This hit Broadway musical retrospective celebrates the life and times of Ellie Greenwich, whose doo wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the sixties charts. The story of Ellie's rise to fame and fortune is punctuated with the virtual Hit Parade of her music: "Chapel of Love," "Da Do Ron Ron," "Be My Baby," "Hanky Panky," Do Wah Diddy," "And Then He Kissed Me" and, of course, the title song.

The Past Summer's Production of Fiddler on the Roof -
Dedicated to the Memory of
Our fiddler - who brought light
into everyone's life!
Jessie M. Blodgett, age 19, of Hartford, passed away unexpectedly Monday, July 15, 2013. Jessie was the cherished daughter of Buck and Joy Blodgett.
After the death of their fellow cast member, the cast of Fiddler on the Roof dedicated their Friday, July 19th show to Jessie Blodgett.
Out of remembrance for Blodgett, a candle was placed on the spot where, less than a week ago, she played her violin solo.
She graduated Hartford Union High School in 2012, and attended UWM in 2013. Jessie had just accepted a distinguished Talent Scholarship from the School of Music Education, as well as a campus job mentoring disadvantaged inner city university students. She was extremely proud of her new business; teaching 28 young Hartford students voice, piano, and violin lessons. She also volunteered every summer at the Central Middle School Orchestra summer program. Jessie was a fierce advocate for male against female violence, social justice, sustainable living, and environmentalism.
Jessie played the fiddler with the Hartford Players in Fiddler on the Roof for the first three performances.
The director of the ‘Fiddler’ production, Jerry Becker, originally considered canceling the rest of the performances – but at the request of Jessie’s family – dedicated the remaining performances to her memory.
“We loved her certainly as a member of our theatrical family but she was a member of their real family so their thoughts had to be first,” Becker said.
In the lobby of the theater, the cast took donations for two organizations – the Central Middle School Orchestra and a charity that combats male on female violence.
She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, fellow students and all who knew her.
Most of our productions are priced as seen below (not including dinner theater).
