Shorewood High School Drama chose a musical for its fall production, Bye Bye Birdie. This popular and classic theatre piece contains the well-known song "Put on a Happy Face." Other songs which may be familiar to the audience are "Kids, "You Gotta Be Sincere," "The Telephone Hour," "Spanish Rosie," "Talk to Me," and "One Last Kiss."

The musical is set in 1959. American teens have gone crazy for Conrad Birdie, a rock star in the style of Elvis. Unfortunately, Conrad is about to be drafted into the army and his agent, Albert, needs a great publicity stunt to keep his popularity alive. Albert’s secretary, Rosie, comes up with a plan of pure genius. Conrad will give a goodbye kiss to an ordinary teen girl. And he’ll do it live on television. When Conrad arrives in Ohio to give one last kiss to the lucky girl, he turns the town of Sweet Apple upside down.

“Bye Bye Birdie” will be presented on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 11, 12, 13, and 18, 19, 20 at 7:30 pm in the Shorewood High School theater, 17300 Fremont Ave N.

Tickets are available at Shorewood High School and at Beach House Greetings, 626 NW Richmond Beach Rd, Shoreline 98177. For details, visit the school website or call 206-393-4372.
