Fiddler on the Roof meets an Archaeological Dig

I am excavating at Khirbet Qeiyafa in Israel, but am also in the cast of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Florida about four weeks from now. “Fiddler” is about a Jewish community trying to hold on to its traditions in the revolutionary fervor of 1905 Russia. It’s one of my favorite shows and, amid the humor and songs, holds profound spiritual lessons.

For those familiar with the show, I am playing the role of Lazar Wolfe. So how does one prepare for such a role while doing archaeology? The (somewhat-lighthearted) video below demonstrates one way to do this.

If you live anywhere near the Tampa area, come out and see the production on July 26 or 27. We even have lunch/dinner show options. There are advantages to ordering your tickets now. Visit Broadway Comes to Camp for information and ticket orders.
