Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, “Bye Bye Birdie” tells the story of teenage heartthrob Conrad Birdie’s draft into the armed forces and a contest for a farewell kiss from him live on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The show has many laughs and great songs, including “Put On A Happy Face,” “A Lot of Livin’ To Do,” “One Last Kiss,” and the riotous lament of parents with teenagers “What’s The Matter With Kids Today?”

In the event that tickets remain for the concert, Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club,” one hour prior to the event. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before the event for $10 each.
