Past Event - High School Spring Musical 2022

Bye Bye Birdie
Presented in Spring 2022

The Grace Christian Academy High School Fine Arts Department will transport audiences to a simpler time as they proudly present the Broadway classic, “Bye Bye Birdie.” Performances for the spring musical will be Thursday and Friday, March 24 and 25 at 6 PM, and Saturday, March 26 at 5 PM.

Written by Michael Stewart, this beloved comedy was inspired by Elvis Presley, who was famously drafted into the US Army in the late 1950s. With tunes from the score of the Lee Adams and Charles Strouse 1950s musical, this show is fun for the whole family!

Set in 1958, “Bye Bye Birdie” follows the story of rock and roll teen heartthrob, Conrad Birdie, played by GCA Senior, James Summers, who travels to Sweet Apple, Ohio in a well-meant publicity stunt and brings chaos to the quiet American town by his arrival.
