This summer, the Curve Young Company and Community team bring Joseph Stein’s life-affirming musical Fiddler on the Roof to the stage.
Meet Tevye the milkman, his long-suffering wife and five strong-minded daughters living in the small village of Anatevka, Russia. In a rapidly changing world on the brink of revolution, this tight-knit, tradition-steeped Jewish community live in a delicately balanced society where time-honoured traditional values are challenged by the changing social views and growing anti-semitism of Czarist Russia.
When his daughters decide they want to marry for love instead of accepting possible suitors, Teyve must convince his wife, the elders and the whole village that to marry for love is the greatest tradition of them all.
Directed by Sarah Ingram (Curve’s Oklahoma!, 2017), Jerome Robbins’ iconic original choreography reproduced by Curve’s Head of Learning Melanie Knott and featuring a company of over 100 local people, Fiddler on the Roof contains some of the most memorable songs in musical theatre history, including Tradition, Matchmaker and the unforgettable If I Were A Rich Man.
