ROSEVILLE, Minn. (October 1st, 2017) –The exuberant cast will “spread sunshine all over the place” this fall as the drama program at Roseville Area High School (RAHS) presents the musical theatre classic “Bye Bye Birdie” October 27th through November 5th in the RAHS Performing Arts Center.
Bye Bye Birdie tells the story of Rock ‘n Roll legend, Conrad Birdie (loosely based on Elvis Presley), who receives a draft notice to serve in the army. As part of a publicity stunt, he travels to the small town of Sweet Apple, Ohio to sing one last song and plant one last kiss on a lucky member of his fan club. The play is set during the Rock n’ Roll era of the 1960’s and features great story-telling and fantastic musical numbers.
