Before Hairspray or Grease... there was Bye Bye Birdie!! This ultimate Rock –n –Roll musical filled with teenage fun and great songs has something for the entire family. It’s the 1960’s and heartthrob singing sensation Conrad Birdie, loosely based on Elvis Presley, is going into the army. His manger Albert and his secretary Rosie have cooked up a publicity stunt to give him a big send off !
