bye bye birdie- on stage!

Whether you remember the original stage musical or Anne-Margaret performing alongside the name-busting talent of the day—Dick Van Dyke, Janet Leigh, Paul Lynde and Maureen Stapleton, to name a few—in the big screen version of Bye Bye Birdie, most of us can recall a favorite scene and song from the iconic 60s movie.

And now we can enjoy that hip-thrusting, high energy, feel-good music again—this time, live and on stage, at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck.

Artistree Community Theatre, a new non-profit devoted to intergenerational live theater will be producing musical theater, comedic and dramatic plays, along with workshops and readings. Founder Heather Capelle saw an opportunity to leverage the abundance of talented adult performers in the area and fill local theater spaces, while providing entertainment to all ages of the community.

Presented in partnership with At Home on the Sound, a grassroots organization committed to supporting the aging population in Larchmont-Mamaroneck, Bye Bye Birdie is Artistree’s inaugural production–directed by Broadway veteran and Westchester native, John Treacy Egan, with four performances on July 13, 14 and 15 (including one matinee).
