"O welcome neighbors" who would go with Shakespeare through the land of
love and jesting. Twelfth Night is enchanting and one of the finest cures of the ages
for a melancholy heart, at least so thinks the Class of '28.
Shipwrecked Viola, who as a page in Duke Orsino's court delivered love messages
of the Duke to Olivia, the charming niece of Sir Toby Belch, was such an unusual lad
that Olivia, instead of yielding to the Duke's entreaties, fell in love with the mes-
senger. Her uncle, Sir Toby, was more content with his friend, Sir Andrew, his
clown, Feste, and servant Maria, than he was interested in his niece's marriage, so he
found great delight in making a laughing stock of the staid Malvolio. Viola
was deeply in trouble, since Olivia claimed her as husband, Sir Toby and Sir Andrew
wanted vengeance for their defeat, and the Duke condemned her for being false,
Wandering Sebastian appeared on the spur of the moment to set matters right while
Feste left a jolly song jingling in our ears.
Dorothea Dow, as Viola and Cesario, showed her skill by keeping "love-sweet"
Viola ever steady at her task, and she made Shakespeare's lines ring with their true
poetry and expression. She made Cesario a mighty charming lad. Maria, played
by Katherine Adams, was clever and alert. We felt her keen sense of fun and loved
her craftiness in tricking Malvolio and in managing matters the way she wanted
them. Stately Olivia too, played by Marian Smith, deserves praise for her dignified
and noble impersonation of that famous lover.
We never knew there were so many fine men in Abbot. Sir Toby Belch! We
certainly do congratulate Mary Piper on making Sir Toby live in such a natural
and likeable manner. Very fine work, Mary! Sir Andrew Aguecheeck, Sir Toby's
bosom companion, played by Elizabeth jackson, won our hearts with his effeminate
actions and his clever capers. He added a nice jolly touch to the play. Malvolio we
loved haughty and smiling. His dramatic reading of the letter, his cross-garters,
yellow stockings and "Smile, ho, honwerelovely. You make a fine Malvolio,Gee-Gee.
Eleanor Leech as Duke Orsino dramatically paved the way for a thrilling drama.
Sebastian was so much like his sister that it kept us busy remembering which person
was Sebastian and which Viola. With his fine work he helped to solve an ever
increasing mystery. Nicely done Connie! Antonio, played by Katherine Borne-
mann relieved tense moments by always appearing to explain matters. Jean Freder-
ick, as Fabian, in a most natural way made us feel his keen desire to trick Malvolio.
The Lords, Ladies, Priest, Sea Captain, officers and gentlemen in waitingall
added a brilliant natural touch which made every part more interesting. And
Barbara Wentworth as Feste created a happy-go-lucky feeling which was most sooth-
ing for an interested audience. 1
We all feel that Mrs. Gray, after many weeks of intense, unfailing work, has
added another very brilliant touch to her long list of successful productions.
