This year Glendale Centre Theatre officially celebrates its 65th season as the longest, continually operating theatre in the United States. As their first musical of the season, they will present the universally loved, 9-time Tony Award winning musical Fiddler on the Roof February 9 through March 24.

One of the great works of the American musical theatre, Fiddler on the Roof features a book by Joseph Stein, and a score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick. Based on the stories of Sholom Alecheim and set in a small Ukrainian village during the early 1900’s, the book embraces the importance of tradition and the struggle of maintaining tradition in a rapidly changing world through its central character Tevye, a poor milkman and father of five daughters, whose life gets complicated as he seeks to find suitable husbands for them amidst the turmoil and political upheaval all around him.
