Fiddler on the Roof has captured the hearts of audiences throughout the world with its universal appeal.  The production is under the direction of CLP’s Artistic Director Marina Johnson. Music Direction is provided by Patricia Jimenez.

A timeless classic, Fiddler on the Roof features a score by Jerry Bock (music) and Sheldon Harnick (lyrics), with a book by Joseph Stein, based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem.  One of the beloved musical scores in the history of the American theatre includes “Tradition,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” and “Sunrise, Sunset.

An audience favorite nearly 50 years after its stage debut, very few musicals have so magically woven music, dance, poignancy and laughter into such an unforgettable experience. Produced by Harold Prince, directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins, and starring Zero Mostel, Fiddler on the Roof opened at Broadway’s Imperial Theatre September 22, 1964, where it experienced unprecedented success running 3,264 performances and winning nine Tony Awards.  The musical received international attention thanks to the 1971 United Artists motion picture adaptation featuring Topol.  In 1991 and 2004, Fiddler on the Roof was revived on Broadway and received even more Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical (1991) Best Orchestrations (2004) and nominations in 2004 for Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actor.

Fiddler on the Roof will be presented at Cresson Lake Playhouse opening Thursday June 20 through July 7, 2013.  Performances Tuesday through Saturday at 8pm and Sunday Matinees June 23 and June 30 at 2pm. Tickets Adults $17 and Student under 18 - $10.
