Students from Oyster Bay High School shined on stage from March 10-12 during their production of “Bye Bye Birdie.” The production was directed and choreographed by Teriann Chiappardi and took place in the Oyster Bay Performing Arts Center at the high school.
The talented cast took audiences back in time to the late 1950s as they told the story of Kim MacAfee, played by OBHS student Brooklyn Matt, her family and her small Ohio town that gets rocked when teen idol Conrad Birdie, played by OBHS student Marco L. Vlacich, comes to town. Birdie is about to be drafted into the Army and arrives to town for a farewell television performance where he will kiss MacAfee, one of his biggest fans. The students kept audiences laughing and fully entertained with high energy musical numbers and interesting characters.
Oyster Bay High School’s own student-musicians provided the music under the direction of Matthew Sisia and members of the school’s Baymen Backstage Club, led by teacher Alexander Dollin, provided the lighting and sound design. In addition, the production’s cast and crew built and painted the show’s set from scratch and did a wonderful job incorporating it into the story.
The Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District congratulates the entire cast, crew and pit on a spectacular production!
