The musical "Bye Bye Birdie" by Michael Stewart, Charles Strouse, and Lee Adams will be performed by Vermillion High School students on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday May 6, at 2:30 p.m. in the high school performing arts center.
This high energy show tells the story of Conrad Birdie, a 1960's Elvis type rock-n-roll star, who must do one more big publicity stunt before joining the army. He has to kiss a randomly selected teen on a national TV show. Albert, Conrad's agent, has a difficult time making it all happen when his rock star disappears, his meddling mother comes to town, his secretary quits, and an overprotective father and jealous boyfriend threaten Conrad. Recognizable songs like "Put On A Happy Face" and "Kids" are in the show along with many other toe-tapping tunes.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens, and free to those with Vermillion School District activity cards. Tickets can be purchased at the door or the high school office.
