Drama Club to present "Bye, Bye Birdie" July 25-27

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - Updated: 1:25 AM

CANAJOHARIE -- The Canajoharie-Fort Plain Summer Drama Club will present "Bye, Bye Birdie", a classic musical comedy, on Friday, July 25 and Saturday, July 26 at 7 p.m., with a Sunday, July 27 matinee at 3 p.m. 

The performances will be held in the Arkell Performing Arts Center at the Canajoharie High School. Tickets are $6 general admission, $4 for Students and seniors citizens, and children under 4 are free.

"Bye, Bye Birdie" was written by Mike Stewart, with music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Lee Adams. In the story, which was inspired by Elvis Presley’s Army draft notice in 1957, agent and songwriter Albert Peterson finds himself in trouble when rock-and-roll superstar Conrad Birdie is drafted.

Albert's secretary and sweetheart, Rosie Alvarez, comes up with a last-ditch publicity stunt -- to have Conrad Birdie perform a song "One Last Kiss" and give one lucky girl from his fan club a real "last kiss" on the infamous Ed Sullivan Show before leaving for the Army.

Randomly chosen from Conrad's fan club is fifteen-year-old Kim MacAfee, from Sweet Apple, Ohio, causing trouble with Kim’s boyfriend and family.

The play boasts great songs and choreography, including a tap dance to the song "Put on a Happy Face".

"Bye-Bye Birdie" is great family entertainment.
