“Bye Bye Birdie,” originally produced by Edward Padula, is a musical set in the 1950s and tells the story of heartthrob Conrad Birdie, who is inducted into the army. His managers plan for him to give his “one last kiss” to a teenager named Kim MacAfee.

The musical director for the Eisenhower performance is Jarrett Farkas. The cast includes David Meade as Albert Peterson, Hallie Lippey as Rose Alverez and Ian Katz as Conrad Birdie.

“The show promises to be both captivating and entertaining,” Idell said.
