Fiddler

 

Director/Choreographer   Carol Thompson

Musical Director                    Elizabeth Cooper

Based on Sholom Aleichem’s ‘Tevye and his Daughters’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ is the beloved story of the small, tradition-steeped town of Anatevka, Russia, where Jews and Russians live in delicate balance.

During the course of the show, the time honoured traditions of Anatevka are both embraced and challenged by Tevye and his colourful community, as they witness his daughters, Tzeitel, Hodel and Chava, grow up and fall in love in a time of extraordinary change.

‘Fiddler on the Roof’, in its Broadway première, became the longest-running Broadway musical in history, a title it maintained for almost ten years. It is a story that captures the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, family, and meaning. ‘Fiddler’ features such iconic songs as the beautiful “Sunrise, Sunset,” the boisterous “If I Were a Rich Man”, and the classic “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”
