Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof is a much loved story, set in 1905 in the small, tradition-steeped Jewish village of Anatevka, Russia. During the course of the show, the time-honoured traditions of Anatevka are both embraced and challenged by dairyman Tevye and his colourful community, as they witness his daughters, Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava, grow up and fall in love in a time of change in Russia. 

It is the love and humour woven through the story that has filled audiences with hope, faith, charity and warmth for generations, and keeps this story alive today.
