HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Tickets go on sale Tuesday for Hannibal High School's upcoming production of "Bye Bye Birdie."

The musical will be performed at 7 p.m. Nov. 8, 9 and 10 in the HHS auditorium.

The show, featuring the music of composer Charles Strouse, tells the story of a rock and roll star, Conrad Birdie, who gets drafted into the Army at the height of his popularity. In a final publicity blitz, Birdie makes plans to give a final concert and kiss a girl from Sweet Apple, Ohio, while singing "One Last Kiss" on the Ed Sullivan Show. But some wrenches are thrown into this plan by local residents who try to prevent the show from being carried out.

Playing featured roles in the musical are senior Hannah Adkison as Rosie Alvarez; senior Taylor Frantz as Albert Peterson; senior Chris Ruhr as Mr. MacAfee; sophomore Ellie Allen as Mrs. MacAfee; senior Kiley Harold as Kim MacAfee; sixth-grader Jordan Shafer as Randolph MacAfee; junior Michael Sydnor as Conrad Birdie; and senior Heather Frantz as Mrs. Peterson.

According to Sara Kurz, HHS's vocal music director, tickets for the show, costing $8 apiece, can be bought starting Tuesday in the HHS office during regular school hours. Tickets also can be purchased from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the auditorium.

Any remaining tickets will be sold before each performance.

"It's still amazing every time I stop and think I was trapped in there, to look and see where I was seated in the driver's seat, and I can't believe there was enough room for me in the car," Le...
