Directed by Mark Evans from the renowned Renaissance Theatre Company and MD Oscar Smith, singer and musician extraordinaire.
The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one's choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of their Jewish faith and heritage – and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.
Featuring such memorable songs as "Matchmaker Matchmaker," "Miracle of Miracles," and of course "If I were a rich man!"
With our largest ever cast of 50 and setting "in the round" the experience will be immersive and we aim to make the audience feel part of the show and experience the full emotions through the same highs and lows as the villagers.
