Wolftrap is outdoor theater; so dress according to the weather. No need to be fussy.

The seats are a little tight, so if you are a bigger person, try to get an end seat.

My 17 year old daughter and I went. We loved the play and the venue. The costumes, the sets, the singing were all so well done. We were thoroughly entertained.

Description

Set in a small town in Tsarist Russia, Fiddler follows the story of a poor Jewish milkman, Tevye, and his family of five daughters as they cope with increasingly difficult social and political upheavals that threaten the traditions of the small town.

A joyful narrator, Tevye explains that their lives are like a fiddler perched on a roof: one of survival through tradition in a life of uncertainty and imbalance. But as his three eldest (and strong-willed) daughters push those traditions for the sake of love, Tevye must reexamine his philosophy and decide what is more important: family or tradition?
