John Huntington stars as Tevye, with original New York stage production directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins.  Huntington is not only a Saddleback College vocal professor but also one of California’s premier musical theatre artists. Directed by Myrona DeLaney with choreography by Ellen Prince and musical direction by Gary Busby, this important musical is about parenting as well as themes of societal polarization.

In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. 

Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness
