‘Birdie’ chirps a great tune

Amazing performance: Chief Kanim Middle School is putting on their performance of "Bye Bye Birdie," a musical written by Michael Stewart, Charles Strouse and Lee Adams. (Above) From left to right are Brandon Peterson, playing Albert Perterson; John Butler playing Conrad Birdie; and Rosie Sypher, playing Rose Alvarez. The story is based on a teenage singing idol who is heading to the military and the many admirers along his journey. The singing is comparable to any professional performance and the costuming and acting are top-notch as well.

The play continues this Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m with two performances on Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m.

Over 100 students put together the performance under the direction of Connie S. Bauer with music direction by Tina Worthington and dance direction by Julie Dance.
