McMurray school to perform Bye Bye Birdie

February 19, 2018 by  

Peters Township High School in McMurray, Pennsylvania recently announced that it will be performing the musical Bye Bye Birdie for its annual musical later next month.

Bye Bye Birdie is a musical that made its debut in the 1960s and was inspired by Elvis Presley’s draft notice. The play centers around rock and roll star Conrad Birdie, who has been drafted into the army. The recording company that signed him is going under and the staff has hatched a plan for Birdie to perform on a major television show and kiss one of his biggest fans. However, shenanigans ensue when people get jealous of Birdie’s planned kiss.

The play will be taking place from March 15 through 17 at 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm and on March 18 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Tickets are currently available online and are priced at $15 for adults and $10 for students. For children under the age of five, there will be no need to purchase a ticket unless the child requires their own seat. There will also be a live ticket sale on March 10 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon in the lobby of the high school.
