See "Bye Bye Birdie" this weekend >> The Susquehannock High School Theatre Department will present the musical "Bye Bye Birdie" April 4 to 6, in the high school auditorium.

The show, directed by Will Jenkins, will features two casts for several of the lead roles.

Performances by the Blue cast will take place at 7 p.m. April 4 and 2 p.m. April 5. Performances by the Red cast are scheduled for 7 p.m. April 5 and 2 p.m. April 6.

Tickets are $10 for adults in advance, $11 at the door, $8 for students and senior citizens or $9 at the door and $6 for children 10 and younger.

The story takes place in 1958 and is a satire on American pop culture, based in particular on Elvis Presley. Inspired by the singer and his draft notice into the army in 1957, the story is about rock star Conrad Birdie.

Birdie's agent and songwriter, Albert Peterson, and his secretary, Rose Alvarez, create a publicity stunt to have Birdie record and perform a song before he is sent overseas. He is to give one randomly chosen teenage girl from his fan club a real "last kiss" on The Ed Sullivan Show before he enters the Army. The girl chosen randomly is 15 year-old Kim MacAfee from Sweet Apple, Ohio. Birdie, Peterson, and Alverez set off to Sweet Apple and a mob of flustered teenage girls for the event.
