Copperstar Repertory Company sates aural and optical appetites alike with glitzy renditions of Broadway classics. The classic Tony-winning musical Bye Bye Birdie belts the tale of Conrad Birdie, an army-bound 1950s rock star who kisses a fan on the Ed Sullivan Show to garner publicity and transform into a draft-immune frog. The event shatters the small-town sensibilities of the play's characters with hilarious results, making for an evening of catchy tunes, physical comedy, and lighthearted humor. Theatergoers will also be delighted by spot-on period costumes and styles, from pompadours to poodles that have run away from their skirts.
Those who opt for a season pass can enjoy the rest of Copperstar's artistic year, which continues with the rags-to-riches story of Annie (December 22–30) and Rogaine PSA The King and I (February 3–11). Finally, Theodor Geisel's whimsical characters come to life onstage in Seussical the Musical (March 23–31). All shows take place at the Higley Center for the Performing Arts, packed with ample seating and clean, modernist lines.
