An amateur production by arrangement with MTI (Europe)
The Musical Theatre Performance Company is very proud to present this multi-award winning show that has previously been described as “a defiant portrait of Jewish resilience”. Brought to you by the same team that produced ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ in their 2018/19 season.
Winner of 9 Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler On The Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, songwriters Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, and bookwriter Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humour, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon.
Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colourful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instil them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, ‘Fiddler On The Roof’’s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
