School Play

The roaring twenties was a colorful decade. Come celebrate the era of fabulous music and meet Polly Pepper, a young flapper who really knows how to live in the time of automobiles, Jazz, Ziegfeld girls and gangsters. Polly is about to turn 18 and inherit a fabulous necklace call the “Ice Garden”. She is planning a madcap birthday party and inviting all her pals. Come meet fabulous characters like Mona of the Crazy Cat Club, Monica Woodsquirrel of radio station WWWW, crime fighter Lt. Fluke, mobsters trying to steal the necklace, and “Flagpole Sitter” Lenny Knickerbocker. Come and see how Polly saves the necklace, saves her aunt from losing money, and becomes the star of the Ziegfeld Follies before she even cuts the cake. Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 at 7pm in the St. Francis Solanus Gym. ADMISSION IS FREE, but donations are welcome!
