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.
