Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Bergen County Players' BEEHIVE, THE 60s MUSICAL
"Beehive" is a celebration of the famous female vocalists of 60s. This fun revue is all about their songs and how these incredible women singers were influenced by the 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.
The show starts off with Jaimie Hayer of Rutherford singing a light-hearted, upbeat song to explain "What is a "Beehive"?" and the 1960s, "how I miss those days!" She is joined by Nadiya Braham of Hackensack, lead vocalist of a local R&B cover band who sings songs
made famous by Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross and Tina Turner. The talented cast of seven
includes Joanne Moldt of Cresskill, Staci Beth Block of Hackensack, Paula O'Brien of Park Ridge, Sarah Feinmark of Haworth and Joanne Guarnaccia of Englewood Cliffs, who each get their star turn in the spotlight throughout this quick-paced evening of entertainment.
Production team members for "Beehive" include Al Wander and James Dolan (Producers); Myra Richards (Assistant to the Director); Steve Bell (Musical Director); Dottie Fischer and Oren Korenblum (Co-Choreographers); Anita Esteve (Stage Manager); Katie Lupfer (Assistant to Stage Manager); Steve Moldt (Set Design and Construction),; Lauren Zenreich (Set Design, Décor); Barbra Murtha (Assistant Set Décor); Alan Seward (Lighting Design); Paul Reitnauer (Lighting Operator); Paul Stabile (Spotlight Operator); Jim Higgins (Sound Design); Ron Siclari and Howard Kerner (Sound Operators); Ruth Morley and Marisa Dolkart (Costumes); Gloria Bumbaco and Elisabeth Erdman (Wardrobe Mistresses); Dana Robitz (Hair); Sandy Stead (Make up); Pat Bain (Properties); Steve Mintz and Charles Cino (Photography); Nancy Rollins (Publicity); and Chris Nelson (Program).

The remaining season includes: Better Late (March 23rd - April 20th, 2013) and Boeing-Boeing (May 4th - June 2nd, 2013)
