The Chenery Middle School Theater will be performing the Broadway standard BYE BYE BIRDIE over three nights at the Chenery Middle School Auditorium.
Set in 1958, the musical was inspired by Elvis Presley’s draft induction into the Army in 1957. In the show, rock star Conrad Birdie is sent on one final publicity stunt before entering the Army; to give one lucky girl, chosen randomly from his fan club, a real “last kiss” on The Ed Sullivan Show. Songs from the show include “Put on a Happy Face”, “Kids”, “The Telephone Hour” and “A Lot of Livin’ to Do”.
The curtain will rise on:
- Thursday, May 17 at 7 p.m.
- Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, May 19 at 7 p.m.
ADULTS: $10 in advance, $12 at the door
