Winner of eleven Tony Awards, including best musical, score, book, direction, and with a record-setting Broadway run, Fiddler has become an American classic.
It’s the story of Tevye, the loquacious father of five daughters, who fights to maintain his family and their traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with his strong-willed daughters—as each one’s choice of husband moves further from tradition—and with the edict of a tyrannical and unjust Tsar.
Online ticket sales begin on Wednesday, July 9, for FUMC Allen’s production of this Broadway classic, a production featuring a talented cast of 45 actors and a 30-piece orchestra. Enjoy such favorites as “Tradition,” “Matchmaker,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” and “If I Were a Rich Man.”
Tickets are $15 each.
The running time for Fiddler on the Roof is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes including one 20-minute intermission.
