If you think you've spotted Elvis down at the Annapolis City Dock this summer, don't bother calling the National Enquirer.Chances are the '50s rocker will turn out to be the great Conrad Birdie, which isn't surprising, because the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre's junior production of "Bye Bye Birdie" is playing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings through July 26."Birdie," you'll recall, is Broadway's spoof of the Elvis phenomenon and of teen-age life in the '50s. As the rock star is about to be drafted into the Army, his manager, Albert Peterson, and Albert's loving secretary, Rose Alvarez, plot to extract one last payday from their meal ticket with the gyrating hips.

Congratulations to Marriotts Ridge High School for an excellent production of "Bye, Bye Birdie. " The directors, cast and all those who were involved with the show should be very proud of themselves. I am very disappointed that the Columbia Flier did not cover this show. I always see articles about high school sports, but I rarely see an article about the arts. Please consider reporting about the shows and other arts. Sunny Cohen Columbia

" The kiss is to be delivered on "The Ed Sullivan Show" to the president of the Sweet Apple fan club, teenager Kim MacAfee.

She came to me with this joyous news because I was her friend and the mother of sons.The reverie of the moment was shattered by the thunderous sound of approaching Nikes."Did you go to the store?

By no stretch is Bye Bye Birdie a classic Broadway musical. But the dated nature of the 1960 show delivers multigenerational appeal in the current Children's Theatre of Annapolis production, where youthful energy and innocence combine fun with nostalgia. Parents in the audience will remember rotary phones and may be aware of the identity of publisher Henry Luce. Only the grandparents likely willpick up the references to "The Shadow" (a 1930s radio detective) or Sammy Kaye (a swing-and-sway '40s bandleader)

"The 38-member cast has worked incredibly hard, and you can feel the excitement from them and the crew at every rehearsal," producer Deb Engler said.
