SOUTH PORTLAND — The sun rises on the Portland Players production of the beloved theatrical masterpiece “Fiddler on the Roof,” which runs Sept. 25 through Oct. 11, at the playhouse, 428 Cottage Road.

It’s the tragic, humorous and touching tale by Tony-winner Joseph Stein and Pulitzer Prize-winners Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick of a Jewish peasant in pre-revolutionary Russia, contending with marrying off three of his daughters while growing anti-Semitism threatens their village.

‘Fiddler’ is known for such teasured songs at  “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Sunrise, Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker” and “Tradition.”

The musical comedy-drama is directed by Michael Donovan, a Portland Players favorite who has acted or directed in more than half-a-dozen “Fiddler” productions. Donovan brings his unique flair to this production by not only directing, but also choreographing and costuming the production.

Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 2:30 p.m.

Ticket prices: $20 adults, $18 senior citizens, $15 children and students with I.D. Tickets are available on online, or by calling 207-799-7337.
