News Blog Category - News The Marion High School Speech and Drama Association is bringing the classic rock-and-roll musical “Bye Bye Birdie” to local audiences next week. This is a fun, family-friendly show that you won’t want to miss!

MHS students will bring the 1960s to life on stage at the Walton Performing Arts Center, as teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie prepares to say goodbye to stardom in a very public way, as he heads into military life after being drafted for service. Decades after its debut on Broadway, this high-energy show is still a vibrant and fun look at the relationships and life-changing decisions that teenagers face.

Show times are at 7:30 on Friday, Nov. 3, and Saturday, Nov. 4. Tickets are general admission, and $8 for adults, $5 for children/students.

Bye Bye is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark music Library Inc.
