One of the world’s most loved shows returns to Sydney’s south in March when Rockdale Musical Society presents Fiddler On The Roof.
The all-time record-breaking Broadway musical returns to the Rockdale Town Hall with a superb cast, headed by multi-award-winning entertainer Adam Scicluna in the lead role of Tevye.
Based on Sholom Aleichem’s Tevye and his daughters, Fiddler On The Roof is the beautiful story of the small, traditional town of Anatevka, where Jews and Russians live in a delicate balance.
Through the eyes of the endearingly philosophical Tevye – a father of five daughters – audiences watch as he defends and then is forced to challenge the time-honoured traditions of his village.
In a time riddled with conflict, we see his daughters grow up and fall in love and his community of loveable, colourful characters endure and adapt to a new world.
Its famous songs include If I Were a Rich Man, Tradition, L’Chaim (To Life) and so many more…
Rich in historical and cultural detail, Fiddler On The Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humour, warmth and honesty.
Its universal themes of tradition, love and the challenges of modernity cut across barriers of identity, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences weeping tears of sadness, laughter and joy.
Adam Scicluna is a multi-award- winning entertainer having been honoured with the Australian Entertainment Mo award; Peter Allen Performer of the Year (2013), the Australian Club Entertainment Award and Male Vocal Performer of the Year.
Directed by Colin and Bob Peet, with musical direction from Peter Sampson and choreography by Chris Bamford, the cast also features Charmaine Gibbs as Golde (fresh from her star turn as Anna in The King and I for RMS), Cathy Boyle as Yente the matchmaker, Paul Adderley as Lazar Wolf the butcher, Veronica Clavijo, Emilie Davila and Isabella McIntosh as Tevye’s three eldest daughters.
There are dozens more superb performers in an all-singing, all-dancing ensemble that celebrates life in all its richness. L’Chaim!
Fiddler On The Roof plays March 2-11, Thursday to Saturday at 8pm, plus 2pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday, at the Rockdale Town Hall.
