The Greenport High School Drama Club will present “Bye Bye Birdie” on April 4, 5 and 6 in the district auditorium.
In the satirical musical, set in 1958, a small-town teenager is chosen to receive “one last kiss” from rock star Conrad Birdie — based on Elvis Presley — before he goes into the Army. The show is known for its songs “Put On a Happy Face” and “Kids.”
Friday’s and Saturday’s performances start at 7 p.m. and Sunday’s begins at 2:30 p.m. A pasta luncheon will precede the matinee, from 12:30 to 1:30.
Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for students with ID or senior citizens. Combined lunch and show tickets: adults, $20; students/senior citizens, $15.
Tickets are available at the school’s main office, Floyd Memorial Library, from cast members or by emailing [email protected].
