Bye Bye Birdie will hit the Pine City stage in July
The 2017 Summer Musical in Pine City will be “Bye Bye Birdie”, directed by Rachel Bigelow. Performance dates are July 13 – 16 with three evening performances and the closing matinee on Sunday.
The show is set in 1958 and the story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss.
Audiences will love the rock-n-roll sound, loveable and laughable characters, and truly have a good time this summer with the cast and crew of “Bye Bye Birdie”.
We are welcoming back a few returning actors and actresses from last summer’s musical “The Music Man” and welcoming many new faces from the Rush City and North Branch communities this year!
