Fiddler on the Roof

July 5th - July 8th 2018


More than 50 years since its Broadway debut, the universal themes of Fiddler on the Roof continue to resonate with audiences of all generations and all cultures.

About the Show

This story of Tevye’s struggle to balance his rigid faith-based traditions with his hidden desire to let his daughters follow their hearts touches on values that are still relevant today. Love, pride and faith help Tevye face the oppression czarist Russia, where their lives are as precarious as the perch of a fiddler on a roof.

Fiddler on the Roof is one of the 16 longest-running shows in the history of Broadway. In July 2018 Bendigo Theatre Company will stage this beautifully written musical at the Ulumbarra Theatre complete with a live orchestra.

“In much the same way that “The Diary of Anne Frank” is not just a Jewish story, neither is “Fiddler on the Roof.” “Fiddler’s” strong themes of tradition, repression, prejudice and diaspora continue to evoke common ground for audiences — wherever they are. The well-crafted book and memorable songs don’t hurt, of course, but they are augmented by a plot that has something for everyone, whether it’s the importance of family, friction between generations or the difficult choices that accompany emigration and assimilation.” Barbara Isenberg, Los Angeles Times
