It’s spring musical season at West Seattle High School, and the WSHS Drama Club and Music Department invite you to come see “Bye Bye Birdie,” opening May 10th for six performances – 7:30 pm that night plus May 11th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and an 8 pm event on May 12th including a pre-func that’s a special benefit for the arts programs at Westside. The synopsis:
‘Bye Bye Birdie’ is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It is a satire done with the fondest affection, and tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot of Livin’ to Do, Kids, Rosie and Spanish Rose are musical theatre classics. This is the tops in imagination and good old-fashioned fun.
For the five regular performances, tickets are $7 with a reservation (call 206-252-8834 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org), $12/door. For the May 12th benefit – which includes a pre-show arts display, appetizers, and beverages at the St. John’s church hall next door – it’s $25 in advance, and no guarantee of space at the door, so get the specifics here.
