Through June 8, 2014 – Fiddler on the Roof 

Fiddler on the RoofArguably the greatest musical ever written and certainly one of the most popular shows in Fireside history, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF makes a triumphant return to the Fireside stage for this very special anniversary season. This classic show held the title as Broadway’s longest running musical for over twenty years, winning nine Tony Awards including Best Musical. Tens of millions of people worldwide have fallen in love with Tevye, the long suffering dairyman who struggles to find a balance between his traditions and his family. It is a heart-warming story featuring one of Broadway’s most beautiful musical scores. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF opened on Broadway the same year that The Fireside first opened its doors and to celebrate this dual anniversary, back by popular demand, Artistic Director Ed Flesch will return to the leading role with which he has long been associated. You won’t want to miss this Fireside “Tradition!”

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday.
