Notes: An affectionate satire of how American life is changed when Conrad Birdie, a rock and roll singer, heads to Sweet Apple, Ohio to deliver a farewell kiss to one of his biggest fans before he is drafted. Filled with classic Broadway songs like “Put on a Happy Face” and early rock and roll like “Lot of Livin’ to Do,” Bye Bye Birdie is total fun for the whole family. The work is directed by Edgewood College Associate Professor Phil Martin, with book by Mike Stewart, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Lee Adams.
