This loving send-up of the early 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, parents, and rock & roll, remains as fresh, vibrant and relevant as ever.

Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses All-American girl Kim MacAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful and high-energy score, Birdie will transport you to a time when social networking meant going outside!

Fairfield native Tyler Breeding, fresh from his seafaring international tour of The Million Dollar Quartet, leads this regional and local cast as the sexy hunk Conrad Birdie.
