Get set for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF at NTC this spring! One of the most popular musicals in history, FIDDER ON THE ROOF is the story of family, love, change and tradition. Directed by Pat Nims (2013 BroadwayWorld SF Best Director), and choreographed by Kate Kenyon, this production brings new life and inspired vision to beloved FIDDLER classics like Sunrise Sunset, If I Were A Rich Man, Matchmaker, To Life and many more.

Set in the Imperial Russia in 1905, FIDDLER is based on the stories of Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—and each one’s choice of husband—and with mounting persecution of Jews by the Tsar.

The original Broadway production of the show, which opened in 1964, had the first musical theatre run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. Fiddler held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards, winning nine, including Best Musical, score, book, direction and choreography. It spawned four Broadway revivals, a highly successful 1971 film adaptation, and the show has enjoyed enduring international popularity.
