Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.

Rehearsals will begin in mid-January and be held 2 - 3 times a week (Sunday afternoon/evening - Thursday evening). Beginning Sunday, March 8th, rehearsals will be every day leading up to Opening Night.
