The Barn Theatre proudly presents the beloved musical FIDDLER ON THE ROOF starring Robert Newman! Opening June 18, the classic tale of family, faith, and resilience is Directed by Eric Petersen.


The musical tells the story of Tevye, a humble dairyman, and his attempts to maintain his religious and cultural traditions as external influences encroach upon the lives of his family in the small village of Anatevka. With its unforgettable score by Jerry Bock, poignant lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and heartwarming book by Joseph Stein, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF has captivated audiences worldwide since its debut in 1964.


This production features a talented cast led by Robert Newman as Tevye and Penelope Alex as Golde, second-year apprentice Kasey Lazan, Violet Way, and Dakota Moreno as the daughters Tzeitel, Hodel, and Chava respectively. Charlie King portrays Lazar Wolf, first-year apprentice Brady Cunningham is Motel, Owen Squire Smith IS Perchik, and Luke Ragotzy is Fyedka. Audiences will be enchanted by iconic songs such as "Tradition," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "If I Were a Rich Man," and "Sunrise, Sunset,"


Choreographer Melissa Cotton Hunter has meticulously crafted dance sequences that honor the original choreography by Jerome Robbins while introducing innovative elements that highlight the characters' emotional journeys. Brett Burradell is the Scenic Designer and Technical Director and Alex Szczotka is the Costume Designer. Properties are designed by Steven Lee Burright with Lights designed by M. David Knewtson. Garrylee McCormick is the Hair/Wig Designer. Troy Benton is the Sound Designer.
