Fiddler on the Roof

Student Matinee Performance: February 24th at 10:00am

A staple of the musical theatre canon and winner of nine Tony Awards, Fiddler on the Roof touches audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty.

 

Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social morals and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical detail, Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

 

Featuring the iconic character of Tevye - among the most memorable roles in musical theatre - and beloved songs such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.


Run Time: Approximately 100 minutes.

Recommended for students in grade 4+
