Fiddler on the Roof in rehearsal; Tickets on sale soon
Show Dates: April 25-28, May 2-5 and May 9-12
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his
tight-knit Jewish community 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
has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty.
The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality
and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. Fiddler
on the Roof features songs loved the world over: "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a
Rich Man" and "Matchmaker," to name a few.
This amazing show with book by Joseph Stein, music by Jerry Bock and the lyrics
of Sheldon Harnick, based on the stories of Sholem Aleichem, has graced the
stages of towns large and small for decades. This will be the second time for
Fiddler on the Roof to be produced at FFP, as it was originally produced in 1979.
Director Aeryn Williams, choreographer Tara Laciano and musical director Zach
Thomas have assembled the cast and rehearsals have begun. Vickie Lopez and
Samantha Henry, co-producers are hard at work assembling and assisting the
crews who are already busy behind the scenes.
