March 7,8, 9, 14, 15 and 16    Friday and Saturday shows at 8:00 pm and Sunday matinees at 3:00 pm

Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for students (K-12 and under).

Tickets may be reserved by calling: 517 647 4041  or purchased online on this website.

Bye Bye Birdie is a stage musical adapted from the book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse.

Originally titled Let’s Go Steady, the play is a satire on American society set in 1958.   The story was inspired by the  popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957.  The rock star character’s name, “Conrad Birdie,” is word play on the name of Conway Twitty.   Twitty is best remembered as a country music star, but in the late 1950s, he was one of Presley’s rock ‘n’ roll rivals.

Odd Couple b 259aWhat happens with a busy divorced TV news producer invites a dumped
socialite to share her apartment??

That’s what you’ll find out when you come to see “The Odd Couple”
(female version) at the Portland Playhouse November l,2, 3 and 8 and 9.
Directed by Ruth Ann Peake, there will be only one Sunday Performance, on
Sunday, November 3. Curtain time for the matinee is 3:00 PM, all other
performances are 8:00 PM. Tickets are $ l0.00 for all seats.

This is a very funny play about two people who can’t get along, but
want to try. Olive (Debbie Hattis) invites Florence (Nita Massey) to
live with her just for a little while. They’re given support by their
Trivial Pursuit friends Sylvie (Kacie Shaw) Vera (Wanda Urie).
Renee (Tyann Wallace) and Mickey (Linda Ferrera).

A romantic visit from two Spanish brothers Manolo(Clay Ramsey) and
Jesus(Roger Miller) only add to the fun and confusion.

This is a play you won’t want to miss. Order tickets at 5l7 647 4041
or via PayPal.
