"Bye, Bye, Birdie," Final Dress Rehearsal, Part 1 of 3, Priscilla Beach Theatre, Priscilla Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Priscilla Beach Theatre (PBT) Owners and Guardians Bob and Sandy Malone opened their fourth production of the 2018 performance season with the classic, "Bye, Bye, Birdie." The original Broadway production was a Tony Award winner and led to revivals, a sequel, and a movie. It is still a popular production choice for many performance venues.

"It's 1960 and a rock and roll star travels to small town Ohio to say good bye to his fans. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Hits include "Put on a Happy Face", "One Last Kiss", "One Boy", "A Lot of Livin' to Do", "Kids!" and "Rosie". (Source: PBT)

The following images were captured live during the final dress rehearsal and are in order of occurrence in the show.  Many are similar since an individual performer may look better in one than the other and some will use these images to share with family, friends, and/or, to build their resumes. Cast members hail from many parts of the country and bring their extraordinary talents to this venerable theatre as part of this summer's Resident Company.

The Barn Stage, a 240-seat venue, is in its 81st season and is cited as the oldest summer stock barn theatre still operating in America. The original barn was built in 1875 and much of that structure remains in place today.
