THE ELLEN THEATRE

BOZEMAN – Celebrating 20 years of performing theater in the Gallatin Valley, Montana TheatreWorks presents “Fiddler on the Roof,” opening July 10 for a three-week run at The Ellen Theatre in Bozeman.

This family-favorite musical tells the story of a small Russian town in 1905, where time-honored traditions are both embraced and challenged by a man and his family as their simple world goes through an extraordinary transition.

Originally produced in 1964, “Fiddler on the Roof” became the longest-running Broadway musical in history, highlighted by iconic songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”

Musical Director Frederick Frey leads an orchestra featuring a number of local musicians, and the production is directed by Montana TheatreWorks co-founder Mary Jo Ludin. Frank Simpson performs the role of Tevye and heads a cast of 30 singers and dancers.

There are 10 opportunities to see “Fiddler on the Roof” at The Ellen Theatre, with the final performance set for Sunday, July 26. Thursday, Friday and Saturday showings start at 8 p.m. while Sunday matinees begin at 3 p.m. Wine, beer and other refreshments – which may be brought into the theater – are available one hour prior to show time.
