Bye Bye Birdie (Young Performer Edition)
A culmination of its Youth Theater Camp, Oceanside Theatre Company (OTC) presents Bye Bye Birdie (Young Performer Edition). A delightful musical featuring 32 local youth performers from across North County, Bye Bye Birdie is the story of a small town rocked by the presence of pop star and heart throb Conrad Birdie. When the military drafts Birdie into the war, his fans are devastated - none more so than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson, whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert’s longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie can perform on television to a lucky fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim MacAfee declared the winner, but trouble ensues as no one anticipated the reaction of Kim’s boyfriend, Hugo.
