"Chelsea Daniels, of Mendon, and Liam Devine, of Franklin, will perform in Dean College’s “Bye Bye Birdie” from Nov. 18 to Nov. 22. 
“Bye Bye Birdie,” set in the 1960s, tells the story of Conrad Birdie, an Elvis-like rock-’n’-roll singer and his hapless agent Albert Peterson. The rock singer travels to a small Ohio town to make his “farewell” television performance and kiss his biggest fan before he is drafted. Songs include “Put on a Happy Face” and “A Lot of Livin’ to Do.” 
The Dean College production will take place at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18-21 and 2 p.m. Nov. 21-22 in the Main Stage within the Campus Center at Dean College, 109 W. Central St., Franklin. Tickets range from $5-$22 and can be purchased online.
