Book by Michael Stewart, Music by Charles Strouse, Lyrics by Lee Adams
Originally produced by Edward Padula. Adaptation and support materials for the Young Performers’ Edition developed by iTheatrics under the supervision of Timothy Allen McDonald.
A loving musical send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, Bye Bye Birdie remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses all-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for kids, and a hilarious script, Birdie remains one of the most popular shows in schools across the country.
Bye Bye Birdie - Young Performers' Edition is a special presentation by the preteens of the Richard E. Rauh Conservatory and fully produced by the professional artists of Pittsburgh Musical Theater.
