LLHS Drama presents The Nifty Fifties, a Musical Comedy

It was the fifties. Captain Midnight decoder rings and hula hoops. Teenage girls dressed in poodle skirts with bobby socks and saddle shoes. Teenage boys imitating Marlon Brando’s black boots and black motorcycle jacket or James Dean’s blue jeans and a white t-shirt. Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show. American Bandstand. And, of course, there was a place in every town where kids would gather to have a coke and some fries after school, while listening to the jukebox.
