Birmingham's Historic Theatre Company On Song For Show
One of the most popular musicals of all time is the focus of this year's summer show by Birmingham's oldest musical theatre company.
Birmingham and Midland Operatic Society (BMOS) returns to the New Alexandra Theatre for its annual performance and this time, it is the well-loved Fiddler On The Roof.

Set in 1905 Imperial Russia, Fiddler on the Roof tells the emotional tale of Tevye and his family as he attempts to maintain long-held traditions against the strong-willed actions of his three eldest daughters.
It's a touching, sentimental tale of romance and also prejudice, but the real highlight is the musical score, which includes songs from If I Were a Rich Man to Tradition and Sunrise,Sunset.
The Theatre Company has gained acclaim for its high near professional standards despite being an amateur dramatics group.
