The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock-and-roll idol -- Conrad Birdie -- has been drafted into the US army. His songwriter and agent, Albert, and Albert’s secretary and lover, Rosie, hatch a plan for a farewell performance to take place on the Ed Sullivan show, which they hope will help sell Birdie’s new song “One Last Kiss”, and ultimately save Almaelou records from going under. To cap off the performance, Birdie will actually give ‘one-last-kiss’ to Kim MacAfee, an avid member of the Conrad Birdie fan club from Sweet Apple, Ohio.
The Daily News released a great article on Mainstage's production of Bye Bye Birdie, (even catching a few comments from the stars of the show) which you can read here.
Bye Bye Birdie plays for one more weekend at R. A. Long, with performances Friday and Saturday (Nov. 20, 21) at 7:30 pm, and a matinee on Sunday (Nov. 22) at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $5 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults. Don't miss this exceedingly fun student production at Mainstage Theatre!
