Tibbits Young Audiences presents The Nifty Fifties

Tickets on sale soon!

The Tibbits Young Audience’s team is excited to get the students back on stage with The Nifty Fifties.

The Nifty Fifties by Tim Kelly with music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur is a funny, top-tapping tribute to the 1950s. It tells the story of Gracie Stanley, who has gotten herself into hot water by promising to deliver her distant cousin, rock star Ziggy Springer, for the high school dance.  When Ziggy is unavailable she and her friends decide to fake his appearance. The story takes some turns and features memorable characters include a singing soda jerk, a snooty rival, a “totally square” building owner, a paranoid brother, a beatnik gang and its “bad dude” leader.

The Nifty Fifties will be directed by Julia Littley and produced by Tirsha Odisher with musical direction by Jayne Lillis. This production is generously sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Coldwater.

Tibbits Young Audiences offers programs both for and by area youth to develop their interest in the arts. Two shows yearly, a non-musical in the fall and a musical in the spring, provide students an enjoyable introduction to the world of theatre. By putting on a show, they learn teamwork, discipline, theatre skills, self confidence and an appreciation for the arts.
