Sara Whitaker is the director and choreographer with the musical direction by Paul and Stacey Davis.
The 1960’s classic BYE BYE BIRDIE the musical; tells the story of an Elvis Presley type rock and roll singer who wears his hair in a pompadour and thick sideburns on his face. He is about to leave for the army. Conrad Birdie, the singer wears gaudy gold costumes and speaks in a rugged voice. His agent, Albert Peterson is a pleasant mild mannered young man. Albert’s faithful secretary (and love interest) Rose Alvarez keeps him and Birdie moving forward in the world. Rosie concocts one final national publicity plan before Conrad heads of to the military. Conrad (Birdie) will give a real kiss to a lucky girl from his fan club on the Ed Sullivan. Kim MacAfee in Sweet Apple, Ohio wins the honor. Her whole world and hometown are thrown into a whirl.
