“Bye Bye Birdie” by Michael Stewart, Charles Strouse, and Lee Adams is a satire that takes place in 1958 and is centered around an Elvis Presley type rock and roll superstar named Conrad Birdie. Conrad has been drafted into the army so his agent, Albert Peterson, and his secretary, Rosie Alvarez, plan a huge farewell performance for Birdie on the Ed Sullivan Show. The show is to end with a kiss being bestowed on a lucky girl from Birdie’s fan club. The excitement begins as Birdie arrives in the town of Sweet Apple to meet the girl and her family.

A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Piedmont Regional Library as the WBCT Community Service recipient for this show. WBCT donates money from every show to a nonprofit group in Barrow County as part of their “community” theatre efforts.
