Inspired by Elvis Presley's draft into the Army in 1957, Bye Bye Birdie centers on teen idol Conrad Birdie and the lucky girl chosen to give him a farewell kiss before he leaves for war. A near riot ensues in a small Midwestern town as girls love him, boys despise him and fainting women follow his every move. Come back in time with us to the 1950s when innocence was prized and goofiness was king. Put on a Happy Face and One Last Kiss are just two of the songs that will make you want to jump to your feet and dance! A good-natured swipe at popular culture, rock 'n' roll and American life in the 1950s.
