Winner of nine Tony awards, this classic musical by Jerry Bock (music), Sheldon Harnick (lyrics) and Joseph Stein (book) tells the story of Tevye, a Jewish dairyman in Imperial Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, who struggles to hold on to his religious and cultural traditions despite pressure to change. Perhaps the most powerful pull is that of his independent-minded daughters, who wish to choose their husbands, instead of abiding by the tradition of the matchmaker. Funny, sweet, beautiful and heartbreaking, this is a show for everyone!
Fiddler on the Roof will be performed December 9-11 and 16-18 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
