The curtain rises on the annual Lausanne Upper School spring play Thursday evening as the Lausanne Upper School Theatre Department proudly presents their production of Charles Strouse’s hit 1950’s musical, BYE BYE BIRDIE.
Teen heartthrob, Conrad Birdie (Sultan Shah ’20) has been drafted. His managers, Albert Peterson (Whit Ford ’20) and Rosie Alvarez (Bri Warner ‘ 21), come up with a final publicity stunt for their troublesome client. Conrad is whisked away to cheery Sweet Apple Ohio where the lucky teen fan, Kim Macafee (Sophie Faughnan ’20) will receive his “One Last Kiss” before shipping out.
Hilarity ensues when Kim’s lovesick boyfriend (Marc Bonnot ’20), her overprotective parents (Saad Khan ’20 and Audrey Chatfield ’20), and Albert’s nosy mother (Sophie Manis ’21) get involved.
Filled with fun characters, lively dances and memorable songs such as “Put on A Happy Face,” “Telephone Hour” and “Kids,” this is a musical comedy sure to make you smile.
Performances are Thursday, February 20, Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, February 23 at 2:00 pm in the Elder Performing Arts Center.
Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults.
