Why see Fiddler on the Roof?

If I were a rich man...

It's 1905 and Russia is changing all around Tevye and his family. From Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stien, Fiddler on the Roof is the story of how standing by our values and religious traditions sometimes means changing the way we look at the entire world.

Based on the novel by Sholem Aleichem, Fiddler on Roof first premiered on Broadway in 1964, before going on to be adapted into an eight-time Academy Award-nominated movie. Since then it has become a standard of American musical theatre, and the hilarious story elicits positive responses wherever it is played.

What is the story?

At the turn of the 20th Century, Russia is a country on the brink of revolution. Although the chaos seems to seldom touch the isolated family of Tevye the Milkman, he sees the effect on his three elder daughters and the lives that they choose the lead.

Tzeitel, the oldest has little prospects for a poor woman, when the widowed and ancient butcher Lazar Wolf shows interest in her whilst she pines for the poor tailor Motel, it begins a story of rebellion, violence, love and acceptance that finds Tevye and the family learning to leave behind their old lives and start a new one full of hope and laughter!
