In the upcoming spring production of Bye Bye Birdie, there is a very crucial scene in Act two that cannot be done without a bit of extra help! The musical team is asking any high school boy who is available to consider helping through this low commitment role.

The premise of the scene is called the “Shriner’s Ballet” where Rosie, who’s played by Senior Trinity Riva, interrupts a Shriners meeting in Maude’s private dinning room and starts a wild dance while she flirts with the Shriners.

According to director Molly Burns, “Because this would be such a small time commitment, it would be a great way for someone who may have been thinking about joining the musical to ‘try it out’ or a senior who just wants to do something fun before they graduate.”

The commitment is very low effort. Interested students would need to attend 2-3 practices in March, and the 2 weeks of tech week in April before the show.

“They’d still get to be involved with all the fun stuff and receive the satisfaction that comes with an auditorium full of people standing and applauding at the end of the night. I have had soooo many kids comes up to me over the years saying ‘I wish I would’ve done the musical!’ I don’t think people realize how much fun it is,” commented Molly Burns.

There is no musical or dancing ability required to participate.

Signs up are located outside the music room, or you can speak to Mr. Logue directly!
