Stage Teens presents the Tony award-winning musical “Fiddler on the Roof” Thursday through Sunday at the Riverside Playhouse.
The music features a cast of 32 talented actors age 13-18 from Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Cashmere, Leavenworth, Chelan and Quincy participating in a summer acting program.

“Fiddler on the Roof” explores the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
With many beloved songs, it is a perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.
The cast includes Phoebe Amavisca, Isa Arredondo, Ethan Ashbaugh, Emma Banker, Muriel Barnes, Leiden Bronson, Ben Brownfield, Amie Canlis, Iona Canlis, Caleb Clifton, Whitney Clifton, Isaac Colyar, Matteah Davis, Katherine Dunlop, Quinn Escure, Kahlen Gilliver, Alanna Graves, Zoe Harrison, Olivia Jorgensen, Sophia Kinninger, Ariana Komro, Tyler Kunz, Campbell Lindholm, Jessi McIrvin, Carly Ostrem, Lulu Pray, Griffin Ruhl, Maggie Ryan, Dane Schmidt, Liam Schmidt, Maggie Stevens, Haley Taylor and Lucia Winterstein.
