All That Jazz

The Troupe was somewhat smaller that year, with forty-four members.  Dr. George Kramer continued on as Director, assisted by Joseph Murray.  

Leslee Carpenter became the first female trouper to serve as President of the Troupe.

Home Show that year hearkened to the past.  

"The Roaring Twenties--an era in American history which still captures everyone's curiosity with its amazing vitality, social change and invention. The Twenties was filled with glitter, glamour, flappers, speak-easies and a tremendous feeling of energy and life. Come with us tonight as we relive the carefree, vibrant days of the Jazz Age as we present "Razz-Ma-Tazz and all that Jazz".

    The show featured the women on the Balance Beam as Flappers, who started their act doing a Charleston type dance on the beam.  The men on rings represented a somewhat more dark aspect of the era, the Mafia.  The show ended with Women's Synchronized Balancing representing "Women's Suffrage".
