The Nifty Fifties is a nostalgic look at a colorful era in American history. The musical centers on the teen-aged culture and the rise of rock and roll. One character, Ziggy Springer is loosely based on Elvis Presley, and the songs are reminiscent of the actual songs of the period. References are made to the “car of the future,” the Edsel, and a popular movie featuring Steve McQueen, The Blob.
The public is encouraged to revisit with the Troy Drama Department this era of “The Nifty Fifties.”
