This was a local theater company in Davis and the show was excellent! Very professional and well staged. Christine Deamer as Mae did an outstanding job! Had a great time!

More Information


Directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Chris Congdon, Bye Bye Birdie is a ripped-from-the-headlines satire from the 1950s.  When an over-the-top rocker is drafted, his publicity agents concoct a way to capitalize on the loss of their biggest star, by creating a press frenzy around a sheltered Midwest teen that will receive the idol’s last kiss before serving his country. The show is filled with unforgettable tunes from Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, such as “Put On a Happy Face,” One Boy" and “A Lot Of Living To Do.”
