The Tony Award nominated Broadway revival of “Fiddler on the Roof” is coming to the Wharton Center Dec. 4-9. This story revolves around Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his pursuit to keep their Jewish traditions alive.

A beloved theatrical classic by Joseph Stein and Pulitzer Prize winners Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, “Fiddler on the Roof” is directed by Bartlett Sher; choreographed by the acclaimed Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter; inspired by the original choreography of Jerome Robbins; and has musical direction by Ted Sperling.

The original Broadway production, which opened in 1964, was the first musical in history to surpass 3,000 performances. The show won the 1965 Tony Award for Best Musical in addition to eight other Tony Awards that year.

The musical has scenic design by Michael Yeargan, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Donald Holder, sound design by Scott Lehrer and hair and wig design by Tom Watson.

Tickets are available at Wharton Center.
