(Formerly Plugged Nickel)
SOCIETY OF ENGINEERS
"What Lola Wanted, Lola Got," is the
title of the 1957 Crystal Palace production,
a show which promises to provide a unique
type of entertainment for Fiesta audiences.
Discarding its former name, The
Plugged Nickel, in favor of the new title,
the University of Houston Society of Engineers this year also decided to try an entirely new type of production.
The show's theme, a visit to Fiesta City
by Lola Montez, world-famed European
dancer, is based on historical fact surrounding the actual visit of the real Lola Montez
to the American west shortly after the
American Civil War.
Included in the program are western,
popular, and broadway show tunes, a musical fare designed to please any fun-seeking
Among the dance numbers is the Flora-
dora Sextette, a well-known routine during
the early 1870's, and up to the gay Nineties
A crowd-pleaser in 1956, as well as in
past Fiesta seasons, the Crystal Palace production staff intends to continue this year
to live up to the reputation earned under
its former name.
