Post Accent for the Guy Parts....
Here's what I'm thinking as far as accents go for the male roles:

Tevye-Heavy accent
Motel-Mild accent
Perchik-None

Anybody else's input is appreciated, because auditions are coming up....

I think the use accents is something that is generally decided on from production to production. However, I see no reason why Motel and Perchik should have different accents.

Personally I'd keep it as light as possible. I'm playing Tevye and I'm doing only a mild Yiddish accent. It's not the accent that defines the character.

Fyedka should have a light Russian accent (Raymond Lovelock in the movie did). The Rabbi and his son Mendel should also have noticeable accents; for others (Lazar Wolf, other Jewish men, Constable, other Russians) it's probably optional.
