Pop Idol Mania is alive and well at Seoul Foreign School as the Middle School prepares for its upcoming production of the musical Bye Bye Birdie. The Lyso Center is set to be overrun by screaming teens as the small town of Sweet Apple, Ohio prepares for the farewell tour of rock star Conrad Birdie, who has just been drafted into the army, breaking the hearts of young teen girls around the country. Conrad's entry into the army is even more devastating for Albert Peterson, Birdie's struggling agent/songwriter. Albert's longtime, long suffering girlfriend, Rosie, who wants to settle down and see Albert fulfill his early dreams of becoming an English teacher, encourages Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform on the Ed Sullivan show to a fan randomly selected in a contest. The scheme works when young Ohio teenager Kim MacAfee is declared the winner. However, the quiet town of Sweet Apple is unexpectedly overcome with "Birdie fever". Albert's meddling mother, Mae Peterson, doesn't approve of Rosie, and no one is prepared for the jealously of Kim's new steady, Hugo.
