"Many parents reported that their children have been singing Fiddler on the Roof songs at home after the performance!" Our Urban Times
In this whimsical musical by kids, for kids, the talented young performers of the Blue Room Young Company bring a shortened, 60-minute version of Fiddler on the Roof Jr. to the Laxson stage. Featuring such classics as "If I Were A Rich Man," "Sunrise, Sunset," and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," this musical cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality, and religion with charm, humor, warmth, honesty, and universal appeal.
This performance is sponsored by Enloe Medical Center's Planetree patient-centered care program, and is performed by Blue Room Young Company
In hopes of furthering mind, body and spirit wellness though its Planetree patient-centered care program, Enloe Medical Center has teamed up with Chico Performances to bring the The Blue Room Young Company's version of Fiddler on the Roof Jr. to the Chico community.
This is the sixth year Chico Performances and Enloe Medical Center have partnered to bring live entertainment to the Chico area. Prior to their performance in Laxson Auditorium the young performers of Fiddler on the Roof Jr. will perform for elementary school students during two field trips, as well as appearing at Enloe Medical Center, where they will sing for patients and staff.
"It's just so great that we can help bring live performance to our patients and staff, as well so local students," said Traci Hunt, Planetree Coordinator for Enloe Medical Center. "It is through events like these that we and Chico Performances can learn and grow with the community."
This performance is supported, in part, by Enloe Medical Center, reflecting the Planetree philosophy that the arts and community are important aspects of a healing environment for everyone.
