About: Will Conrad Birdie be drafted? How can they take the rock idol away from the screaming teens? This is the center of the story line for the fun family musical "Bye, Bye, Birdie" presented by the North Central College Summer Music Theatre this August.

One lucky girl from Sweetapple, Ohio, will get a farewell kiss from Conrad on national television. Well, that's the plan anyway.

About: North Central College presents a double bill of two of Gilbert and Sullivan's earliest and most charming works. "Trial by jury," a sung-through piece in which a jilted bride takes her groom to court. This is a musical delight that overflows with romance and satire. "The Sorcerer" is a tale of magic and mix-ups in which a betrothed man attempts to level social ranks and share the gift of love by slipping a love potion in his guest's tea.
