SHOW SUMMARY

BYE BYE BIRDIE is a family-friendly satire that tells the story of a rock and roll singer, an Elvis Presley type called Conrad Birdie, who is about to be inducted into the army. Naturally his fans are devastated, but his agent, Albert Peterson, and Albert's longtime girlfriend, Rosie Alvarez, concocts on final national publicity plan and writes a new tune that Birdie will perform on television to a fan selected in a contest. Young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee is selected to be the lucky girl, but no one has counted on the jealousy of her new boyfriend, her distraught father, Mr. MacAfee or Albert’s controlling mother, Mrs. Mae Peterson. BYE BYE BIRDIE gives an insight into the everyday life that is very much part of us all. It is full of imagination and frivolity; a show that will be enjoyed by the cast as much as the audience. Come enjoy an evening filled with music, laughter and swooning girls!


The Regis Ramblers

The Regis Ramblers is an all-inclusive musical theater club - casting and welcoming any students who express an interest in being involved in a production.  Student led and run, and managed by the Office of Student Activities, annual participation in the club tops 50 students.  In addition to cast members, the Regis Ramblers now includes a thriving technical crew comprised of skilled students who contribute their stagecraft expertise in lighting, sound, set design, props and all of the other areas critical to making a large scale musical production happen.  While students of all academic interests and majors make up the core of the production, the program has benefited from the continued growth of Regis' music department and the continued improvement of performance space that has come with that growth.

As alumni can attest, the Ramblers are proud of their ability to perform at a high level through a variety of challenging venues on the Regis campus, starting with the Science Amphitheater and continuing on for several years in the Student Center Dining Hall.  Beginning with the 2012-13 academic year the Ramblers are eager to perform in the beautiful new Mountain View Room in Claver Hall.

The Regis Ramblers look forward to many more years of providing musical theater entertainment for the Regis community and the Metro-Denver Community.

Where it all Began

The Regis Ramblers musical theater club was started in the fall of 1995, by Regis computer science professor Dr. Dennis Steele and his daughter, Shannan.  Shannan at that time was a student at Regis, and together they began what has become an important piece of the Regis experience for hundreds of students and alumni.  In the spring of 1996, the Ramblers performed their first musical to a sold out audience..."Li'l Abner".  The following years would bring new challenges, teamwork, and a collection of Ramblers alumni who have continued to support and be entertained by the thriving club to which they once belonged.

Since its beginning, Dr. Steele has been, and remains, the backbone of the club, continuing in the role of faculty sponsor. He has contributed as a music director, band member, set builder, and overall source of support for each and every production.  Shannan Steele has choreographed all but two of the annual productions and has served as director/choreographer/vocal music director for the majority of the shows Ramblers has produced. Shannan is a professional actress in the Denver area, starring in award winning productions at the Arvada Center and at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
