Taking something familiar and making it feel fresh has become Freefall Theatre's trademark. Expect just that as the cozy theater opens its season with old-time Broadway classic Fiddler on the Roof — but with a twist, of course. Innovative puppetry will highlight the reimagined production, which includes traditional songs If I Were a Rich Man and Matchmaker, Matchmaker. David Mann, who most recently played the Emcee in Freefall's Cabaret, will be Tevye. It opens Saturday and runs through Nov. 3. $20-$44; package deals available. Freefall Theatre is at 6099 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. (727) 498-5205. See freefalltheatre.com.
