1951: "Tulip Time"

What wonderful memories! I can still sing the music from this great old operetta. It was the first performed by Hamilton High in their first year of 1931. It was repeated again in 1941, and ten years later, in my year, 1951. The high schools stopped performing the "old fashioned" operettas, which very effectively relegated Gilbert and Sullivan, and other masters of the craft to the musical graveyard.
