Fiddler on the Roof

Fiddler on the Roof Entertainment fans, get your diaries out because pupils at the High School of Dundee are putting on a spectacle that you won’t want to miss!

Following their sell-out production of Les Misérables in 2016, senior pupils are getting ready to perform another spellbinding show in the form of the musical, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’.

Set in the Pale of Settlement of Imperial Russia in 1905, the story centres on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions during a time of political and social change. He must cope with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love, with each one's choice of a husband moving further away from the customs of his faith.

Head of Drama, Lindsay Drummond, said, “With the ever-present threat of displacement and forced migration, Fiddler on the Roof has a contemporary and poignant relevancy which should resonate with audiences.

“Musical numbers such as ‘If I Were A Rich Man’, ‘Tradition’, ‘Matchmaker’ and ‘Sunrise,Sunset’ remind us why this is such an enduring and iconic musical.”

Based on the book by Joseph Stein, and featuring music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, the production, which is open to the public, will run at the Gardyne Theatre from Wednesday 20 June until Saturday 23 June.

Tickets are on sale now at Dundee Box Office and High School pupils and families will also be able to obtain tickets from the School after the Easter holidays.
