Story appeared in: Inner West Times | February 7th, 2018

STARRING Earlwood's Adrian Espulso and Veronica Clavijo, Stanmore's Neil Litchfield, Marrickville's Kathy Petrakis and Newtown student Mia Fernandes, the world's most loved, all-time record-breaking Broadway show returns to Sydney's south in March when Rockdale Musical Society presents Fiddler on the Roof, with award-winning Adam Scicluna as Tevye.
Based on Sholom Aleichem's 'Tevye and his Daughters', Fiddler on the Roof is the beautiful story of the small, traditional town of Anatevka, where Jews and Russians live in a delicate balance.
Through the eyes of the endearingly philosophical Tevye - a father of five daughters - we watch as he defends and then is forced to challenge the time-honoured traditions of his village.
In a time riddled with conflict, we see his daughters grow up and fall in love and his community of loveable, colourful characters endure and adapt to a new world.
Its famous songs include "If I Were a Rich Man", "Tradition", "L'Chaim (To Life)" and so many more.
Rich in historical and cultural detail, Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humour, warmth and honesty. Its universal themes of tradition, love and the challenges of modernity cut across barriers of identity, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences weeping tears of sadness, laughter and joy.
Don't miss it from March 2-11, Thursday to Saturday, from 8pm plus 2pm weekend matinees.
Tickets $34 - $43.50 (incl booking fee). Bookings and info at
