register in person with Karen Skaggs in Old Main 325 no later than Friday, October 17 at 4 p.m. Students will need to provide their nine-digit WVUID number. There are only 80 spots, so register today!

In lieu of ticket sales, donations will be collected for the Guild in support of its mission to bring classic and modern shows to stages throughout the Kanawha Valley. For more information, or to see a schedule of upcoming guild performances, visit
