WCHS prepares for ‘Bye Bye Birdie’

Fifty Webster City High School students are preparing for their production of a classic play.

“Bye Bye Birdie” opens at Prem Sahai Auditorium in the high school on Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m. The show goes on to Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. and on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m.

Director LuAnn Garvey said the timeless play is one that many will remember from their teenage years. She invites the public to attend.

Andrew Wotherspoon is the musical director.

The musical comedy follows 1960’s rock and roll superstar Conrad Birdie who has just been drafted. Songwriter Albert Peterson hopes to strike gold when his fiance of six years, Rosie DeLeon comes up with the idea to have Birdie appear on The Ed Sullivan Show and kiss one of his fans as a goodbye gesture.

Tickets for the WCHS production are available at the door before showtimes. The cost is $5 for adults, $4 for students, and free for those on activity work.

The intermission will be served by WC2DC.
