The Pineland Players Present Bye Bye Birdie

The Pineland Players present “Bye Bye Birdie” – Book by Michael Stewart, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams, Originally Produced by Edward Padula

It’s the late 1950s and teenagers from across the United States are going crazy for the handsome rock star, Conrad Birdie. Meanwhile, his manager, Albert Peterson, is going into debt and has staked his financial future on Conrad’s success. Albert’s secretary, Rosie, is increasingly frustrated with the time and money Albert is losing on his project. Disaster strikes when Conrad receives a draft notice to join the military. Thus, Albert attempts to stage a farewell party for Conrad in which he is to kiss one lucky fan on the Ed Sullivan Show before he leaves for the army. Kim MacAfee, from Sweet Apple, Ohio, is the lucky girl chosen to be kissed. But conflict arises when her boyfriend, Hugo Peabody, gets jealous, and Rosie becomes fed-up with Albert’s lack of commitment. Eventually, things turn out alright. Kim and Hugo resolve their problems while Albert agrees to leave managing, become an English teacher, and marry Rosie.

The Pineland Players Presents “Beauty and the Beast”

The Pineland Players, based in Medford NJ and established in 1977, are doing Disney’s “Beauty of the Beast” this weekend. The production is quite elaborate for local community theatre, but that’s standard practice for the Pineland Players. This musical based on the Broadway play is first rate and can be seen the rest of the weekend at the Burlington County Institute of Technology Westhampton Campus. Nathan Titus steals the show as Le Fou, Gaston’s toady sidekick, and some woman named Jennifer Walker is elegant charm as Mrs. Potts (no nepotism here, The Bride really is good). Michael Carty is also notable as Gaston, perfectly cast. It’s a wonderful show that definitely should be seen while it’s running.
