“The Music Man” Coming to BHS This Spring

By Sydney Hoff

BHS eagerly awaits the premiere of the school musical, The Music Man, in a few weeks on March 8th. An incredible number of hours have gone into the production of the musical, and the cast and crew of approximately 55 people are looking forward to one of the best shows Briarcliff has yet to see.

The show is about Harold Hill, a traveling salesman, who tries to swindle money from the people of River City by convincing them to start a boy band. Senior Dan Levine stars as Harold Hill and senior Rebecca Simpson-Wallack as his romantic interest, Marian the Librarian.

Of Harold, Rebecca says, “I know he is a phony, but I still love him because he changed the town from a negative place to a place filled with joy and spirit.”

The cast rehearses each day after school until 6PM with director Ian Driver, choreographer David Suber, and musical director Carol Arruci. Rebecca describes producing the play as “incredible.” Dan agrees, adding that “it is a very tiring process, but I know the end product will be outstanding. I cannot wait to perform.”

With over ten seniors involved in the production of the play, it will surely be an emotional production. Senior Emily Altabef shares, “I can’t believe this is my last show at BHS. I’ve had such a great time working with my fellow cast members and have made so many memories this year.” With such a devoted and enthusiastic cast and crew, The Music Man is sure to be a hit that no BHS student should miss.
