Fiddler on the Roof, based on Tevye and his Daughters and Other Tales by Sholem Aleichem, with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein, is set in the troubled times of Imperial Russia in 1905.  The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his many attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives.  He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one’s choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar who evicts the Jews from their village.  A heartwarming story, full of beloved music, and a wonderful cast of characters, including the iconic Tevye, Fiddler on the Roof is a family musical tradition that is a timeless treat.

Meet the producers and actors from this exciting new program, co-produced by New Hampshire Public Television & PSU's TIGER program.

TIGER Takes On Bullying! is a lively, music-filled 30-minute special that helps elementary school kids learn how to deal with bullying in school, online and socially. It’s a co-production of NHPTV and Plymouth State University’s TIGER (Theater Integrating Guidance, Education, and Responsibility) program.

By using children’s own words, TIGER Takes On Bullying! depicts their real experiences of bullying and intolerance, and shows how to move to more positive social interactions at school and in the community.

The program aims to help students resolve bullying behaviors, and also to guide those who witness bullying behavior and don’t know what to do. And, NHPTV is developing a special website and resources for teachers, students and families to help avoid and overcome bullying.

Scenes for the show were filmed at Plymouth Elementary School using 25 children along with the TIGER troupe of actors, as well as at the NHPTV Broadcast Center in Durham.
