‘Nifty 50s’ coming to Glenshire

Staff Reports
Lindsey Rhynard photoTeachers practice for the upcoming play

The Nifty Fifties is coming to Glenshire Elementary School. Join the friends of the Glenshire Stage (FOGS) for this musical comedy tribute to the 1950s, which is being directed by Lois Moore. The stage will be rocking Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, starting at 7 p.m. when the stage turns into Louise’s Luncheonette. The Hippity Hop is sure to be a hit if Gracie can only get rock star Ziggy Springer to perform at the dance. Cruise back to the “good old days” with the staff of Glenshire Elementary for a night you will not soon forget.

This year’s performance is a fundraiser for a horizontal climbing wall in the school’s gym. The P.T.O. will match the funds raised and the Truckee Rotary has already committed $500 towards the project. The horizontal climbing wall will be a great addition to Glenshire’s physical education program.

The show is hilarious, so get your tickets early from any Glenshire staff person or in our school office. Family tickets are $10, for a family of four, adult tickets are $5 and children’s tickets are $3. We will have refreshments (cookies, brownies and cupcakes).
