Bye Bye Birdie

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 some-time girlfriend 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. When Albert and Rosie head to Sweet Apple to prepare for Birdie’s arrival, things start to unravel. Kim's father is star-struck at the thought of being on The Ed Sullivan Show with his daughter, and Kim's new steady, Hugo gets jealous at the thought of Kim kissing Conrad on national television.

The 3:00 Saturday performance features an all-youth cast.

Join us as we band together for the flood victims of our community this weekend. We will be collecting non-perishable food items in the lobby of the Lerner Theatre this weekend for our production of Bye Bye Birdie. The items will be donated to those affected by the flooding. Premier Arts staff and board will match all food items that are donated. Together, we can show our community what it means to be Elkhart Strong.
