This special adaptation of the 9-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof JR. follows the village milkman Tevye, as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life in his tight-knit Jewish community from a changing world. Tradition is important to Tevye as he and his family in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.

Out of the mouths of children, Fiddler on the Roof JR. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class nationality, and religion.

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that “Anything can happen if you let it.”
