It’s the early 1960s and teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted into the army, much to the dismay of his adoring fanbase of teenage girls. Worried about his firm, New York based songwriter Albert and his secretary Rose come up with a last-ditch publicity stunt: Conrad will sing a brand new song (written by Albert) titled “One Last Kiss” on the Ed Sullivan show and give one lucky member of his fan club a real “last kiss” before going into the army. A loving send-up of the era, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, Bye Bye Birdie remains as fresh and vibrant as ever.

November 16-18 and 23-25

Friday and Saturday Evening Performances at 7:30 pm

Buena Park Youth Theatre was created over 35 years ago, by former long time Cultural and Fine Arts Commissioner Ruth Walp, in response to public school budget cutbacks in the arts.  The city program funds two musical theatre productions that run for two week at Buena Park High School.  Friends of Buena Park Youth Theatre is a non-profit organization that was created over 20 years ago as a supplementary fund raising collective of parents whose children were (or are presently) participants of the Buena Park Youth Theatre program.  This is a ticketed performance.
