An uproarious, laugh-a-minute show, with a cast of lovable characters you won’t soon forget. So, don’t miss seeing the MacAfee family and the residents of Sweet Apple, Ohio, go topsy-turvy when the hip swinging, teen idol Conrad Birdie comes to town to serenade one lucky fan before he enters the Army. A fabulous musical for all ages.
