The excitement is mounting as we close in on opening night of this year's ALCS Drama production of Fiddler on the Roof.
This beloved American classic was the winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964 and has become musical theatre tradition. This highly engaging musical is infused with humor, warmth, and honesty. You'll leave the show humming such classic songs as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and so many more!
Fiddler on the Roof is set in the little village of Anatevka and the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill 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. Learn more about Fiddler on the Roof HERE for the full synopsis. Age-appropriateness: depending on the reviewer, some say Fiddler on the Roof is appropriate for 7 and up while others say 10 an d up; ALCS recommends that each parent should read the synopsis and consider the content in determining the appropriateness of the musical for one's own younger children as you know your children best.
