The Fresh Prince of Anatevka

For anyone who’s ever been in a high school theatre production of Fiddler on the Roof, or any other play for that matter, you know that what happens backstage is just as memorable as the show itself. This Fiddler parody captures all the antics of life behind the curtain, masterfully put together with an inventive plot summary of the play. Unlike most Fiddler parodies on YouTube, however, this one stands out for its use of a melody that comes not from the show itself, but from the theme song of the 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Dancing around in costume amidst the makeshift dressing rooms of their school, these kids capture the spirit and passion of youth theatre and seamlessly blend pop culture references new and old.
