Snoqualmie Falls Forest Theater launches its 49th season with the tradition-infused “Fiddler on the Roof,” to be performed in an open-air amphitheater, surrounded by woods, meadows and streams.

Barbecue dinners are available by reservation on performance days. Performances run July 19 through Aug. 24, with shows on Saturdays at 2 and 7 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

The Tony-award winning musical is set in Tsarist Russia in 1905, centering on Tevye, the father of five daughters and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. Children and adults will be drawn into the compelling story and musical numbers. Music is by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, book by Joseph Stein.

The Forest Theater’s land provides the setting for its theater productions, while the productions provide funding for stewardship and maintenance of the land, including a refuge for wildlife displaced by urban development and outdoor recreational opportunities for members and guests.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for students and seniors, and $10 for children age 5 to 12. Dinner is $18 for steak or salmon, $15 for chicken, $14 for vegetarian lasagna, and $5 for a child’s hot dog.
