The Lakeside Lutheran drama department nurtures and develops the God-given gifts of students both in front and behind the curtain. Dozens of students can be involved in this co-curricular, whether as actors, costumers, set builders, artists, videographers or audio technicians.

The department currently offers a play or musical each spring. Auditions begin early in second semester and performances run the last weekend in April.


The Nifty Fifties, a Musical Comedy




Spring 2018 Musical Comedy

A musical comedy that will have you cheering! Gracie Stanley has gotten herself in hot water by promising to deliver her distant cousin, rock star Ziggy Springer, for the high school Hippity Hop at Louise’s Luncheonette. Ziggy’s manager doesn’t want his client performing anywhere without pay, so Gracie and her friends have to produce a double — and fast! They use a singing soda jerk and plan to have him perform in the dark! It won’t be easy for Gracie to get away with this one with her rival, snooty Muffin Mansfield, waiting for her to flop. Meanwhile, Louise has her own problems. The building’s owner forbids the dance and plans to turn the eatery into a dry cleaner. With all of this happening, Gracie’s brother is living in terror because he’s smashed up a Harley belonging to Sinbad Gallucci, a bad dude. Included in the sensational Francoeur fifties score: ’Bop-A-Lu-Bop Dance Party,’ ’Teen Queen,’ ’It’s Tough To Be a Teenager In Love’ & the hilarious ’It Was The Blob.’
