Fiddler on the roof – The Play

The play was written by  Rusmir Agacevic.  Onetime a very popular tv host for kids from Sarajevo, he left Bosnia due to war. Now  works in SOS Children’s village Lekenik.  The play is  performed by children from the SOS village,  ages 8-10.  It was written entirely in rhymes, unique such work in the Balkans. Great way of introducing elements of Jewish identity to non-Jewish population, especially children.

Scenery was for the play drawn by kids from Jewish school in Zagreb.

The play was performed numerous times in Croatia, it was even invited to close the oldest children’s festival in Europe – The Šibenik children’s festival. The play was transformed into kids book – Fiddler on the roof.
