Fiddler on the Roof

1905,  Czarist Russia….


Fiddler on the Roof is set in the impoverished peasant town of Anatevka which is largely populated by hard-working Jewish families. One family is that of Tevye, the dairyman, a pious man with five daughters. As the story unfolds, the traditions of Tevye's ancestors begin to unravel as his three older daughters assert their independence and government troops brutally force Tevye and his fellow villagers from their homes. Inspired by the works of Sholom Aleichem, Fiddler on the Roof takes us on a journey of love, laughter, devotion, defiance and changing traditions.
