The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will continue their 38th season with Fiddler on the Roof. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia.

  • Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish
  • Fr. Henry Purcell of Immaculate Conception-Dardenne Parish
  • Fr. Bill Wigand of Regina Cleri

Also performing will be dozens of talented grade school, teenage, and adult performers from 40 different parishes in the Archdiocese!

This year marks the group’s 38th anniversary of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.

Performance dates are:

  • Friday, July 21 at 7:30 pm
