Bye Bye Birdie

Clarification of Crew Call Times

What a great weekend of rehearsals! The show is really coming along! We are already looking forward to next weekend.

We realized that the call times for crew could have been clearer on the rehearsal schedule. We apologize for any confusion! To clarify, here are the crew call times for our remaining rehearsals at Summit View.

Please let Shannon know if you have any questions at

Thank YOU!

All of us at Journey Theater would like to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to the program in so many ways. Sometimes your acts of generosity may happen in a way that we may not hear about directly (a donated auction item, extra money put toward committee work, etc.). But we want you to know…we see you, we are grateful, and the impact you are having on so many is immeasurable. Thank you for the difference you are making in this beautiful community.

Show Shoe Information

Here are the shoes needed for cast members. Please plan to have show shoes by the Costume Parade on Feb. 18th, and bring them to rehearsal that day.

All Teen Chorus and Youth Ensemble girls will need white Ked-type shoes. Teen/Youth girls shoe example
All Teen Chorus and Youth Ensemble boys will need black high top Converse-style shoes. Teen/Youth boys shoe example
All Parent girls will need black character shoes similar to these: (if they already own another black mary-jane style shoe, that will work) Parent girls shoe example
All Parent boys will need dress shoes in black or brown. Parent boys shoe example
Questions? Please reach out to Shannon at Thank you!

Costume Fittings

Any cast members that have not yet had a costume fitting, please plan to come to the costumes room on Monday, Feb. 6th, between 5:30 and 8:45pm. Be sure to wear your unders, as we need to keep bathrooms open for those who need them. Please keep in mind that students should not miss class for their fittings, but instead, plan to come before or after class if they are enrolled on Monday night.
If you are unable to make it on Monday, please contact Katie Fisher, Costumes Chair, at to arrange another time.
The costumes are located at Crosspointe Baptist Church, 9810 NE 76th St., Vancouver. As you enter the building, follow the hallway to the right around to rooms 301-303.
Thank you!

Show Help

We could use a few extra helpers on show days, either in concessions or as ushers. If there are any adults or older teens not serving on a parent committee who would like to help out, please let Shannon know at



Special Acknowledgements for Program

If there is any person or business who donated time or materials to the show who are not on a Parent Committee, we’d like to recognize them in our program. If you know of any such individuals or businesses, please reach out to Shannon at


Thank you!

Program Ushers

Do you have someone in your family age 6-18 that isn’t in the cast or crew of Bye Bye Birdie but would like to participate in passing out the programs? The ushers, who pass out the programs, are a part of the pre-show experience and help people get excited about the show. Because of this pre-show experience, please try to dress “casual nice”. You can even dress in a 50s style for fun. Please click the Sign-up Genius link and review the available slots and click on the button to sign up. Children under the age of 11 need a parent helper.
You do receive a ticket for your help. The tickets are pre-assigned seats but they can be changed to seats with your family if you contact Alisha Erickson (text 360-624-8582) for more details. Thank you!

Show Buddies

What is a Show Buddy? Show Buddies are people who know you and watch out for you during the rehearsal and show experience. Turn to your Show Buddies when you have a question, don’t know what to do, or where to go.  They are also your safety check in group if there’s an emergency.  We have Show Buddies to help us encourage one another and build community.

Do I give gifts? No! there should be no gift giving or money spent on your Show Buddies.  Instead, write encouragement notes, or give a high fives. Check in with them and see how they’re doing.  Most importantly: PRAY for them!

When will we meet?  Show Buddies will be introduced during the first rehearsal this Friday.  The director will have times throughout the rehearsal process when Show Buddies get together.
