The enduring musical favorite comes to Oklahoma
One of the world's most enduring and best-loved musicals, Fiddler heads to Oklahoma Civic Center in a full-scale local production. A brand-new revival, audiences can expect to enjoy classic showtunes such as "Sunrise Sunset," "If I Were A Rich Man," and "Matchmaker" as you follow the adventures of poor Russian milkman Tevye. Also currently running on Broadway a full decade after its last engagement, why head up to the Big Apple when you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own city?
Set in Czarist Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, everything is in a state of flux and near-revolution. The creeping tendrils of upheaval are starting to affect family life,even working-class Tevye the Milkman and his three daughters; change is in the air as he sees the effect on his family and the potential hard choices they must make to survive.
The story in particular focuses on the eldest child Tzeitel, who as a working class woman has few prospects for a good marriage; however she finds herself caught between the attentions of a bitter butcher, and love for a poor tailor. What ensues is a story of rebellion, love and redemption against a growing background of societal violence, where our downtrodden family finally find the life that they deserve.
