BYE BYE BIRDIE
Book by Michael Stewart
Lyrics by Lee Adams
Music by Charles Strouse
Directed by Carol Saltzer
BYE BYE BIRDIE is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It is a satire done with the fondest affection, and tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot of Livin' to Do, Kids, Rosie and Spanish Rose are musical theatre classics. This is the tops in imagination and good old fashion fun.
Come prepared to sing, preferably a show tune, with your accompaniment track, or sheet music.
You will be asked to do a cold reading from a scene in the show and also dance steps.
If you are trying out for one of the lead roles (Albert Peterson, Rose Alvarez, Kim McAfee, Mr Harry McAfee, or Conrad Birdie) and we choose you to sing a song from the show, please be familiar with their songs to sing at the end of auditions.
Looking for many teenagers, 10 adult males, including 1 younger Elvis rock star type and 4 who can sing in a quartet, 3 strong adult females, plus large ensemble.
