Fiddler on the Roof is not an obvious choice for a feel-good night out. Set in tsarist Russia in 1905, it follows an impoverished family struggling to come to terms with a world that’s changing, and not for the better. The Jewish population in the village where the story plays out is targeted by the Russian government and subjected to a pogrom and eventual exile. But the brilliance of the play is that it’s balanced with a bittersweet sense of humor that plays to notions of identity, family and tradition even while tackling darker notions of prejudice and repression. And the songs are genuine earworms: brilliant tunes that have been among the most enduring that Broadway has ever produced. Rockwall Summer Musicals takes on the beloved show beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 23, at the Rockwall High School Performing Arts Center, 1201 TL Townsend Drive. Performances — which are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sundays — continue through July 2. Tickets are $18 to $22 at rockwallsummermusicals.org.
