Fiddler on the Roof

The Music and Theatre Departments of East High School are pleased to present the Tony Award-Winning Musical, Fiddler on the Roof November 6th, 7th, and 8th at 7PM in the East Auditorium.

 Fiddler On the Roof follows the story of Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman and his five daughters as they experience life and love in their village of Anatevka in Tsarist Russia at the turn of the century. Tevye’s family must navigate the conflict of the “Tradition” of arranged marriages against the realities of falling in love- a balance that is as difficult to maintain as… a Fiddler on the Roof!

 Audience members will enjoy memorable musical highlights such as the opening “Tradition,” Tevye’s daughters singing their lamentations of love to the town’s infamous “Matchmaker,” Tevye daydreaming what life might be like “If I Were a Rich Man,” and the realization that life’s beautiful moments fly by us as quickly as “Sunrise, Sunset.”

Tickets for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights’ shows are $7 and can be purchased from any member of the cast, from Mrs. Self, or at the door. Fiddler on the Roof is presented through arrangements with Musical Theatre International. Music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein.
