An old woman in a hair net and rolled-down stockings sat on a park bench on an empty stage at Roosevelt Middle School on Friday. An old man, walking with a palsied gate on a wobbly cane, smiled when he saw the old woman. When he tried to sit beside her on the bench, she whacked him on the head with her purse, sending him scurrying away. The 400 students in the audience ? who each paid $2 to see the frenetic teacher talent show ? roared with laughter. It was just one of 14 fast-paced and humorous acts the teachers rumbled through to help raise money for the associated student body and to help students blow off some steam.
