Directed by Gordy Handeland

Set in the little village of Antevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. The universal theme of tradition cuts across race, class, nationality, and religion barriers, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy, and sadness. The show features iconic and beloved songs such as “Tradition,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”
