The Pine City Heritage Players have been busy rehearsing since mid-May for this summer’s community theater presentation of “Bye Bye Birdie”, a musical comedy with book by Michael Stewart, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Lee Adams.
The show is directed by Rachel Bigelow, a Rush City resident. Bigelow is the fall musical director at North Branch High School, and most recently directed the spring production of “Little Women” at the Rush City High School. It is through these other regional connections that this summer’s musical includes cast and crew members from a number of cities in the region: Pine City, Rush City, North Branch, Finlayson, and Grantsburg.
Four performances will be available for audiences to enjoy: July 13, 14 & 15 at 7PM or a matinee performance on Sunday, July 16th at 2PM.
Tickets for the production will go on sale July 1st. Local purchases can be made at Cabin Coffees, More Than Sprouts, or the Chamber of Commerce office. Online ticket sales along with cast and crew biographies and other articles will also be available at www.pinecityheritageplayers.com
