Bye Bye Birdie Finishes with Large Crowd

This past Sunday marked the final showing of the Anderson County High School ACT CATS’ rendition of the great comedy, Bye Bye Birdie.  The play, set in the 1950’s, parodies the story of Elvis Presley who was drafted into the Army in 1957.  Conrad Birdie, the featured rock star and played by Dalton Lewis, is the center of attention as young women crave for his attention and his manager, Albert Peterson, played by Trey Darnell, tries to figure out a way to save his career when his star leaves for the army.

For the last showing of the play on Sunday afternoon, the high school students put on a tremendous performance to an unexpectedly large crowd.  Check out the video above to see parts of the show.
