Cast Break Down
Fiddler on the Roof

All roles will be understudied.

Tevye, the Dairyman: Tevye is a likeable, hard-working, pious man. He has raised his five daughters according to the scriptures, many of which he invents himself. He is humorous and relaxed, but when pushed, Tevye can show stubbornness, and at times, rage. Age 45-60, strong singer and actor.

Golde, Tevye's Wife: Golde is the real strength behind Tevye. She is the one who keeps the household going. She is a hardworking mother of five. Golde must be a strong singer with comedic timing. Age 45-55.

Yente, The Matchmaker: Yente is a middle-aged widow who matches up the young people of the village in the hopes that they will marry. She is the village busybody and knows all the town news. Yente is the comedienne of the show with a flare for an Eastern European-Jewish-Yiddish dialect.

Lazar Wolf, The Butcher: Lazar is the town's wealthiest citizen and is the same age as Tevye, maybe even older. He wants to marry, Tevye's daughter. This is a feisty, comic role requiring a strong comic actor; loud and coarse. Age 50-65.

Tzeitel, The Eldest Daughter: Tzeitel is the first daughter to marry and the first to challenge the traditions. Tzeitel must be a capable dramatic actress and able to sing and move well. Age 20-25.

Hodel: The second eldest daughter, Hodel, becomes intrigued with the radical student, Perchik , and eventually leaves Anatevka to join him in Siberia. Age 20-25; needs to move and sing well.

Perchik, The Student: Perchik is a visitor to Anatevka, and therefore, an outsider bringing with him radical new ideas that challenge the traditions. He falls for Hodel, the second eldest daughter. He must be a strong actor, singer and move well. Age 25-35.

Chava, Third Eldest Daughter: Chava is the scholarly daughter who loves to read. She falls in love and runs off with Fyedka, a Russian soldier. In her early 20's, she must be a strong actress, who MUST sing and dance well.

Fyedka, A Russian Soldier: Fyedka, a strong young soldier, sees past his military obligations and falls in love with Chava. Age 25-35 must dance well.
