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

    Hello, my name is Nigel Ross. I was looking through some old photos, and found a couple taken during my time with NEADOS (as it was then). I was a member from Gigi to Hans Anderson, and spent much of that time on the committee. I have many happy memories of this time, and I am pleased that you still thrive. You may be interested to know that the high spot of my time on the committee was persuading Mavis Massheder that it would be a good idea to enter the York Raft Race. The society entered a raft for three years running (Annie to the Sound of Music) and in the first year won a trophy for the most sponsorship. My lasting memory is the final year when one of the members, Major Dave Hargreaves, arrived at our “boatyard” – Derek London’s shop – with an army 7 ton truck and 6 squaddies to transport the completed raft to the start. It was a very wet Summer, and the finish at Bishopthorpe Yacht Club was a quagmire. No problem, Major Dave got on the phone, and 2 army tracked recovery vehicles arrived to get the rafts out of the water!!!! Also at that time several of the members were also connected with Sheriff Hutton Bridge Cricket Club, and the society actually played a number of cricket matches at their ground (yes we could raise 11 able bodied male members, and actually boasted 3 qualified umpires in our ranks). Again many happy times. Break a leg.

    Kind regards
    Nigel Ross
