John Stefano, Chair of the Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance, will take the stage in the lead role of Tevye in the final production of the 2015-16 season. Winner of 9 TONY Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler On The Roof has been touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty and has become a staple of the musical theatre canon. 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. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler On The Roof’s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, sadness, and joy.
