Tony Award-winning musical, inspired by the true story of Elvis Presley getting drafted!

When the 1950's rock & roll teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie gets drafted, his managers put together one final publicity event.  Conrad will bid farewell with one last kiss to a randomly selected, typical American teen-age girl: Kim MacAfee, from Sweet Apple, Ohio.  But Kim just agreed to go steady with Hugo Peabody...  

Parental advisory: Mild adult language, drinking, & smoking.
