Composer Jerry Bock and lyricist Sheldon Harnick teamed up with librettist Joseph Stein to create this timeless classic musical, magically woven with universal themes, music, dance, poignancy, and laughter.
"Fiddler on the Roof" is based on "Tevye and His Daughters" and other tales by Sholem Aleichem that he wrote in Yiddish and published in 1894. Set in 1905, the musical takes place in Anatevka, a small Jewish village in Russia. The story revolves around the dairyman, Tevye, and his attempts to preserve his family's traditions in the face of a changing world.
In this production, Tevye the dairyman is brought to life by Bill Nolte. His wife Golde will be played by Emily Zacharias. The daughters are Rachel Prather (Tzeitel), Sarah Rolleston (Hodel), Dana Glaus (Chava), and local children Gianna Florio and Julia Gold, who will alternate as Bielke, and Samantha Robins and Shannon Stout who will alternate as Shprintze. Terry Palasz is the meddling Matchmaker, Yente. The girls' suitors are Andrew Boza as Motel the tailor, Eric Johnson as the butcher, Lazar Wolfe, Joe Longthorne as the student revolutionary, Perchik, and Chris Giordano as Fyedka, the Russian Cossack. The cast also features Michael J. Farina as Mordcha the Innkeeper, Drew Martin as the Rabbi, Benjamin Dean as Mendel, Stephen Tewksbury as the constable, Lucas Thompson as Nachum, and Stephen Valenti as Avram.
