Juniors, Seniors Drew Full Houses
Besides the evening play practices, many hours of
planning must take place for a successful production,
Talking over "behind the scenes" problems are Mr.
Brooks Harting, assistant director, Louise Schini, Iudy
Hopper and Bon Bowland, student directors, Iayne
Evans, dance choreographer, Mr. Thomas Feit, play
director, and Mr. james Noble, music director.
This PHS production was original in two rese
pects. "Bye Bye, Birdie" was the first musical
comedy done at PHS as far back as memory
goes. Secondly, this years play was a joint
effort of the junior and senior classes, instead
of the usual separate productions.

manager, Albert Peterson, decides that Conrad
will leave his musical profession with the great-
est send-off ever, and so he, along with a flock
of followers, visits Sweet Apple, Ohio, where at
nationally-televised ceremonies, he will give
Kim lViacAfee "One Last Kiss."
The jealousy in Hugo, Kim's boy friend, and
the constant interference from Alberts mother,
help provide many hilarious antics.
"Are you ready?" asks Conrad Birdie fDarwin Hard-
