The Bury St Edmunds Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (BSEAODS) is bringing its performance of acclaimed musical, Fiddler on the Roof, to the Theatre Royal next week.

The well loved tale of family, love, religion and the shifting of deeply rooted traditions will be at the theatre from October 13 to 17.

As poignant today as when it opened on Broadway in 1964, audiences will be able to enjoy memorable tunes such as Matchmaker, Tradition, If I Were A Rich Man and more.

Fiddler on the Roof is the 112-year-old society’s second production of the year, after performing Oliver! to sell-out crowds in March.

Directed by Louise Travis, award-winning director, actress and model, the production stars Mark Kerr in the central role of Tevye.

On playing the iconic role, he said: “I love the challenge of playing this part and am enjoying developing my character alongside my stage family.”

Rachelle Curtis will be playing the principal part of Tzeitel, the eldest of Tevye’s five daughters.

She said: “This show is such a joy to perform, as well as to watch. It’s a beautifully touching story that speaks to people on a very human level.”
