This was a special production for our President Audrey Pring as our long serving producer and choreographer. It was Audrey's last show with SDMS as a Producer, though she will remain of course as our Life President and continue to provide valued input into the running of the society to which she has effectively dedicated her life. Read more on our Press page.
The show was very well received by audiences and the Society have in turn received many wonderful comments from them:- "I had no idea that it would be so professional" ......... "You have so many talented principals" ........"What a wonderful orchestra" ...... "It was good enough to be seen in The West End!"
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor milkman is trying to keep his family's traditions in place. The old ways of life are challenged when his daughters wish to marry for love rather than accept the choices of Yente the Matchmaker! So Tevye is faced with choosing between his own daughters' happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. It is Tevye's love for his family, pride and faith that help him face the dangerous forces in Anatevka which threaten to destroy the very life he and his fellow villagers are trying to preserve.
FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is filled with a rousing, heartwarming score, including "Tradition", "Matchmaker", "If I Were A Rich Man" and "Sunrise Sunset". No other musical has so magically woven music, dance, poignancy and laughter into such an electrifying and unforgettable experience. Relive the tradition!
