NNU’s Department of Music will present one of the most celebrated and well-respected stage musicals of all time, “Fiddler on the Roof” March 6, 7 and 8 at 7:30 PM in the Brandt Center’s Swayne Auditorium.

Set in 1905, “Fiddler on the Roof” takes place in a small Jewish village in Russia. The story revolves around Tevye, a dairyman with a heart for both learning and understanding, which his lot in life has never afforded him. Audiences have been, and continue to become, deeply involved in the powerful narrative of a man who is torn between the foundation of his tradition and the realities of a changing world. For many, watching “Fiddler on the Roof” is like looking into a mirror; and, no matter how old the story may be, its message is forever relevant and its conclusion is forever new.

With music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, “Fiddler on the Roof” also continues to be considered a cornerstone of melodic and lyric triumph, including universally recognized favorites such as, “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker.” Under the direction of Krista Jo Miller, NNU’s performance promises to be nothing less than an unforgettable and emotionally moving evening.

Tickets are available through the NNU Brandt Center Box Office at 467-8795, the NNU Department of Music at 467-8413 or online at nampaciviccenter.com. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors; family and group rates are available upon request through the Department of Music.
