Originally titled Let's Go Steady, the musical is a satire based on American society in the 50's. The story follows America's hottest rock sensation, Conrad Birdie, as he is inducted into the U.S. Army and is inspired by Elvis Presley's own draft notice into the Army.

Bye Bye Birdie runs at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre from 14 August to 4 September.
