Set in the little village of Anatevka, the story centers on Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. It features well-known songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.”

The production will feature Gabriel Jansen in the role of Tevye. His wife Golde will be played by Erin Jones. Tevye’s oldest daughters are Tzeitel, played by Chelsea Darling, Hodel, played by Emily Bartlett, and Chava, played by Emmi Freeman. Logan Alvarez will be the tailor, Motel Kamzoil, and Eric Webler will fill the role of the butcher, Lazar Wolfe. John Jansen will portray Perchik.

Senior citizens are invited to attend the Thursday evening dress rehearsal on March 12 at 6:30 p.m. The rehearsal performance will be free and open only for senior citizens.

Tickets for the shows on Friday and Saturday nights will be $8 for adults and $6 for students. Advance sale tickets are available from A Quilt of Many Colors, Walton Music House and from the Walton high school office at a cost of $7 for adults and $5 for students.
