Chesham Musical Theatre Company – present Fiddler on the Roof – April 10th to 13th

Chesham Musical Theatre Company is proud to present Fiddler on the Roof, the gem from Broadway’s Golden Age of musicals

Tevye the dairyman must find suitable husbands for his daughters and has ongoing respectful debates with the God. Fiddler appeals to our core values and reflects the frustrations between parents and children and the reaction to change and persecution of the times.  Dramatic and emotive, but also very funny, the show is a wonderful portrayal of Jewish life and love in the early 1900s.

Fiddler is a celebration of life and its challenges. Trying to balance life – like a fiddler on a roof – Tevye attempts to hold onto his traditions despite sweeping social change that is upsetting his family values while threatening his town’s very existence and is based on Sholem Aleichem stories with Book by Joseph Stein, Music by Jerry Bock and Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick.

Fiddler on the Roof first appeared on Broadway in 1964 and swept the Tony’s with nine “Best” awards including Best Musical for a score that features “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” and “Do You Love Me.”

Chesham Musical Theatre Company prides itself on high quality productions making local theatre accessible to all.  CMTC has won many major NODA awards over the years.

Chesham Musical Theatre Company is presenting “Fiddler on the Roof” by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).  Tickets via, the show runs nightly at 7.30pm from Wednesday April 10th to Saturday 13th April, with matinee Saturday and Sunday 14th April at the Elgiva, Chesham. Tickets priced at £18 (£16 concessions)
