The Abbot C i r c I 19 2 8 " Square $egsf The evening of the Senior-Mid Plays was opened by a delightful piece by Lois Hardy and Polly Francis. Lois typified a charming modern girl with real twentieth century manners while Polly hypnotized us with her beautiful gown and the quaint customs of fifteen century Venice. The climax came when each discovered that her own times were the best. The play was artistically portrayed and very enjoyable. Cast A Modern Girl A 15th Century Venetian Lois Hardy Polly Francis Ufa 0lh Habp g fjoto fter Jfflebate Any play by Barrie would receive a favorable reception but this one was so well done that we considered it quite a masterpiece. Every girl played her part with the ease and finish of a professional. The three old ladies were essentially alike and yet different and they added a clever touch of humor. We loved the way Mrs. Dowey took her chance for happiness and were equally fond of the rough, crude soldier who became as a son to her. The actors are to be congratulated!

The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 fttoelftfj 32tgf)t " 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, ho " were lovely. 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 waiting ' all 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. 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. 87
