‘Fiddler’ comes to GPAC December 7
“Fiddler on the Roof”comes to the Givens Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, December 7 at 8 p.m. as part of the Broadway and More Series. The show is a remarkable journey traveling through secret love, forbidden betrothal, weddings, devotion and forgiveness, tempered by rejection, oppression and imminent revolution. Emerging through it all, we find humor, strength and perseverance. Based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem, “Fiddler on the Roof” has been lauded by critics again and again, and won the hearts of people all around the world. Filled with a rousing, heartwarming score, which includes “Tradition,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I Were A Rich Man” and “Sunrise, Sunset,” “Fiddler on the Roof” is a timeless classic. Without our traditions, our lives would be as shaky as a...”Fiddler on the Roof!”
