Directed and Choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
Fiddler On The Roof is one of the most popular and beloved of all stage musicals. It's record breaking Broadway premiere firmly established it as a favourite with lovers of musical theatre where it remains to this day. This new production from the award winning producers of The King and I and High Society captures all the emotions of laughter and joy to tears and sadness - filled to the brim with memorable and instantly recognizable songs including If I Were a Rich Man, Matchmaker Matchmaker, Sunrise Sunset, To Life and many more.
Tevye, the local milkman in his village of Anatevka, has always stuck by his traditions but suddenly his head strong daughters decide that they want to marry for love rather than accept whatever Yente the Matchmaker comes up with. Tevye loves his daughters but has to convince his wife, and the villagers, that their decisions are actually falling in with tradition – not any easy thing to do but if anyone can do it, the wily Tevye can! Even if it means conjuring up ghosts of dead wives and scaring his own wife to bits in order to get her to agree. Tradition is all well and good but, in the end, the world moves on, as do the villagers but maybe not for the reasons they would have liked.
This new production is directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood, the nation’s favourite Strictly Come Dancingjudge and master of the musical stage.
Fiddler On The Roof was the longest running production on Broadway for over 13 years and when you join Tevye, his family and friends, you will understand why. This is a musical in a million – not to be missed!
