Plaza Theatre offered the best in entertainment

Harry J. Williams’ gorgeous rendering for the Plaza Theatre, 1935.

Students from Palm Springs High School were set to play the Plaza Theatre in February 1948, according to The Desert Sun. “Featuring tantalizing hula dancers, singing mutineers, and lovely mermaids … (in a) comic operetta about the gay adventures of a wealthy young college girl and her friends who cruise to the South Sea Isle of Cocos, because life has become rather dull at school. The gold detecting invention of Professor Molecule causes no end of laughs and adventure when it uncovers a band of mutineers who have been sleeping for 200 years. While the party tries to stall the pirates off about their lost treasure, the chaperone of the group decides to entertain them by teaching some the graceful ballet. The results must be seen to be appreciated.”
