Tradition! Abounds in Fiddler on the Roof
The Center Theatre Whittier (Whittier, CA)
Whittier Community Theatre presents Fiddler on the Roof for its early fall production. One of the most beloved stage musicals of all time — and the winner of an impressive nine Tony Awards — the show, set in 1905, centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman who tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish village (shtetl) in the face of changing social values and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. The lush score is filled with such unforgettable songs as “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “Sunrise, Sunset” and “To Life.” It’s a timeless tale of love and learning to cope with an ever-changing world.
