The year is 1960, and rock-and-roll sensation Conrad Birdie is being drafted into the Army. American teenager Kim MacAfee has received the honor of giving him “one last kiss” live on the air of the Ed Sullivan Show.
Meanwhile, Birdie isn’t really interested and his agent, Albert Peterson, is scrambling to keep him in line and out of trouble while his secretary Rosie and his mother vie for his affections in “Bye Bye Birdie.”
Auditions for the Davis Musical Theatre Company’s production of the popular musical will begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday and Monday at DMTC’s Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive.
Performance dates are Nov. 4-27, and Jan Isaacson will direct.
The music is by Charles Strouse, who later wrote the music for “Annie,” with lyrics by Lee Adams and book by Michael Stewart. Bring a prepared song (not from the show); an accompanist will be provided. No taped music or a cappella please.
