From a classic musical to a trip into Southern Maryland’s history to a celebration of bugs, you’re sure to find something fun for everyone this weekend!
Last Weekend to See “Bye Bye Birdie”
Step back in time with The Newtowne Players this weekend – it’s your last chance to see the Players’ production of “Bye Bye Birdie” at Three Notch Theatre, 21744 Coral Place in Lexington Park.
The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock and roll idol – Conrad Birdie – has been drafted into the U.S. Army. His songwriter and agent, Albert Peterson, along with Albert’s secretary and girlfriend Rose Alvarez have created a brilliant plan for a huge send off. They’re going to have Conrad sing his latest song “One Last Kiss” on the Ed Sullivan show, and actually give one last kiss to Kim MacAfee, President of the Conrad Birdie Fan Club in Sweet Apple, Ohio. Hopefully, this will ensure a huge hit for Conrad, keep the public’s adoration for the new G.I. and ultimately keep Almaelou records from going under.
Performances take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 28, Friday, July 29, and Saturday, July 30; and at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 31. Tickets are $13 on Thursday night. Friday through Sunday, tickets cost $18 for adults, $15 for seniors/students/military, and $13 for kids under 10.
