The students of the Performer's School invite you travel to a time not so long ago.
A loving send-up of the 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses all-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE remains one of the most popular shows across the country.
Hit songs include “Put on a Happy Face,” “One Last Kiss,” “One Boy,” “A Lot of Livin’ to Do,” “Kids!” and “Rosie.”
The Performer's School is the North Shore's premier performance studio for young people, specializing in improving their self-confidence, self-awareness, skills and creativity as they embark on their performing journey.
