Theatre Arts Division

The Stapleton Theatre Company is the Theatre Arts division of the Stapleton School of the Performing Arts. It is brought to you by the same team who operated the San Anselmo Town Players as part of the San Anselmo Recreation Department from 2001–2006. The same type of program, artistic quality, production values, instruction, nurturing and care that you came to know from the Town Players continues at Stapleton Theatre Company.

Bye Bye Birdie

Directed & Choreographed by Ashley Kimball
Musical Direction Judy Wiesen

A loving send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for teens and adults, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE continues to thrill audiences around the world. Hit songs include "Put on a Happy Face," "One Last Kiss," "One Boy," "A Lot of Livin' to Do," "Kids!" and "Rosie."

Performances May 3-12 at The Playhouse, San Anselmo
