Fiddler on the Roof


Fiddler on the Roof will be coming to Riverlinks Westside in September 2023. Last presented by Shepparton Theatre Arts Group in 2001, we are thrilled to be returning to Anatevka.

Fiddler on the Roof is a truly unforgettable show. No other musical has so successfully interwoven music, dance, poignancy and laughter. Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to hold onto his religion, his Russian-Jewish traditions and his five daughters while a difficult future looms ever nearer. In the process, he learns that life is as shaky as a “fiddler on the roof.” Audiences are invited to dream with “Matchmaker, Matchmaker;” laugh out loud with “If I Were a Rich Man,” and tear up with “Sunrise, Sunset” and “Anatevka.”

Featuring an ensemble of over 50, including 2 youth ensembles “Sunrise”/“Sunset” and the talents of the region’s top performers including Marc McIntyre as Tevye, Nicky Pummeroy as Golde, Stevie Renee as Tzeitel, Megan Scott as Hodel, Kirsty Jones as Chava, Robbie Maher as Perchik, James Nollar as Motel, Sean O’brien as Lazar Wolf, Wendy Platt as Yente. Fiddler on the Roof is the must see show of 2023.

We invite you to join us at WestSide Performing Arts centre from 15 – 23 September 2023. Tickets go on sale Monday July 17, 10am. Please called Riverlinks on (03) 58329511,

TICKET PRICES Full $45, Conc $40, Student (U17) $35, Group (10+) $40

This is a theatrical experience that will last forever in your heart. Let’s celebrate life together. L’Chaim!
