The Signal Mountain High School Theatre has many reasons to be proud. All its productions are done entirely by the Signal Mountain theatre students. These high school students engage in designing and building the full production from concept to the finished the production. This spring, the SMHS Theatre Department is proud to present their production of Bye Bye Birdie: A Musical Comedy with book by Michael Stewart, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Lee Adams. The production will be directed by John Lennon with Choreography by Christi Barr and Musical Direction under Jan Johnson.
Bye Bye Birdie tells the tale of songwriter Albert Peterson, who realizes his business will be destroyed when the hugely popular singer Conrad Birdie is drafted into the army. Romance, hilarity, mayhem, and quite a bit of dancing are featured in this musical. The SMHS students have stepped up the production by adding an edgy element to this timeless musical. Join these high school students and see what they’ve done to bring new life to the story of Conrad Birdie.. It’s sure to be fun for the whole family!
Bye Bye Birdie will be running April 20, 21, 22 at 7:00pm and a matinee showing April 23 at 2:00pm. All performances will take place in the Signal Mountain Middle/High School Theatre.
