Play honors the 40th anniversary of the Fiddler on the Roof film shoot

SOS Children's Village Lekenik children from the Little Fairy Tale Theatre performed in a play by Rusmir Agačević. Little actors delighted the audience with their take on Fiddler on the Roof.

Branko Lustig, the famous Croatian film-maker and Academy Award Winner, was the guest of honor at the ceremony held in Lekenik at several locations where one of the best Hollywood musicals ever, Fiddler on the Roof, was shot. To mark the 40th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof, a documentary film about the period and Lekenik dwellers who were actors and extras in the movie is currently in production.
 

Children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik are also celebrating this anniversary. Their Little Fairy Tale Theatre is performing a play Fiddler on the Roof, to the acclaim of everyone who has seen it. In the cast are Kristina, Petra, Diana, Marina, Martin and Nikola-Aleksandra, all children from the SOS Children's Village Lekenik. The poetic text that underscores the events in the movie was written by the author Rusmir Agačević, who also heads creative workshops in SOS Children's Village Social Centre. He also directed this short play. Highly effective stage illustrations are the work of Neda Mrđan, the art instructor at the elementary school Lauder-Hugo Kon in Zagreb.
 

Attending the ceremony on behalf of Association SOS Children's Village Croatia were Lea Sokolić, member of the SOS Children's Village Croatia Board of Directors, Višnja Tuškan-Krupić, SOS Children's Village Croatia national director, and Mario Čović, director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik.
