Bye Bye Birdie Jr. is produced by Rivertown Theaters and Encore Studio
Calling all boys & girls entering 3rd grade and up... In this loving send-up of the 1960's, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses all-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for both boys and girls, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE remains one of the most fun, popular shows performed across the country Campers will perform on the mainstage with the actual set we'll be using for our adult production of Bye Bye Birdie, and campers will enjoy performing with our professional, in-stock Bye Bye Birdie set pieces, costumes and props. Our summer production staff is comprised of university trained theater professionals. Attend both 'Bye Bye Birdie' & 'The Little Mermaid' camps and receive a $25 discount.
The interest and enthusiasm about this summer's camp is already buzzing! Last year's camps completely filled up, so reserve your spot today!
What makes our musical theatre camp experience unique? Each and every participant is featured and receives individual attention during their 3 weeks with us. We divide each show into 2 casts, opening up more lead/supporting roles opportunities and featured time on stage for all performers.
During the rehearsal process, our students work closely with our team of professionals benefiting from one-on-one training. Students work on every aspect of the production, gaining on-stage performance skills as well as backstage knowledge. We empower our students to work as a team and assist each other during the production, whether it be with set changes, props, costume, make-up, etc.
Parents and students continue to rave about the production value and professional experience they gain attending our camps. Our focus is on developing the young performers' skills and love for theater, not just shuffling around a large group of kids on stage.
