Description: Book by Michael Stewart Music by Charles Strouse Lyrics by Lee Adams Bye Bye Birdie is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It tells the story of a rock and roll singer who is about to be inducted into the army. The singer, Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley type, has a pompadour and thick sideburns; he wears gaudy gold costumes and speaks in a rugged voice. Albert Peterson, his agent, is a very pleasant mild mannered young man. Albertís faithful secretary Rose Alvarez keeps him and Birdie moving forward in the world. Rosie concocts one final national publicity plan before Conradís induction. Conrad will bid a typical American teen-age girl goodbye with an all-American kiss. Kim MacAfee in Sweet Apple, Ohio wins the honor. It is a satire done with the fondest affection. ìAn English Teacher,î ìWhat Did I Ever See in Him?,î ìPut on a Happy Face,î ìOne Boy,î ìA Lot of Liviní to Do,î ìKids,î ìRosieî and ìSpanish Roseî are musical theatre classics. This is the tops in imagination and good old fashion fun. BYE BYE BIRDIE is sponsored by Lincoln Benefit Life & Farmers Mutual of Nebraska
