With nine Tony Awards and a historic, record-setting Broadway run, Fiddler on the Roof has been called "the greatest musical of all time." It has been performed the world over in nearly every language. Tevye, the indomitable milkman and father of five daughters, faces a rapidly changing world that challenges the traditions he cherishes and the faith that defines his life. Timeless songs – "If I Were a Rich Man," "Sabbath Prayer," and "Sunrise, Sunset" – underscore a universal story about family, love, and the struggle against oppression. Dennis Razze, associate artistic director who directed last season's acclaimed Oklahoma! will direct. Recommended for ages 6+
