The Pratt Community College Performing Arts Department will be performing Fiddler on the Roof for their spring show.

The play is based on Tevye (Dan Gillig), a Jewish milkman, who tells of the customs in the little Russian town of Anatevka. It is 1905, and life here is as precarious as a fiddler on the roof, yet, through their traditions, the villagers endure.
