Bye Bye Birdie is the big-hearted & hilarious musical extravaganza that won four Tony
Awards including Best Musical. Bye Bye Birdie features a joyous score, a hilarious
book, and so much dancing you will get a workout just watching! Award-winning director Bradley Moore puts a fresh spin on this musical theatre classic that features
an immensely talented cast of local creatives that will knock your bobby socks off!
When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie, his fans are devastated, but no one more
than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson, whose songs Birdie was just about to record.
Albert’s longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will
perform on television and give a goodbye kiss to one lucky fan. The scheme works, with
young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee declared the winner, but no one has counted on the
wrath of her jealous boyfriend. Throw in Albert’s overprotective, dramatic mother,
Kim’s grumpy dad, a town full of excitable teens, and a bunch of folks trying to carve out
their paths in life – Bye Bye Birdie is a gem that delivers two hours of catchy songs and
Piedmont Players Theatre’s cast includes Cassandra Barrier, Lucy Black, Theresa Brandt,
Molly Bronson, Asha Brown, Corina Childs, Maggie Cross, Micah Cross, Bailey Daugherty,
Jonathan Ewart, Caroline Forrester, Rachel Johnson, Daniel Keith, Madison Lee, Jonathan Lodgek, Aidan Melton, Caroline Monroe, Emma Peters, Asher Pethel, Madisyn, Prater, Leslie Roberts, Rozalyn Walton, Wendy Weant, and Dennis Welch.
