For months our James River theater department and staff have been preparing for a play that would rock the stage. On the nights of January 29th through the 31st, the musical Bye Bye Birdie was performed and enjoyed by many. This musical made the audience members laugh and sing along to songs that you couldn’t help but to get stuck in your head! All of the actors, actresses, staff, band members, writers, and directors gave it all they had and the end result was a packed theater, lots of wonderful memories being made, and a performance that blew everyone away. Check out our photo gallery below to get the behind-the-scenes view of the show!
