THREE THINGS TO DO IN LOGAN COUNTY THIS WEEKEND!

SUPPORT THE LOCAL THESPIANS

Sterling High School will present Bye Bye Birdie in three performances, Thurs-Fri-Sat, March 22-23-24 in the SHS Frank Hunter Theater. Doors open at 6:30 pm, with curtains at 7 pm.

When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie, his fans are devastated, but none more 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 will perform on television to a fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee declared the winner, but no one has counted on the jealous wrath of her boyfriend. Tickets are $7 and are available at the door.
