BYE BYE BIRDIE starring Anita Gillette
July 13 - July 22, 2012
Just “Put on a Happy Face” when Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston presents the Tony Award-winning 1960s musical BYE BYE BIRDIE. RYAN OVERBERG co-stars as the swoon-inducing rock ‘n’ roll idol Conrad Birdie.
BYE BYE BIRDIE is a delightful throwback to a simpler time - when teenagers talked on land lines and only birds tweeted. Yet its comic and musical messages about love, tolerance, and American idol worship are as relevant today as ever! Enjoy what happens to a small Midwestern community when an Elvis-like singing sensation swings through town looking for one last kiss before entering the Army.
Tony nominated star of stage and screen ANITA GILLETTE(30 Rock, Moonstruck, Chapter Two) leads the cast as the comically overbearing mother of all mothers Mae Peterson.
