ramafic ociefg "And all the men and women merely players . . .H Wvhen Shakespeare wrote these words for "As You Like It" land we dol. he certainly must have had the Davis DRAMATIC SOCIETY in mind. Before anyone could become a member of this organization. he had a tryout which con- sisted of the "defendant's" acting out a selection from a play of his choice, as well as a pantomime before the hjuryn of D. S. members and "Judge" Feaster. faculty adviser. The first act of "The History of the Dra- matic Societyw began in 1914 under the title of the Junior Dramatic Society, the sole purpose of this organization was to enjoy Broadway pro- ductions. and to read one-act plays at club meet- ings. During the NSecond Act", from 1922 to about 1940, the club's activities expanded to holding social gatherings at the homes of mem- bers and giving an annual play in the assembly. This assembly program went over so well that the G. O. suggested having the D. S. give evening performances and charge admission. ln Act 111, the finale of this a'History of the D. S.", we are well aware of the splendid performances and successful productions given ROW 1: J. Gillis, S. Ostrowsky, F. Bernstein, V. Pariser, M. Miller, H. Schecter, P. Zipes, S. Rainess, P. Plummer, J. Hecht, .l. Smyserg ROW 3: F. Hoffman, R. Piersall. D. Sagman, L. Sorgi, L. Walther, .l. Furman, N. Kerewsky, S. Rabbino, M. Horowitz, E. Skerrit. B. Schneer, W. Tiger, W. Carlin. R. Silber, R. Rabking ROW 4: M. McCarthy, M. Hudes, E. Jacobson, P. Circelli by the members of this talented group. These versatile actors have produced everything from "Little Women" 119221 to "1dylls of the King" 119433 , with more recent hits like 'QLost Horizon", "Dear Ruth", the current L'Smilin' Through", and 'fl Remember Mama". This organization certainly deserves our own Davis Academy Award! Whom do you predict to be the "toast of Broadway" in 1960? It is sure to be a former member of the NATIONAL THESPIANS, the group that obtained the highest possible honor available to high school dramatics students. Versatility was the keyword for success, because in order to qualify, each candidate par- ticipated in at least 200 hours of active work, staging, directing, and preparing properties as well as appearing behind the footlights. Lights! Camera! Action! All set? This was the behind-the-scenes view of the everready STAGE CREW. These Htechniciansw never ceased in their activity, it seemed, and since the scenery could help either to make or break each play, they were, in part, responsible for the success of the D. S. productions. ROW 1: E. .la- cobson, Miss Feaster, J. Morace, S. Ostrowsky. E5 Q52 is-11 'S Wff. CD gg'-I :H is :B B5 IJ rn? QQ E15 FF : s- '4 H. mb! B. 9.5 22. O95 5 me 2, Dv? O gn wi OA. DQ.
