Emmaus High School Theater Department presents Fiddler on the Roof.
Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, Fiddler on the Roof is a staple of the musical theater canon. Since this universally acclaimed show opened on Broadway in 1964, it has been performed every day somewhere in the world. Set in 1905 in the small Russian village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tightly-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 Tsarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion. The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theater. With iconic and beloved songs such as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.
Fiddler on the Roof will be performed from March 29 through April 1 at 7:00 PM, and April 1 and 2 at 2:00 PM in the Emmaus High School Auditorium. We invite you to attend our show to enjoy an affordable evening of theater, and to see that your support is going to a group of very dedicated young artists.

During the run of our show, we will be working to raise funds for ADL, a group that fights all forms of antisemitism and bias. They are a global leader in combating antisemitism, countering extremism, and battling bigotry wherever and whenever it happens. Please consider donating as you exit the auditorium during intermission or after the show. No donation is too small. Thank you for your support!
