FALCONER — The students of Falconer High School take to the stage to perform “Fiddler on the Roof” Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Falconer High School auditorium.

The musical is based on the life of a philosophical Jewish milkman, Tevye, who explains the customs of the Jewish people and their lives in the Russian town of Anatevka in 1905, where their lives are as precarious as the perch of a fiddler on a roof.

It is a story that captures the essential human longings for love, community, success, freedom, family and meaning.

The audience is treated to such classic, well-known musical selections as “Tradition,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “Matchmaker,” and the iconic “If I Were a Rich Man.” The memorable characters are portrayed by Matt Gullotti as Tevye, Tesika Kilmer as Golde, his sharp-tongued wife, Eliza Schrantz as Tzeitel, Alexis Adam as Hodel, and Cierra Waterman as Chava, the oldest daughters. Other colorful villagers include Erika Binkley as Yente, the town matchmaker, Kaden Bianco as Lazar Wolf, the butcher, Davin Riel as Motel, Jacob Thierfeldt as Perchik, and Hunter Gruber as Fyedka, as well as many Falconer Central School students completing the cast.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 and may be obtained at the Falconer Middle/High School Security Office, 2 East Ave. N., Falconer, or at the door before the performance.
