More than 100 Point Borough High School students will bring rock-n-roll to the stage when they perform the American musical classic, “Bye, Bye Birdie” opening March 21.
Tickets for the performances at the Loren D. Donley Center for the Performing Arts at are $8 each for all ages. The shows are 7 p.m. March 21 and 22 and 7:30 p.m. March 23 and 24.
The story begins when rock-n-roll superstar and teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie prepares to join the Army.
Before he goes off to fight for his country, his agent stages the publicity stunt of the year: one lucky fan will win a good-bye kiss from Birdie on the nationally televised Ed Sullivan show.
The lucky winner is all American-girl Kim McAfee, whose sudden fame creates chaos in her small town and in her life.
Songs included in this fun energetic musical are: "The Telephone Hour," "One Boy," "One Last Kiss," "A Lot of Livin’ to Do," "Kids" and "Put on a Happy Face."
