Hello, Bye Bye Birdie: the play is back

Covid lockdowns stopped the performance of the play Bye Bye Birdie last year.

And now the actors from Village Hall Players are back for performances at the KMI Hall in Kyogle on March 19, 20, 26 and 27.

The curtain will rise on the Saturday evening shows at 7pm and Sunday matinee shows at 2pm.

Tickets for the show are available at the door. $15 for general admission, $10 for concessions and $5 for children 8 years of age and older and free for children under 8 years of age.

All NSW Health regulations will be in places for the performances.

Here are some photos from dress rehearsals.

A scene from the play Bye Bye Birdie

Here’s a summary of the Bye Bye Birdie story.

In 1958, rock star Conrad Birdie is the biggest thing to top the charts.

Women love him, men want to be him and teenage girls around the country scream with glee at the mere mention of his name.

But when the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson sees his meal ticket preparing to fly the coop (much to the delight of long time love Rose Alvarez, who can’t wait for Albert to ditch the music biz and become something respectable, like an English teacher).

Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help them survive Birdie’s departure, Albert and Rose hatch a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant his goodbye kiss on one lucky fan for the entire world to see.

Their selection of super fan Kim MacAfee sends the wholesome enclave of Sweet Apple, Ohio into chaos.
