Tzeitel, the eldest daughter Female 18-25 Alto

Chava, the 3rd eldest daughter Female 15-20 Mezzo

Motel, the tailor Male 18-30 Bari-Tenor

Perchik, the student Male 20-30 Baritone
Perchik is a visitor to Anatevka, and therefore, an outsider. He brings with him radical new ideas that challenge the traditions. He falls for Hodel. This role requires an actor capable of showing intensity and an unfailing commitment to his beliefs.

Lazar is the town’s wealthiest citizen & is the same age, if not older, than Tevye. He wants to marry, by traditional parental agreement,Tevye’s daughter, Tzeitel. Promising to give her a good & secure life. A feisty, comic role.

Yente, the matchmaker Female 40-60 Alto
Yente is the middle-aged widow who matches up the young people of the village in the hopes that they will marry. She is the village busybody and knows all the news of the town. She is the comedienne of the show.

The Constable Male 35-60
This Russian military official stationed near Anatevka, knows the villagers well, and even likes some of them, particularly Tevye. But these superficial relationships don’t prevent him from carrying out violence against the people. This is a non-singing role requiring a strong actor.
