A loving 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 MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss.
Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for actors, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE continues to thrill audiences around the world.
Bye, Bye Birdie is a fun universal story!!
It is not a story that we will tell with a particular look for any of the characters in the show.
All of the characters will instead be a diverse group of actors representing all people.
Theatre is an imaginative form, not a literal one.
The story of Bye, Bye Birdie is one that appeals and applies to all people and our casting will reflect that truth.
