The ULM Visual and Performing Arts Department is presenting Bye Bye Birdie! March 22-25 in the Brown Auditorium. The show features the comedy, confusion, and love that comes from rock star "Conrad Birdie" being drafted in the army.

The show follows struggling songwriter Albert Peterson and his longtime girlfriend, Rosie, as they work out how to get out of debt after rock star Conrad Birdie is drafted in the army. "Albert is a bit of a mama's boy, and his love interest Rosie doesn't like that," says Gray Hall, one of the two actors playing Albert Peterson.
