THE SHOW

ByeBye Birdie is one of the most captivating musical shows of our time. It is a satire done with the fondest affection, telling the story of a rock and roll singer in the early ’60s about to be inducted into the army as well as the lives that he touches including his agent, his agent’s frustrated secretary, and the people of Sweet Apple, Ohio. An English Teacher, What Did I Ever See in Him?, Put on a Happy Face, One Boy, A Lot of Livin’ to Do, Kids, Rosie, and Spanish Rose are musical theatre classics. ByeBye Birdie is imaginative with a good deal of frivolity and old-fashioned, family fun. It gives an insight into the everyday life that is very much part of all of us.
