The MacArthur Fine Arts Department will present the Tony Award winning musical, Bye Bye Birdie. Performances will be February 6, 7, & 8 at 7pm there will also be a matinee performance on Saturday, February 8 at 2:30pm.
Bye Bye Birdie is a stage musical with a book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse and is a satire on American society set in the 1950's. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. The rock star character's name, "Conrad Birdie," is word play on the name of Conway Twitty. Twitty is best remembered for his long career as a country music star, but before that, in the late 1950s, he was one of Presley's rock 'n' roll rivals.
