PHAME Announces "Bye Bye Birdie!" as its June 2013 Musical Production

PHAME Academy - the Portland region's acclaimed fine and performing arts academy for young and older adults with developmental disabilities - announced today the selection of "Bye Bye Birdie" as its 2013 fully staged musical production, the 34th production in PHAME's 28-year history. The production - starring a cast of inspiring PHAME student performers, with stage direction by Jessica Dart and musical direction by Matthew Gailey - will run June 22-23 at Mt. Hood Community College mainstage theatre in Gresham, Oregon.

The Tony-award winning musical "Bye Bye Birdie" is one of the most tuneful, feel-good musical comedies of all time. A satirical take on American life in the 1950's, "Birdie" is filled with throw-back references and plenty of irreverence for oversize rock'n'roll personalities, the power of the almighty television, and the quirks of the 1950's-era American family itself. "Birdie"'s Tony-winning score by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams includes gems like "One Boy," "A Lot of Livin' to Do," "Kids" and the evergreen favorite "Put on a Happy Face."

Tickets to PHAME's "Bye Bye Birdie" are $25-$31 for Gold Circle seats, and $15-$20 for General Admission, and are on sale as of February 4, 2013 click here to purchase your tickets once they're on sale. PHAME's "Bye Bye Birdie" is produced with permission of Tams-Witmark Music Library.
