“Bye Bye Birdie” tells the story of a rock ‘n’ roll singer about to be inducted into the Army. Before he’s inducted, Conrad Birdie descends on Sweet Apple, Ohio, to plant one last kiss on a lucky fan, Kim MacAfee, before a national TV audience. However, she’s pledged to a high school sweetheart, so chaos is bound to ensue.

A play preview will run in the Tuesday, Jan. 22, issue of The Outlook.
