Long Beach Playhouse Extends 'FIDDLER' Through 8/23

Due to sell-out crowds, the Long Beach Playhouse is extending its production of Fiddler on the Roof for one additional weekend: August 22 and 23. "The production has received outstanding reviews and audience response has been overwhelming," said Andrew Vonderschmitt. "The shows have sold out and this give people who want to see it but couldn't get tickets another chance."

Each year, Long Beach Playhouse closes its Mainstage Season with a musical. This year, it's the popular classic, Fiddler on the Roof. Set in 1905 Czarist Russia, it tells the story of Tevye, a humble dairy farmer and his quest to find suitable mates for his five daughters. Despite his efforts, the daughters are feeling the influences of a world beyond the village.

Fiddler on the Roof first opened in 1964. The music is by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards and won nine. In 1971, it was made into a movie.

Adults are $24.00, seniors $21.00, and Students $14.00.

Tickets are available at www.lbplayhouse.org, or by calling 562-494-1014, option 1.

Long Beach Playhouse is located at 5021 E. Anaheim St., Long Beach, CA, 90804, right across from the Long Beach Recreation golf course. The Playhouse is community-supported theatre with programs and events that cut across age, gender, ethnic, and cultural boundaries.

Performances are 8 p.m. Friday, and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. The box office is open Wednesday-Saturday from 3:00-8:00 pm and Sundays from 1:00-2:00 pm on scheduled matinees.
