Join Weber Middle School students Feb. 8-10 as they step back in time to the 1960s with their winter musical production of "Bye Bye Birdie."
The show tells the story of rock and roll singer, an Elvis Presley type, who is about to be inducted into the army. Conrad Birdie (played by 8th grader Morgan Seftel) will bid a typical American teenage girl, Kim MacAfee (played by 8th grader Katrina Wasserman) farewell with “one last kiss” on the Ed Sullivan Show. His visit to Sweet Apple, Ohio, and the home of Kim MacAfee and her family, throws both the family and the town into turmoil. "Bye Bye Birdie" is upbeat and full of good old-fashioned fun with classic songs such as: “Put on a Happy Face,” “Kids,” and “The Telephone Hour.”
This year's production of "Bye Bye Birdie" is directed by Weber English teacher Stacey Portmore-Davies, musically directed by Salem Elementary music teacher Allison Friedman, and choreographed by Salem 4th grade teacher Stacey Baker. The show features over a hundred talented students in the cast, pit orchestra, and stage crew!
Performances will be held on Friday, Feb. 8 at 7:30pm, Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $5 for general admission, $3 for students and senior citizens, and children five and under are free.
