One of the world’s most beloved musicals returns to Beverly Hills High School as the BHHS Performing Arts Department presents Fiddler on the Roof. This Tony award winner for Best Musical, Book, Score, Direction and Choreography, makes a triumphant return to the Beverly stage as this year’s spring musical on Apr. 6 at 2:00 p.m., and Apr. 7 through Apr. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
BHHS has a proud heritage of large-scale, classic stage productions, and Fiddler continues this tradition with an extraordinary company of over 100, including a fifty-member cast, and a large, virtually all-student orchestra.
Based on Sholem Aleichem’s Tevye and his Daughters, Fiddler on the Roof, by Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, is a passionate, touching, and very human window on life in a small Russian village. It features some of the most recognized music of the genre, has had 4 Broadway revivals, and has been preformed over 4,500 times on Broadway. This is Beverly’s fourth production of Fiddler, continuing Beverly’s rich historic tradition of high quality, family friendly shows.
Ticket prices are $6.00 for all seats at the Wednesday matinee. For all other performances, pricing will be $15.00 for adults, $10.00 for students, and $25.00 for “VIP” seats in the first eight rows. Seating will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
