Encore Productions will be having auditions for the third show of the 2014 Season, Bye Bye Birdie on Mon. May 5th and Tues. May 6th drop-in from 6:00PM to 8:00PM in Elberton City Hall located at 203 Elbert Street (between TitleMax and the Police Dept.). Those wishing to audition for this classic musical should come prepared to sing a short song selection for Directors Michael and Kayla Blackston and read excerpts from the script. Songs should be performed a capella, and no musical accompaniment will be used. Those auditioning should come with an idea of their evening and weekend availability during the months of June through September. Performances of Bye Bye Birdie will be held on Fri. Sat. and Sun. from Sept. 19th—Sept. 28th. Music rehearsals will begin in June and regular rehearsals will begin in July, usually on Mon. Tues. and Thurs. evenings.

Birdie has a large cast consisting of 30+ people including men, women, teenage girls and teenage boys. There are 6 leading roles (3 men, 2 women, 1 teenage girl). Some dancing will be a part of this production, but not all characters that are cast will dance. See the list below for a full listing of available parts.

Show Synopsis: Singer Conrad Birdie has an agent named Albert, a very mild-mannered man. Albert's secretary Rose keeps him and Birdie moving forward in the world. Rose concocts one final publicity plan before Conrad's induction into the army. Conrad will bid an American teenage girl goodbye with a kiss on the Ed Sullivan Show. And Kim MacAfee wins the honor! The arrival of Birdie in town causes people of all ages to swoon. Birdie becomes disgusted with his life and goes out on the town with the teenagers. He is tired of being supervised. What happens to Birdie—does he go into the army? And what about Albert and Rose—will they live happily ever after in spite of Albert’s meddlesome mother?
