The Theatre Guild Committee are proud to present our 2013 production, “Fiddler on the Roof”. The show was chosen by popular vote of the members back in January 2012 and promises to be a hit with our audience, too! With a classic score, a dramatic storyline, diverse principal roles and and a cracking production team on board this show promises to be one of our greats!!
The original Broadway production of the show, which opened in 1964, had the first musical theatre run in history to surpass 3,000 performances. Fiddler held the record for the longest-running Broadway musical for almost 10 years until Grease surpassed its run. It remains Broadway’s fifteenth longest-running show in history. The production was extraordinarily profitable and highly acclaimed. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards, winning nine, including Best Musical, score, book, direction and choreography. It spawned four Broadway revivals, a successful 1971 film adaptation, and the show has enjoyed enduring international popularity.
Theatre Guild last performed this show in 1972 and the Committee and members of Theatre Guild felt that it was long overdue a revival!
