Fiddler on the Roof
Tuesday 17th Febbruary  - Saturday 22nd February 2014


Fiddler on the Roof is one of the most popular and beloved of all stage musicals and one of Broadway’s longest-running of all time with a marathon run of over 13 years and over 3,000 performances from its premiere in 1964.
Tevye, the local milkman in his village of Anatevka, has always stuck by his traditions but suddenly his headstrong daughters decide that they want to marry for love rather than accept whatever Yente the Matchmaker comes up with. Tevye loves his daughters but has to convince his wife, and the villagers, that their decisions are actually falling in with tradition. Even if it means conjuring up ghosts of dead wives and scaring his own wife to bits in order to get her to agree. Tradition is all well and good but, in the end, the world moves on, as do the villagers but maybe not for the reasons they would have liked.
