Richland Senior High presents Fiddler on the Roof! Come join the members of Richland Performing Arts Center at Richland High School as grades 9-12 put on the classic show “Fiddler on the Roof!” The shows will be February 19 and 20 at 7 pm and February 21 at 2 pm.
A musical theatre tradition, Tevye the milkman tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world. Winner of 9 TONY Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler On The Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, songwriters Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, and bookwriter Joseph Stein. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon. Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, 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.The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theatre. With iconic and beloved songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” Fiddler On The Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.
