About this show

Set in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof takes place in Anatevka, a small Jewish village in Russia. The story revolves around the dairyman Tevye and his attempts to preserve his family's traditions in the face of a changing world.

When his eldest daughter, Tzeitel, begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter's happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other forces at work in Anatevka, dangerous forces which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve. With music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, the exhilarating score features Broadway favorites such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and "To Life." Bill Pullinsi directs.
