MHS Presenting Bye Bye Birdie

Posted: Updated:

Tonight the spotlight will shine on Minot High School theater students as they present Bye Bye Birdie.

Bye Bye Birdie is a satirical musical set in the 1950s.

The lead character is Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley-like teen idol who finds out he will be drafted into the military.

The story then revolves around Birdie's final performance on the Ed Sullivan show.

Those involved with the musical say a lot of hard work has gone into the production.

(Alphonse Koenigsman, Bye Bye Birdie)"It's a great opportunity for a lot of kids to participate in this type of show here. Musicals are usually a larger cast and so they get that real sense of teamwork."

(Shelby Cross, Bye Bye Birdie Senior Cast Member)"It's awesome. Obviously, it's stressful and it's a high-intensity kind of thing, but it all kind of comes down as really worth it in the end and it's all fun."

The show opens tonight at 7:30 and again tomorrow and Saturday at that time in the Arvel Graving Theater at Magic City Campus.

Tickets can be purchased at the school.

The theater house opens at 7:00.
