Southside Theatre Guild is excited to present this special engagement!
As a special event, it is NOT a part of our regular season of shows and is not included in your season ticket.
The year is 1960. Conrad Birdie, a hip-thrusting rock and roll superstar akin to Elvis Presley, has been drafted into the army! His agent, Albert Petersen dreams up one last publicity stunt. Conrad will give one farewell kiss to one lucky girl selected from the millions of his adoring fans on the Ed Sullivan Show. The lucky girl is Kim MacAfee, recently pinned girlfriend of Hugo Peabody. Watch what happens in Sweet Apple, Ohio when Conrad, Albert, and Albert's long-suffering girlfriend, Rose come to town. Put on a Happy Face, Got a Lotta Livin' to Do, and Kids! are just a few of the jazz and rock-and-roll inspired songs from this happy musical from the swingin' sixties!
Bye Bye Birdie is presented by special arrangement with Tams-Whitmark Music Library, Inc.
