Up Next on Mainstage! Bye Bye Birdie!

Ovation!'s rehearsal studio is at 600 Ericksen on Bainbridge. All performances will be at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Theatre. Performances are January 3-12, 2020. Rehearsals will begin in late September with a hiatus for the winter holidays. All parts are open. The show will be presented with a live orchestra.
SECOND AUDITIONS for the role of Mrs. Doris MacAfee (Mezzo) will be held Sunday, September 29th @ 6pm, at our rehearsal studio, 600 Ericksen, Ste. 103, Bainbridge Island. Mr. MacAfee's supportive wife is steady, calm, in control of a nervous, grouchy husband and a hysterical teenage daughter.
A loving send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for teens, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE continues to thrill audiences around the world. Birdie is a four-time Tony Award winning show.
Birdie has a large cast of all ages and experience levels! For reference, we do not recommend viewing the movie of the show - it is not a good representation of this show. For audio reference, we recommend original cast versions only.
**Please note that all other roles have been cast.**
