    Bye Bye Birdie was first produced on Broadway in 1962, and was later adapted for film. In 1995, the remake, a made for television special followed the play storyline more closely, than the original film.

    Bye Bye Birdie revolves around Rock & Roll Superstar Conrad Birdie and his agent, Albert Peterson, who has gone into debt promoting him. All of Alberts hard work is finally going to pay off when Birdie is drafted into the Army. To make matters worse, Rosie, Albert’s long time secretary and love interest, quits. She’s waited eight years for Albert to quit the music business and become a “settled down English teacher.” Rosie comes up with a plan to pay off Albert’s debts by staging a publicity stunt prior to Birdie leaving for the Army. On the Ed Sullivan Show, one lucky girl will be given a “Last Kiss” by Conrad Birdie before he goes off to the Army. Welcome to Sweet Apple, Ohio, home of Kim MacAffee, the lucky girl, her family, and friends, and a cast of towns people you will not soon forget, not to mention Albert’s long suffering and insufferable mother, Mae. Together they make a cast of characters that will warm your heart, make you laugh, and want to dance along.
