We are a friendly, hard working musical theatre company based in the New Earswick Folk Hall, York, where we have been since our founding in 1914. Read our Blog page for all the latest news on what we are up to.
We perform two productions each year at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre, one in the Spring, the other in the Autumn. Our next show, 9 – 12 November will be Fiddler on the Roof.
Our Autumn 2016 show –
Fiddler on the Roof
The 1964 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical based on the stories about Tevye the Dairyman by Sholem Aleichem.
Story: When Tevye’s eldest daughter, Tzeitel, begs him to let her marry a poor tailor rather than the middle-aged butcher that he has already chosen for her, Tevye must choose between his own daughter’s happiness and those beloved traditions that keep the outside world at bay. Meanwhile, there are other forces at work in Anatevka, dangerous forces which threaten to destroy the very life he is trying to preserve.
Performances 9 – 12 November 2016
