Arizona Theatre Company is pleased to open their Golden Anniversary season with an epic production of the beloved musical Fiddler on the Roof.
Featuring a cast of 28, ATC’s first-ever production of Fiddler on the Roof is the largest production the company has produced in over 30 years. The musical features a host of classics including “To Life,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise, Sunset” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.” The original Broadway production opened in September 1964 and ran for a then-record 3,232 performances. It has been subsequently continuously produced in nearly every country in the world, bringing its timeless mix of rich drama, delightful wit, and timeless themes of faith to tens of millions.
Based on a series of stories by the great Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem, Fiddler On The Roof is set in the world of the Jewish Pale of Settlement in pre-Revolutionary Tsarist Russia in 1905. It is a richly heartwarming story about Tevye the milkman, Golde (his wife), and their five daughters as they wrestle with faith, love, prejudice, and Diaspora, all while holding firmly to their religious and social traditions.
