Auditions for ‘Bye Bye Birdie’

Say “hello” to Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich Theatre Program’s Bye Bye Birdie: Young Performers Edition auditions on Dec. 12 and 13 at the club.

Bye Bye Birdie is considered one of the most popular musicals of our time. Well-known songs such as An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot of Livin’ to Do and Spanish Rose have long been recognized as musical theatre classics.

Bye Bye Birdie tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. The singer, Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley type, has a pompadour and thick sideburns; he wears gaudy gold costumes and speaks in a rugged voice. Albert Peterson, his agent, is a very pleasant mild mannered young man. Albert’s faithful secretary Rose Alvarez keeps him and Birdie moving forward in the world. Rosie concocts one final national publicity plan before Conrad’s induction.

Auditions will be held on Dec. 12 and 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. Parents of those auditioning must sign up to audition in advance by contacting the club at 203-869-3224 or [email protected] The performances will take place May 2 and 3, 2014.
