About Bye Bye Birdie
The year is 1958, and the much-adored rock-and-roll idol -- Conrad Birdie -- has been drafted into the US army. His songwriter and agent, Albert, and Albert’s secretary and some-time girlfriend, Rosie, hatch a plan for a farewell performance to take place on The Ed Sullivan Show, which they hope will help sell Birdie’s new song “One Last Kiss,” and ultimately save Almaelou records from going under. To cap off the performance, Birdie will actually give ‘one last kiss’ to Kim MacAfee, an avid member of the Conrad Birdie fan club from Sweet Apple, Ohio.
When Albert and Rosie head to Sweet Apple to prepare for Birdie’s arrival, things start to unravel. Kim’s father is star-struck at the thought of being on The Ed Sullivan Show with his daughter, and Kim’s new steady, Hugo gets jealous at the thought of Kim kissing Conrad on national television.
This is an award winning, crowd favorite musical with catchy songs, dancing, and excitement! It's sure to be a rockin' good time!
The Old Barn Community Theatre
It was Christmas in 1998 that The Old Barn Community Theatre first opened its doors. The very first production was “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”. Now it has been over 20 years since that first show. For 22 wonderful years, and in over 100 unique productions, talented individuals, too numerous to count, have donated energy, time and financial assistance to this incredible project.
Our goal, for 22 years, has been to take you to a different time and place with each visit. We have wanted to be a theatre where you could bring your family and for two hours or so, leave "life" behind and travel with us to someplace new. Next to a river, in and Old Barn, in the middle of nowhere, that is sometimes too cold and sometimes too hot and where we always pray the bathrooms will work, we have tried to bring a taste of Broadway - a taste of live theatre to you. We hope you have found our attempts successful.
Now we continue with what we hope will be many more years of fun, laughter, and memories, Wherever our talented directors, actors, and technicians choose to take you - COME ALONG - and enjoy the journey. It wouldn't be nearly as fun without you. We want you to feel that The Old Barn Community Theatre is YOUR theatre. Together, let's see what magic lies ahead.
