Celebrating 80 years, the Bergen County Players (BCP) will present "Beehive,"The 60s Musical, a rollicking revue of a musical decade dominated by historically powerful female performers.

Shows will be on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m, and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200, or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours. Tickets are $22 or $18 for groups of 20 or more.
Whatever you think or remember of the 60s, Beehive is a celebratory 60s musical revue of the famous female vocalists of that time. This fun revue is all about the songs and how these incredible women singers were influenced by their social and political times. So while there was a lot of excitement, turbulence was always in the air. Women were questioning their roles in society and standing up for themselves in ways never before attempted.
As it has for the past few seasons, BCP will continue to offer a "Questions & Artists" (Q&A) discussion following select performances. Beehive, The 60s Musical Q&A will kick off immediately following the February 22, 2013 performance. Admission to the Q&A is included in the cost of the ticket.
Discount tickets for students age 25 and under with proper ID are available in advance for $14 by phone or walk-up only. A 'Student Rush' ticket can be purchased for $5 at the box office window starting 30 minutes before curtain with proper ID; this is a cash-only with a limit of one ticket per student.
Parking is free at the Park Avenue municipal lot across the street, one half-block north of the theater.
"The Bergen County Players has grown tremendously from its roots as a small community theater when it was founded in 1932; today, nearly 300 volunteer members, working on and off stage, make possible the nine productions presented each season. The remaining season includes: Better Late (March 23rd, April 20th, 2013) and Boeing-Boeing (May 4th, June 2nd, 2013)."
