Chattanooga Now 'Bye Bye Birdie' at CCS

March 14th, 2013 by Staff Report in Chattanooga Now - Art

Chattanooga Christian School's Theater Department will present final performances of "Bye Bye Birdie" this weekend.

Written by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse, based on a book by Michael Stewart, the Tony Award-winning musical comedy is set in the 1950s. It tells the story of a rock 'n' roll singer, Conrad Birdie, who is about to be inducted into the Army. As a publicity stunt, his handlers hold a contest to choose a girl for him to bid farewell with an all-American kiss on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

Shows will be presented at 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday, March 14-16, in the CCS Fine Arts Center, 3354 Charger Drive.

Tickets are $12. They may be purchased in advance at ccsk12.com. For more information, call 423-902-3661.
