Bellport, NY, January 9, 2024: The highly anticipated return of the beloved classic musical, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, is now in rehearsals and will run at The Gateway Playhouse from January 26 – February 25, 2024.

The award-winning tale of Tevye the Dairyman and his family’s struggles in a changing Russia is a true musical theater tradition. Rich with musical hits you know and love, including “Tradition,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “To Life (L’Chaim!),” Fiddler on The Roof is the heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, and life, love and laughter.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF will be directed and choreographed by Keith Andrews, with musical direction by Keith Levenson.
