Fiddler on the Roof is a beloved classic, and strangely enough, this is the first time we've ever done it! The year is 1905, in the Russian Jewish village of Anatevka, where everyone lives according to the traditions of the past.  But times have begun to change.  Tevye, the simple, hardworking dairyman, must decide what to do when his daughters wish to marry for love rather than have the village’s matchmaker choose their husbands for them.  Each choice his children make pushes Tevye farther from what his heart and his religion will allow.  And there are darker things on the horizon – it is rumored that Jews have begun to be forced from their villages by the Russian authorities.  Somehow, Tevye and his neighbors must redefine themselves and find a place in this new and different world, where their existence feels as shaky as...well, as a fiddler on the roof.
