The unmistakable image of a Fiddler on the Roof…a metaphor for balancing life, for survival and for tradition. This is the story of Tevye, a simple and loving milkman, who does everything he can to maintain his family and their religious traditions. But despite his best efforts, with five strong-willed daughters, a loyal yet independent wife and an ever-changing society, the safety and stability of his old world is disappearing.
A journey of love, loss, faith and family, Fiddler on the Roof is a celebration of life and all its challenges. From the rich orchestrations and beautiful score to the powerful production numbers and emotionally-charged story, this is the show everyone should experience.
This show is Rated G.
Run Time: 2 hours and 35 minutes (includes 15 minute intermission)
