If you’re looking for a night of entertainment, look no further than The Theatre Company of Bryan, located right here in the Brazos Valley. Beginning February 18, the Theatre will be performing “Fiddler on the Roof,” a classic musical set in twentieth century Imperial Russia.
“Fiddler on the Roof,” based on a series of tales known as “Tevye and His Daughters,” centers around a man named Tevye who wishes to retain the predominant Jewish culture in his household while raising five daughters. It is a constant battle, as the three oldest daughters wish to marry for love, and each suitor widens the chasm between Tevye and his customs of faith. Although the show debuted on Broadway in 1964, it remains a timeless masterpiece performed in playhouses throughout the nation.
A community theatre, The Bryan Theatre Company is dedicated to providing affordable, high quality productions for the local family audience. The theatre has been providing the Bryan/College Station area with its illustrious shows since 1987, when the company (only nine adults at the time) first performed. Also setting it apart from the playhouse crowd, The Theatre Company of Bryan, a renovated movie theater, is the only theatre in the state of Texas to have two permanent revolving platforms in the stage itself.
“Fiddler on the Roof” is the third performance in line with their current season, “Something for Everyone,” following “Disney’s the Little Mermaid” and “Sweeney Todd.” With the help of the votes of the actors and subscribers of the season, The Theatre Company of Bryan is thankful to have secured the rights to the recently revived Broadway artwork.
“Fiddler on the Roof” runs for through the weekends of February 17 through March 5. Their ticket prices vary from $7 for children 12 and under to a $20 general admission ticket. Tickets can be bought in advance online and exchanged if needed. If the show has not sold out, tickets can also be bought at the door.
