American rockstar and heartthrob, Conrad Birdie, is the biggest thing to top the charts in 1958! When the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson and his secretary Rose, devise a last-ditch publicity stunt to help them survive Birdie’s departure. They send Conrad to Sweet Apple, Ohio to give his goodbye kiss to one lucky fan on the Ed Sullivan Show, causing all sorts of hilarious chaos in this small town!
“I decided on Bye Bye Birdie, because it has something in it for every generation to relate to, and it allows for many students to have highlighted moments to shine. The 50’s era is always fun to play, and the music’s upbeat tempo and high energy will be enjoyable for all students.”
