Spend a summer evening under the stars while enjoying the heartwarming musical Fiddler on the Roof at Kit Carson Park Amphitheatre. With a score of unforgettable songs like "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset," "Tradition" and "To Life," Fiddler on the Roof taps into themes that touch us all: family, tradition and changing social values. It's the story of Tevye, a dairyman in a small Russian village who tries to maintain the Jewish religious customs of his ancestors while his daughters yearn to adapt to modern ways. When dangerous forces threaten the village's traditional way of life, Tevye's faith and love for his family give him strength to fight for his home and his people. Based on the classic stories of Sholem Aleichem, the musical won nine Tony Awards on Broadway and continues to be an audience favorite year after year. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“To call the La Jolla Playhouse production of The Wiz a mere revival is to understate the accomplishment of helmer Des McAnuff and his production team. They have rethought, rescaled and reshaped an uneven musical play of historical importance but modest virtues into a joyful, stunningly entertaining circus of spectacle, soul and heart.” —Variety
Based on _The Wonderful Wizard of Oz _by L. Frank Baum
Book by William F. Brown
Music and Lyrics by Charlie Smalls
Directed by Des McAnuff
The all-star cast guarantees an unforgettable night at the theater when The Wiz comes to the La Jolla Playhouse. See the story of The Wizard of Oz seen through the prism of an energetic urban soul musical.
