Bye-Bye Birdie

June 1-3, 8-10, 15-17

This musical, inspired by Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army, centers around Conrad Birdie. Conrad has just been drafted to the army. As a farewell, the rock and roll star is scheduled to sing Albert Peterson’s “One Last Kiss” and kiss a girl from Sweet Apple, Ohio live on the Ed Sullivan Show. However, Conrad’s hip-thrusting makes more than one man in town uncomfortable. Many of these men want to stop the show from occurring. Sponsored by Edna Mae Peddicord Trust with Wamego Community Foundation.
