Eddie Mekka may best be known for his role as Carmine Ragusa in "Laverne and Shirley."

But the actor has been in many movies and TV shows, and he's also an accomplished stage performer, traveling to theaters across the country.

Starting Tuesday, he will appear in the West Virginia Public Theatre production of "Fiddler on the Roof" at 8 p.m. at the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre at the WVU Creative Arts Center. The show runs from Tuesday-Aug. 2.

After "Laverne and Shirley," Mekka made appearances in "The Love Boat," "Fantasy Island," "Moonlighting," "The New Rockford Files," "Family Matters" and "The Jamie Foxx Show." He played Grady in "Guiding Light" and also spent time on the set of "Sunset Beach."
