A 50's Style Musical Comedy
Produced by Collierville Arts Council

Show will run June 20-29, 2014

Directed by Keith Salter

Winner of 4 Tony Awards, BYE BYE BIRDIE is one of the most captivating musical comedies of our time. It tells the story of a rock and roll singer in the late 1950's who is about to be inducted into the army. The singer, Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley type, will bid a typical American teen-age girl goodbye with an all-American kiss.  The arrival of Birdie in Sweet Apple causes people of all ages to swoon. Sweet Apple parents cannot understand the new generation. BYE BYE BIRDIE is a satire done with the fondest affection.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their 
most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after 
the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although 
the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate 
climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
