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.

    Roger Rupp was incredulous when he learned his wheelchair ramp had been taken from his home two weeks ago. Rupp, a U.S. Army veteran, has multiple sclerosis. The 10-foot by 3-foot aluminum ramp helped him access a garage at the rear of his 11th Street house -- or at least it did. Quincy Police say the ramp and two handrails were swiped sometime between Oct. 5 and 6. "I really couldn't believe it," Rupp said. Neither could a group of local volunteers.
