Rock star Conrad Birdie (Simon Shankweiler) is the biggest thing to top the charts. Women love him, men want to be him and teenage girls around the country scream with glee at the mere mention of his name. But when the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson (Aidan Cole/Patrick Gaughan) sees his meal ticket preparing to fly the coop, much to the delight of longtime love Rose Alvarez (Annie Mutz/Zoe Bock), who can’t wait for Albert to ditch the music biz and become something respectable, like an English teacher. Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help them survive Birdie’s departure, Albert and Rose hatch a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant his goodbye kiss on one lucky fan for the entire world to see. Their selection of super fan Kim MacAfee (Isabel Zarrow/Elizabeth Hughes) sends the wholesome enclave of Sweet Apple, Ohio into chaos. Kim’s boyfriend, Hugo (Aidan Cunningham), can’t take the humiliation of his lady love’s televised lip-lock. Rose can’t take another minute of Albert’s distracted ways. And Sweet Apple can’t take its teens’ riotous rebellion, inspired by the arrival of bad-boy Birdie. Will Sweet Apple ever be the same?
