The Wagon Wheel Theatre will present “Fiddler on the Roof,” one of the most timeless and classic musicals of all time.
According to a press release from the theater, it’s a story that celebrates life, love and tradition. This musical will be touching the hearts of audiences and  community members July 16 to 26 at the Wagon Wheel Theatre.
“Fiddler on the Roof” tells the story of Tevye, a Jewish father who loves his family and wants to protect them in a time of growing anti-Semitism. When Tevye’s oldest daughter begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butler he has already chosen for her, he must choose between his daughter’s happiness and his beloved tradition. With the universal theme of tradition cutting across the barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, audiences will cry, laugh and jump for joy.
Returning to the Wagon Wheel to play the iconic role of Tevye’s is Bob Miller. Miller is happy to continue his 23-year tenure at the Wagon Wheel Theatre. His credits include Edna in “Hairspray,” Fagin in “Oliver!,” Horace in “Hello Dolly” and Chris Kringle in “Miracle on 34th Street.” Miller said he is thrilled to be playing Tevye, a role he has dreamed of since he grew his first beard.
