Theatre Under the Stars (“TUTS”) first premiered at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park in 1940 and it’s still going strong. On stage for July and August 2011 TUTS presents Bye Bye Birdie and Anything Goes.
Bye Bye Birdie “Rock and roll returns to Malkin Bowl as Bye Bye Birdie, written by Michael Stewart with music by Charles Strouse and Lyrics by Lee Adams, kicks off the 65th season. Set in 1960 as teenagers all across North America are going crazy for rock star, Conrad Birdie.”
Bye Bye Birdie will be presented even days in July and odd days in August, and Anything Goes will be odd days in July and even days in August. All shows start at 8pm except if it’s a fireworks night (July 30, August 3, August 6) then they’ll begin at 7:00pm. Tickets are currently on sale starting at $29 with group rates available. Children 5 and under are free.
