Kate Lochte speaks with Playhouse in the Park Director Lisa Cope, Pam Rockwell who plays Golde (Tevye's wife), and one of the fiddlers, Gracie Wallace about the production. The play opens this weekend, and runs through June 16. <a href="http://www.playhouseinthepark.net/">See how to get tickets at PlayhouseinthePark.net</a>.&nbsp;</p><p> Tue, 28 May 2013 21:23:35 +0000 Kate Lochte 31790 at http://wkms.org Playhouse in the Park Presents: "Fiddler on the Roof" "Explore Kentucky's Diverse Fiddling Traditions" at MCLIB's 'Evenings Upstairs' http://wkms.org/post/explore-kentuckys-diverse-fiddling-traditions-mclibs-evenings-upstairs <p>MCLIB's next Evenings Upstairs program on March 21 at 7 pm is titled "Explore Kentucky's Diverse Fiddling Traditions."
