FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

fiddler on the roof at chocolate factoryThe Menier Chocolate Factory has just announced a new staging of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, which will run there over the Christmas period from 23rd November 2018 - 9th March 2019 with casting news still to follow.

TREVOR NUNN will direct the production which has a book by JOSEPH STEIN, lyrics by SHELDON HARNIC and music by JERRY BOCK.

Fiddler on the Roof was the longest running production on Broadway for over 13 years and is full of instantly recognizable songs including If I Were a Rich Man, Matchmaker Matchmaker and  Sunrise Sunset.

It tells the story of Tevye who is being played by ANDY NYMAN (originally played in the UK by Topol) who is the local milkman in his village of Anatevka. He has always stuck by his traditions but suddenly his headstrong daughters decide that they want to marry for love rather than accept whatever Yente the Matchmaker comes up with. 

Tevye loves his daughters but has to convince his wife and the villagers that their decisions are actually falling in with tradition – not any easy thing to do. Tradition is all well and good, but in the end the world moves on, as do the villagers - but maybe not for the reasons they intended.

Further casting includes JUDY KUHN as Tevye's sharp-tongued wife., MOLLY OSBOURNE as Tzeitel the oldest daughter, HARRIET BUNTON as Hodel his intelligent and spirited middle daughter, KIRSTY MACLAREN as Chava his shy book loving youngest daughter , DERMOT CANAVAN as Lazar Wolf the Butcher, JOSHUA GANNON as Motel Kamzoil, a poor but hardworking tailor, MATT CORNER as Christian Fyedka - Chava's eventual husband, STEWART CLARKE as Perchik a scholar and Bolshevik revolutionary and LOUISE GOLD as the gossipy village matchmaker Yente. Joining them will be Miles Barrow, Sofia Bennett, Dermot Canavan, Lottie Casserley,Lia Cohen, Matt Corner, Shoshana Ezequiel, Fenton Gray,James Hameed, Matthew Hawksley, Matilda Hopkins, Ellie Mullane, Craig Pinder & Valentina Theodoulou.
