Runaway Stage Follows Tradition with New Fiddler on the Roof

RSP Producing Director Bob Baxter Reprises Role of Tevye

Tradition! Runaway Stage Productions invites audiences to follow tradition
with its production of “Fiddler on the Roof,” the classic musical about family, love and changing times during the early 20th century. Performed with RSP’s live resident orchestra, the show plays September 7-30 at the 24th Street Theatre in downtown Sacramento.

With well-known songs like the humorous “If I Were A Rich Man” and the famous bottle
dance, “Fiddler on the Roof” follows dairyman as he tries to balance his five daughters’ desires with his family’s Jewish traditions. Meanwhile, the family deals with the Russian oppression of their Jewish community.

“’Fiddler on the Roof’ is a classic show that is as relevant today as it was in the 60’s when it was originally produced,” RSP Producing Director Bob Baxter said. “It’s filled with love, humor, and touching songs and story. This is one for the whole family not to be missed.”

Baxter returns to the role of Tevye for RSP’s production, marking his third time playing the leading man – once for RSP and once for American River College.
