Fiddler On The Roof Comes to The Ellen Theatre
Montana TheatreWorks proudly presents one of the greatest musicals of all time, Fiddler on the Roof, at The Ellen Theatre. Opening night is tonight (July 10). The play runs through July 26. Tickets start at $16. Details here:
Musical director Frederick Frey leads an outstanding live orchestra playing such timeless songs as Sunrise, Sunset, If I Were a Rich Man and the classic Matchmaker, Matchmaker. With a talented cast of 30 filling The Ellen stage, Shari Watson provides sterling choreography and Michael Dixon an array of stunning costumes, while Anatevka comes to life with a brilliant set design by M. A. Hare. The creative team is rounded out by Joel Jahnke and Stephan Gueguen adding Lighting and Sound Design, respectively, and the entire production is under the direction of MTW co-founder Mary Jo Ludin.
Fiddler on the Roof captures the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, family, and meaning, and touches us all. It is no wonder that the original 1964 production, directed by Jerome Robbins, became the longest-running Broadway musical in history, a title it maintained for ten years.
Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 3 p.m.. Time of total production, with intermission, is three hours. For exact dates and ticket information, visit theellentheatre.secure.force.com/ticket#details_a0Sd000000EVuPwEAL
