THE WONDERFUL STORY OF "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF"
RETURNS TO BROWARD CENTER
Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, and still touching audiences with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a true example of musical theatre.
Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman with five daughters, explains the customs of the Jews in the Russian shtetl of Anatevka in 1905. Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill in them the traditional values in the face of changing social values and the growing ant-Semitism
of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the
Roof's universal theme of tradition, cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
At Tevye’s home, everyone is busy preparing for the Sabbath meal. His sharp-tongued wife Golde, orders their daughters, Tzeitel, Hodel, Chava, Shprintze and Bielke about their tasks. Yente, the village matchmaker, arrives to tell Golde that Lazer Wolfe, the wealthy butcher, a widower older than Tevye wants to marry Tzeitel, the eldest daughter.
The next two daughters, Hodel and Chava, are excited about Yente’s visit, but Tzeitel is not enthusiastic. A girl from a poor family must take whatever husband Yente brings, but Tzeitel wants to marry her childhood friend Motel the tailor. One night Tevye in bed with Golde, pretends he was awakened by a nightmare. He describes his dream to Golde, as such.
Golde’s grandmother Tzeitel returns from her grave to bless the marriage of her namesake, but to Motel, not to Lazar Wolf. The superstitious Golde is terrified, and she quickly counsels that Tzeitel must marry Motel.
Follow the Family of Golde, Tevye and their daughters through all their trials and tribulations including so many wonderful songs such as “Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match,” “If I Were A Richman,” “To Life,” “Miracles of Miracles,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” and more.
