Bye Bye Birdie will be performed by the Family Community Theatre July 19-22, 2018 Bye Bye Birdie is a stage musical based on a book by Michael Stewart , with lyrics by Lee Adams and music by Charles Strouse . Originally titled Let's Go Steady , Bye Bye Birdie is set in 1958. The story was inspired by the phenomenon of popular singer Elvis Presley and his draft notice into the Army in 1957. The rock star character's name, "Conrad Birdie", is word play on the name of Conway Twitty . [1] Twitty is best remembered today for his long career as a country music star, but in the late 1950s, he was one of Presley's rock 'n' roll rivals. The original 1960–1961 Broadway production was a Tony Award –winning success. It spawned a London production and several major revivals, a sequel, a 1963 film , and a 1995 television production.
