Ovation Performing Arts Presents Fiddler on the Roof
Coming this December, Ovation Performing Arts presents its theater production of Fiddler on the Roof! Set in the little village of Anatevka, Fiddler on the Roof centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, 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, and featuring iconic and beloved songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” Fiddler on the Roof, has won nine Tony Awards since its 1964 debut, and become a core staple of the musical theatre canon.
Additional showing today at 2:00 p.m.
