This rousing musical, based on the stories of Shalom Aleichem, takes place in pre-revolutionary Russia and centers on the life of Tevye, a milkman, trying to keep his family's traditions in place while marrying off his three older daughters.

Yet times are changing, and the daughters want to make their own matches, breaking free of many of the constricting customs required of them by Judaism. In the background of these events, Russia is on the brink of revolution, and Jews are feeling increasingly unwelcome in their own villages.

FEATURING:  Mike Galizia as Tevye and Amy Bell as Golde, with:  Bob Ahrens, John Aquila, Emily Biondi, Lucas Blake, Lillian Blank, Alexa Canelos, Julia Capizzi, Matthew Feldman, Peggy Friedman, Isa Guitian, Jamil Johnson, Grace LaCount, Larry Levinson, Justin McMonagle, Barbara Pinker, Evangeline Ridgaway, Alex Shade, Lisa Sharpe, Sebastian Stefanovic, Jose Reyes Teneza, Mike Throne, Vince Vuono and Suzanne Young.
