POMEROY — The musical comedy, “Bye Bye Birdie,” will be presented by the MHS Drama Club at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Meigs High School auditorium.
Set in the rockin’ 1950’s, the comedy is about Conrad Birdie, an Elvis-inspired rock ‘n’ roll star, who has just been drafted into the army.
The story line revolves around a publicity stunt where Birdie travels to Sweet Apple, Ohio to bestow a lucky fan girl with “one last kiss” before he reports for duty. His arrival shakes up the small town and results in screaming teenage fan girls, jealous boyfriends, and disapproving parents.
The cast and crew of nearly 40 students bring the story to life with comedy, upbeat rock ‘n’ roll songs, energetic dance numbers, colorful costumes and original set work. Meigs High School English and drama teacher Amy Perrin is the director of the production.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door which opens at 6 p.m.
