SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our March 2018 production of Bye Bye Birdie. Directed by Isaiah Crowson with Music Direction by John Allman and Choreography by Matthew Lawrence and Rena Bailey-Barrett.

In this Tony-Award-winning favorite, superstar Conrad Birdie arrives in Sweet Apple, Ohio to give a lucky girl "one last kiss" before his induction into the Army. Set in a bygone world of soda fountains, screaming fans and Ed Sullivan, the nostalgic Bye Bye Birdie overflows with comedy, romance, and songs like "Put on a Happy Face," "A Lot of Livin' To Do" and "The Telephone Hour."

The show runs March 2-25, 2018. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8pm and Sunday March 25, 2018 at 2pm. Rehearsals begin January 21, 2018.
