"Bye, Bye Birdie"

July 18, 19 & 20 

Jefferson Transportation and Visitor Center (305 E. Austin)

The musical satire on American society is set in 1958. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of Elvis Presley and his draft notice in the Army. The rock star character's name, "Conrad Birdie" was a word play on the name Conway Twitty, best remembered today for his long career as a country music star, but in the late 1950s, he was Presley's rock and roll rival.

Performances are July 18, 19 and 20 at 7:30 and July 20 at 2pm. Tickets are $17 and available either at the door, in Jefferson at Lafayette Gallery (123 N. Polk), Roys Rails (602 N. Polk), Fashion & Art Revival (115 E. Austin) or online at Etxpa.org or 925-366-7360.
