A loving send-up of the 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, Bye, Bye Birdie Young Performers’ Editionremains 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 youth actors, and a hilarious script, Bye, Bye Birdie Young Performers’ Editioncontinues to thrill audiences around the world.
