The MVL Drama Department will present “Bye Bye Birdie” for their Spring production. Bye Bye Birdie is a rockin’ musical about famous crooner, Conrad Birdie. It’s the late 50’s and Birdie has been drafted. His fans are devastated, and his manager, Albert Peterson, does not know how he will raise enough money, while Conrad is away, to pay off his debts and marry his longtime girlfriend, Rosie. So, a plan is hatched for Conrad Birdie to sing a new tune to a fan on The Ed Sullivan Show.  Of course, the fan chosen at random has just been pinned by her boyfriend, her father is angling to be on The Ed Sullivan Show with his daughter, Albert’s mother is trying to break up his relationship with Rosie, and the whole small town is not ready for a famous Birdie’s visit.  The show won 4 Tony Awards including best musical, best direction, best choreography, and best leading actor, and brings us wonderful songs such as “Put on a Happy Face,” “Kids,” “The Telephone Hour,” and “A Lot of Livin’ To Do!”
