Bellefontaine High School will present its annual spring musical this weekend.

BHS will present Bye Bye Birdie on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 in the high school auditorium.

The story is about Albert Peterson and Rosie Alvarez trying to figure out what to do when their star musical client, Conrad Birdie, is drafted into the army. Their plan is to have him kiss a fan, selected at random, as a "goodbye” just before his departure. The main storyline follows Albert and Rose to Sweet Apple, Ohio, to carry out their plan. However, things do not go entirely according to plan, and the town of Sweet Apple is thrown into chaos.

Tickets can be ordered at

You can also call 937-592-2620 to place an order. Tickets are $10 each.

The large cast has been rehearsing since December.

BHS Director Brice Henry said, “This cast is full of talent that has grown and developed over the course of the rehearsals. They continue to improve and perfect what is sure to be a thoroughly entertaining production.”

Brian Hogan is the assistant director.
