Bird Call: The Musical, a family-friendly comedy featuring a flock of feathered puppets, is flying into Orlando’s ME Theatre on May 18-20, 2018.
Bird Call was created and written by performer Calvin Lester, and was originally conceived as a television series before transforming into a stage production. Bird Call features various styles of puppets, actors, and Broadway-style musical numbers suitable for all ages that will “keep your talons tapping.”
In the quiet town of Peach Pit, Connecticut lives college Professor Wally Zutman. His hobby of birdwatching has risen to the level of obsession as he tries to convince the world that these birds in his backyard can talk. The truth is: they can! In Wally’s very own backyard resides the top rated bird radio station, W.I.N.G. There’s a mutual fascination between Wally and the birds. However the birds must follow a strict code and never speak to humans.
The “extinctively rare” and charming Dodoramius Luckl Duckl Bird is the heart of W.I.N.G. He writes commercial jingles, but dreams of one day reaching stardom in the bird world. Luckl and Wally both find themselves competing with egos, friendships, betrayal, acceptance, and love, all while trying to prevent a genocidal maniac bird from taking over the world.
Bird Call: The Musical will be performed at the ME Theatre (1300 La Quinta Dr, Orlando FL 32809) on May 18, 19, and 20 at 8 p.m., with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on May 19. Tickets are $16 for adults, $13 for children 12 and under. Visit birdcallradio.seatyourself.biz to purchase tickets, and watch this video to see the cast of Bird Call enjoying an outing at Fun Spot:
