Sumner High School’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof” begins Thursday, May 2, and plays three more showings through Saturday, May 4.

The classic musical follows Tevye, the patriarch of a Jewish family in Tsarist Russia. Tevye, a poor milkman, attempts to keep his religious traditions alive in his five daughters, while the Russian Empire becomes more and more hostile. But, as the young women marry, each of their unions strays further from their roots. As civil unrest reaches a fever pitch that results in the expulsion of the Jews from many of the nation’s villages, Tevye must examine what it means to keep tradition alive.

The original Broadway production of the show opened in 1964 and remains one of Broadway’s longest running shows in history.

Drama teacher Rachel Street and choir director Karlene Miles directed the show.

Show times are 7 p.m. on May 2, May 3 and May 4, with a 2 p.m. matinee on May 4. Tickets are $10 for adults. The box office opens one hour before the show.

The Sumner Performing Arts Center is located at 1707 Main Street in Sumner.
