Bye Bye Birdie - May 5-21

Before Beatlemania, before Beiber Fever, came hipswingin’
teen idol Conrad Birdie (loosely based on Elvis),
who, to the dismay of his adoring fans, is about to be
drafted into the army by Uncle Sam. In Bye Bye Birdie, the
1950’s rock-n-roll musical comedy, Birdie’s agent, Albert
and his secretary/girlfriend, Rosie, cook up a plan to send
him off in style. They must write Birdie a new hit song and
have him bestow “one last kiss” on a lucky fan, live on
the Ed Sullivan Show. A town full of colorful characters
including crazed teenagers, a jealous boyfriend, and a
spotlight stealing father make for a rollicking good time.
In addition to the popular silver screen adaptation starring
Ann Margaret, Bye Bye Birdie is a Tony Award winner for
Best Musical and features such beloved songs as “Put on
A Happy Face,” “Kids,” “The Telephone Hour” and “A Lot
of Livin’ To Do.”
