Bye, Bye Birdie Set To Open

by Belinda Maloney

One of the most captivating musical shows of our time is how most people describe this show...and you'll soon see why.

Bye, Bye Birdie is the story of Conrad Birdie (Danny Englese) an Elvis-esque singing heart-throb who is abducted into the Army. Albert Peterson (James Carter), his manager is going into debt and has staked his financial future on Conrad's success.  Albert's secretary and would-be sweetheart Rosie (Christi Wallace) comes up with a plan to have Birdie give "One Last Kiss" to one fan, and Kim MacAfee (Rachel Lazaro) from Sweet Apple, Ohio is that lucky girl. Add in a jealous teen boyfriend, (Trevor Meyer as Hugo Peabody), a meddling mother (Laura Henrickson), the energy and spunk of Kim's best friend Ursula (Vicky Lopez) and a cast and chorus of over 40 kids and teens, and together they make a cast of characters that will warm your heart, make you laugh and want to dance along. 

In the capable hands of Director Belinda Maloney, this energetic musical will leave you with a Happy Face all the way home. By turns, funny, warm, and charming, Bye, Bye Birdie will delight audiences of all ages.
