Fiddler On The Roof
Fiddler On The Roof

Fiddler On The Roof, by Bock, Stein and Harnick  is tackling issues of social progress and revolution, alongside family ties, religious customs, gender inequality and community displacement, themes that are all still relevant today. The main school pupils from Haileybury take the opportunity to explore these issues through the fabulous songs and stories of Tevye the Dairyman and his five daughters, during the turbulent times of pre-revolution Russia. We look forward to seeing you at the Hertford Theatre to celebrate a wonderful step forward for Drama at Haileybury and join the cast in toasting: L’Chaim… To Life!

Location: Hertford Theatre

Open to all. Book you tickets here.
