Inland Regional Youth Theatre will be holding auditions for their fall production of Bye Bye Birdie. A loving send-up of the 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 and a hilarious script, BIRDIE continues to thrill audiences around the world.

All roles are open and we will be casting students ages 7-20 for this production. Auditions will be held on Mon. August 14th and Wed. August 16th from 4-6 pm at First Baptist Church 5500 Alessandro Blvd., Riverside. Callbacks will be on Thurs. August 17th at 3:30pm. Rehearsals will be held on Mon., Wed. and Thurs. from 4:00-6:00pm beginning the week of August 21st. Some Saturday rehearsals may be scheduled with advance notice. Performances will be November 17-19 in Riverside.

No appointment is necessary. Be prepared to sing approximately one minute of a pop/rock number from the 50s/60s era in the style of the show, or any number from a Broadway musical. Please bring a CD or portable music player with your karaoke background track for the audition. No a Capella singing. Bring your performing resume and headshot.

Registration Fees for our production are as follows:
$250 per cast member (includes script, cast t-shirt, photo CD)
$200 for 2nd+ family members (no photo CD included).
Registration Fees are due at callbacks.
