Since this button is on the movie clip timeline, not the main timeline, you
must use TellTarget:

On (press)
TellTarget (target: /)
Go to and Play (55)
End TellTarget
End On

Also I would advise you to use frame labels instead of numbers. It will be
less confusing, especially if you add or delete frames from the timeline.
Use labels that start with an alpha (not numeric) character. In the future,
try to avoid using scenes as they make TellTarget, use of movie clips, and
sound, problematic.
