CTI musical: When Grandma Went to school
Saturday night, June 3, 2017

Our musical for this year is probably even more spectacular than ever! "When Grandma Went to School" takes us back to the 1950s, the heyday of diners, juke boxes, neon light and rock music! We go to the time when Grandma was a young lady in high school. We meet her friends: the diligent students, the bully, the shy one, the athlete, etc. So it is the time for celebrations galore! So come and enjoy the tremendous fifties, enacted by the students of CTI. Invitation attached!
