SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Playhouse will present the classic American musical "Bye Bye Birdie" July 27 - August 5. Based on a book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams and music by Charles Strouse, performances of "Bye Bye Birdie" will take place July 27, 28, August 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m., and matinees July 29 and August 5 at 2 p.m.

It's the 1960s, Army-bound rock star Conrad Birdie is the talk of the town, and All-American girl Kim MacAfee is chosen for a very public farewell kiss before his departure. Kids, parents, and 'show biz' people hilariously collide as Sweet Apple, OH, prepares for the big event.

With two Broadway runs -- the original production won four Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', in 1961 --  and a hit motion picture with Dick Van Dyke reprising his award-winning Broadway performance, the classic musical is a fun time for the whole family.
