0223 fiddlerFiddler on the Roof will play across the stage of the LBW Community College Dixon Theater stage on Mon., March 4, at 7 p.m.

The fourth and last production of the 2012-2013 Covington Arts Council, the show features a timeless theme, said CAC executive director Paula Harr.

“Even though it’s set in a different place and time, it deals with the themes of love, tradition and family – something that’s always current,” Harr said.

Fiddler on the Roof, based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem, has captured the hearts of people all over the world with its humor, warmth and honesty.

In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor milkman is trying to keep his family’s traditions in place. Yet, times are changing. And when Tevye’s daughters want to make their own matches, he must choose between his own daughters’ happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Yet, it is Tevye’s love of his family, pride and faith that help him face the dangerous forces in Anatevka that threaten to destroy the very life he and his fellow villagers are trying to preserve.

Advanced tickets are $15 each, $18 the night of the performance and $10 for students and are available at Ansley Place, Harold’s Furniture and Brooks True Value Hardware.
