The musical score is among the greatest in musical theatre, and the story, although quite sad, is moving and at times very funny. Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company will be performing the show from March 11-15. The show is full of wonderful songs – Sunrise Sunset, Matchmaker Matchmaker, If I were a rich man and Sabbath Prayer to name a few – performed by a cast of almost 30 people ranging from children to adults.

The story revolves around Tevye and Golde his wife, who are searching for appropriate husbands for their three eldest daughters. In a break in tradition, the daughters refuse to accept the wishes of the matchmaker, Yente, and their father and instead marry men for love. Meanwhile, Russians are instigating terrible pogroms, and at the end the Jews of Anatevka are forced to leave their homes.

Tickets, £10 for adults, are available from or the Tourist Information Centre.
