The musical “Bye Bye Birdie” opens today, Friday, Jan. 10, at the Renton Civic Theatre.

Produced by the Hi-Liners, a Burien-based production company, the classic play tells the story of an Elvis-type rock and roll singer, who is about to be inducted into the army. It features the songs “Put on a Happy Face,” “A Lot of Livin’ to Do,” “Kids” and “Spanish Rose,” among others.

Renton Civic Theatre Artist Director Bill Huls reached out to the Hi-Liners, after the group’s regular space, the Burien Annex Auditorium, was damaged by fire and smoke Dec. 10 in a suspected arson.

The show runs Jan. 10 to 12 and 17 to 19 and all seats are $12. For more information, visit
