Bye Bye Birdie

Although most of the Island is concerned with saying hello to the birdies as spring begins to unfold, the Tisbury School seventh and eighth graders are riding against the grain by saying goodbye to the birdies.

Well, actually no real birds are involved at all. Nor pinkletinks, crocuses or snowdrops.

The students are putting on a performance of the classic musical Bye Bye Birdie. The original starred Dick Van Dyke, Janet Leigh and Ann Margret in a story about a rock star giving a farewell concert after he is drafted.

The performances take place at the Tisbury School gymnasium on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $7 or $25 total for a family at the door.
