Male Roles



Age Range: 35 – 55

Vocal Range: Tenor/Baritone (Ab2 – F5)

Acting: VERY strong actor who must carry the show and have a strong connection to the audience. He is the heart and conscience of Fiddler on the Roof.

Movement: move well

Tevye is the humble but wise narrator and main character of the story. His stature comes from his integrity and zest for life. An impoverished milkman in the small village of Anatevka, Russia circa 1905, he is the father of five daughters, husband to Golde, and a leader in his Jewish community. He is faced with many struggles to uphold the traditions of his people, especially concerning the marriages of three of his daughters. Tevye is a likeable, hard-working, pious man (somewhat of a dreamer) who sees the positive side of life. He is humorous and usually relaxed, but when pushed, shows stubbornness and rage.


Motel, the Tailor

Age Range: 18 – 35

Vocal Range: Strong Tenor (E3 - F#4)

Acting: Great character role needing someone who can show Motel’s sensitive, nervous but loveable character. Must have good comic timing and the ability to show vulnerability.

Movement: move well

Motel is  the meek and very poor village tailor. He seeks the hand of Tevye’s eldest daughter Tzeitel. He must challenge the tradition of parents choosing a mate and in the process comes into his own by standing up for his feelings for Tzeitel.


Perchik, the Student

Age Range: 18 – 35

Vocal Range: Tenor (B2 – E4)

Acting – Strong acting skills. Actor must show intensity and an unfailing commitment to his radical beliefs. He should be able to hold his own against Tevye as he clashes with him idealistically. He is also likeable, charming, and ultimately an accepted part of Tevye’s family.

Movement: move well

Perchik is a visitor and outsider to Anatevka. He brings with him radical views that challenge traditions. Perchik and Hodel (Tevye’s second oldest daughter) fall in love and again challenge Tevye’s beliefs.

The Constable

Non-singing Role

Acting: Strong character role

The constable is a Russian military official stationed near Anatevka. He knows the villagers well and even likes some of them, especially Tevye.
