October 3, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – In a casting feat worthy of a matchmaker's nod of approval, Drayton Entertainment is thrilled to announce the return of Artistic Director Alex Mustakas to the stage, bringing to life the cherished character Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof this holiday season, at the Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge from November 29 to December 24.
Following his last performance, in the 2018 production of Man of La Mancha, Alex will be trading in Don Quixote’s lance for a milk cart as he takes centre stage again as Fiddler on the Roof’s beloved patriarch.
“I've always had a bucket list of roles I wanted to play, and Tevye was right at the top,” says Mustakas. “I’m excited to be back on stage and bringing this iconic theatrical figure to life.”
In addition to the role of Don Quixote, Alex has appeared in many other notable roles, including The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, Franklin Hart Jr. in 9 To 5: The Musical, Captain Hook in Peter Pan: The Panto, Nick in Over The River and Through The Woods, and many more. Alex has directed over 100 productions for Drayton Entertainment and other theatre companies across Canada, including Rock of Ages, The Crooner, We’ll Meet Again, It Runs in the Family, Sorry, I’m Canadian 2, You’ll Get Used To It! ... The War Show, Rocky: The Musical, Million Dollar Quartet, the world premiere of Marathon of Hope, Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Spamalot, Les Misérables, Twist & Shout, and others.
Fiddler on the Roof tells the story of Tevye, a humble milkman whose life has been governed by strict traditions that will never change…until he selects suitors for his daughters and discovers that the younger generation will create traditions of their own. Featuring an unforgettable score of classic songs like “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “If I Were A Rich Man,” Fiddler on the Roof has ensured a legacy as one of the most acclaimed musicals in history.
