The kids of Sweet Apple, Ohio, welcome Conrad Birdie (Jared Oxborough). Key among them is Kim MacAfee (Mollie Fischer) who will receive 'One Last Kiss.'


Nothing comes easily, however. Here Rose Alvarez (Claire Lloyd) talks to the boys at Maude's Bar (left to right): Joel Partyka, Travis Shafer, Adam Moore and Craig Stastny.


Everything seems to be going well until ...


... the Ed Sullivan show is interrupted with Kim's boyfriend, Hugo Peabody (Micah J. L. Kronlokken) appears to punch out Conrad Birdie.


But the show ends as it should, with Rose Alvarez (Claire Lloyd) and Albert Peterson (Tobias Miller), Conrad's agent, getting together.
