Synopsis

Rock star Conrad Birdie is the biggest thing to top the charts. Women love him, men want to be him, and teenage girls scream at the mere mention of his name. But when the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson and his longtime love Rose Alvarez hatch a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant a goodbye kiss on one lucky fan to be televised on live TV. Their selection of Kim MacAfee sends wholesome Sweet Apple, Ohio, into chaos. Kim’s boyfriend, Hugo, can’t take the humiliation, Rose can’t take another minute of Albert’s devotion to the music business, and Sweet Apple can’t take its teens’ riotous “Rock-n-Roll” rebellion. Will Sweet Apple ever be the same?

Bye Bye Birdie is a family show through and through. Colorful, cute, and sweet, this classic includes some of the most famous songs in musical theater, including “Put On a Happy Face,” “Kids” and the lively number “A Lot of Livin’ to Do.”

Bye Bye Birdie opened on Broadway, April 14, 1960, and played for 607 performances starring Chita Rivera and Dick Van Dyke as Rose and Albert. The stage show earned four Tony Awards for Musical, Director, Choreography, and Featured Actor. It also won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Musical.
