minstrel 1951
[above] First show 1951
Minstrel shows in black-face makeup at Trappe High School (then elementary school) auditorium. Now considered racially insensitive, these shows were produced in Trappe by the Trappe Lions Club in 1951, 1952, & 1953. Although held in the public school auditorium, the show was not a school production.
