Spring Musical: Fiddler on the Roof 

Music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein
Based on Tevye and his Daughters and other tales by Sholem Aleichem
Directed by Michelle Haner, with Musical Direction by Philip Lenberg and Vocal Direction by Melinda Becker

Set in a small Jewish community in Russia in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof tells the story of a poor Jewish dairyman, Tevya, and his family. This classic musical features a beloved score and offers a prism through which to explore themes of tradition and change, of deep roots and sudden exile. It captures how the routines, relationships, beliefs and dreams of the individual can be shaped, challenged, buffeted - and even upended - by forces beyond one’s control. 

Performances will be on March 21, 23, 27 and 29 at 7:00pm and March 25 at 2:00pm.

Pre-Show Events
To expand the reach and reflection of the piece, Assistant Director Adam Teich has organized a pre-show salon series, with talks by Yedida Kanfer of the JFCS Holocaust Center (on themes of exile, faith, and resilience) and Deborah Eliezer of foolsFURY Theater company (on the broader theme of diaspora and exile). Yedida Kanfer will speak pre-show, at 6:15 on Tuesday, March 27 and Deborah Eliezer, pre-show at 1:15 on Sunday, March 25.
