2ARTS HIGH SCHOOL NEWARK • NEW JERSEYINTRODUCTION Excitement permeates the atmosphere s clamoring throngs await the stars. We arrive . . . Triumphant successes. Suddenly, in the moment of exaltation W’e recall the humble beginning . . . In retrospect, we see A troupe of faltering starlets Devoid of poise Joined by the bonds of fear and insecurity Memorizing meaningless lines And aimless gestures Finally to realize that success lies Not in the script. But in living the role with those around us. The curtain rises, and we see A theme developed by our unique cast With everyone a star ... In the spotlight, background, or the wings. To play the role and play it well Is the challenge of the artist. But now . . . the show must go on!RUTH ABOS B.A., M.A., £nglith THERESA DAVID B.A., M.A.. Spannh PHILLIP CLAMURRO RUTH EDDY B.A., M A., Mathemotut B.A.. H.Hory DEDICATION To our four class advisors, we humbly and gratefully dedicate this book. Throughout our years in Arts High's studio, they have directed all our activities with the efficiency for which all good directors are noted. They taught us the meaning of determination and guided us until we reached our goal. Because of their wisdom and understanding, even the hardest lines seemed easy to us. Now, at the completion of our production, we thank them for their devotion and service. We shall always have fond memories of Miss Abos, Miss David, Miss Eddy, and Mr. Clannurro. 8DR. FREDERICK C. SEAMSTER, B.A., M.A., PH D. Principal Our indispensible producer. Dr. Seamster, is recognized as the person whose assistance made our premiere successful. As a good producer he made the people around him work efficiently and effectively. In coordinating the production, his understanding was equalled only by his unselfishness and devotion of time to making our road to stardom as easy as possible. It is he who has made our studio one of which we can l c truly proud. MISS M. BERNICE HAMILTON, B.A., M.A. Vice-Principal M iss Hamilton, our all important associate producer, has been a conscientious executive and a sincere friend. She has taught us the importance of our roles; she has helped us to memorize our lines and, in our moments of stagefright, she has inspired us with her patience and wisdom. Many times, as she reviewed our scripts, she suggested revisions which were most beneficial. Now, as we are about to make our premiere, we wish to express our appreciation to Miss Hamilton for her great service to us. 910 DIRECTORS As each new show is premiered, the task of the directors is finished . . . but their influence will remain until the last performance. They have taught us to interpret our roles through word and action. They have emphasized the importance of make-up. cues, timing. The musical score and the very line and color of the set . . . To these who made our premiere possible, we give our lasting wishes for greater triumphs, — and gratitude for our success. MARGARET I. CROSS 8.S., Phyt. Id. ADAMS GARRETT B.A..

HOPPER MISS RUTH ABOS. MR. MILTON KAPl S'TATTF.R66 NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The highest position of esteem which one can attain is membership in the National Honor Society. Those personalities who excel in Scholarship, Leadership, Character and Service are chosen to represent our studio in this nationwide organization. Our Chapter, the M. Bernice Hamilton Chapter of the National Honor Society, is presided over by William Gillard. president; Juanita Pitts, vice-president, Glenn Ruber, secretary, and James O'Bosky, treasurer. A-PIN The A-pin, or Arts High’s Ambition Award is presented to those personalities who have completed outstanding work in extra curricular activities and arc in the up|)er third of their class scholastically. A-pin candidates are selected by those already holding the award and these nominees arc then ratified by a majority vote of the Student Council. These stars are quite aware of the fact that they have attained the highest honor that their studio can give them and they are always ready to maintain the dignity of their positions.67 ART SERVICE CLUB With the proper publicity, such as the Art Service Club gives our studio, premieres will go far. Posters, bulletin displays, and artwork in the Scope are only a small portion of the advertising we receive. During the September term the department rose to new heights under the able leadership of president Jerome Weiner, vice-president Cathy Blank, secret ary-treasurer Ellen Briden. Proof of this was shown in a successful unsupervised dance which the Art Service Club sponsored. It is thought that during the February term, under the leadership of Cathy Blank, James O’Bosky, and Louise Bailey, the group will continue to make great strides. Much of the success of the department can be attributed to the club adviser, Mrs. R. H. Hopper. CHORUS To provide the studio with music and give our talented cast occasion to display their special abilities, the Arts High Studio Chorus was instituted under the expert direction of Mrs. Marietta Marchese and Mr. William Pickett. They have given our studio and audiences many hours of pleasure. especially at such elaborate productions as the Winter Concert and the Christmas Fair, our 1951 Biblical epic. Their academy award winner was the production of the second act of "La Boheme" starring Yvette Coppock, Marilyn Flakes, Melvin Met ker, Lawrence Roberts, Andrew Wide-man, Donald Rochette, Donald Ross and a select group of choristers.68 CRAFT CLUB A leisure lime activity that attracted many stars, young hopefuls, and extras was Mr. Landsman's Craft Club. After long, trying hours on hot sets, the performers were delighted to find such enjoyment from creating craft items of wire, sheet metal and leather, ilere, in the pleasant companionship of friends, relaxation was a must. The president of this club is John Dolan and the vice-president is David McDonald. Gail Knobloch is the secretary. DRAMATIC CLUB Young hopefuls, as well as stars, find their way once a week to Mrs. Co zens to improve their speech difficulties and their stage presence. During these instructional periods, the stars also find relaxation listening to records and performing monologues for their own enjoyment. Often, members of this group present small productions for the pleasure of the Arts High Studios.G9 FUTURE TEACHERS OF AMERICA On the Future Teachers of America set, Mr. Misurell is trying to arouse the interest of those who will be the directors of tomorrow. The club functions for the purpose of cultivating those character traits which are essential to a good director. 'These are unlimited op| ortunitics in the held of leaching and as the stars participate in club activities, they decide whether they wish to further their interest in this direction. On a set such as this, the acting cxjxrricnce acquired may prove useful in later roles. Hazel Reid is president and Diane Dallencgra, vice-president. The secretary is Dorothy Kafaf and the treasurer, Virginia Holmes. DANCE BAND For large musical productions the Green Jackets are always in demand. The talent they display has been well recognized on our lot. Under the direction of Mr. I)’ Ainico, Mike Ester, Marvin Goldman, Ira Halperin, Tommy Jones, John Margotta, Pat Landolphi, Arthur Schrock, I.ouis Tobic, and Larry Yannu zi have made our May Dance, Harvest Dance and Alumni Game events to l c remembered as gay and successful.70 JUNIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL The work of the Junior Red Cross Council is to help entertain others not as fortunate as themselves. At Halloween, Christmas, taster and other times, they have played the roles of sympathetic well wishers as they | erformed their duties of making articles for the blind, collecting cards for children and making favors in nurseries and hospitals. Arts High’s council has often been in the spotlight in Newark events, as they | erformed with other members of this city-wide organization. Many members of our cast have attended national conventions. With the aid of their technical adviser, Miss Kruck, our performers have played their roles very successfully. The officers arc: President, Margo Hess; Vice-president, Louise Augsdofer; Secretary, Cathy Blank; Treasurer, Delores Piccirilli. LIBRARY GUILD In our well-equipped studio Library, Miss Lehlbach is the dramatic coach of a small cast which enact the roles of junior librarians. Directors, producers, and technical advisors could always rely upon the guild niemlxMs to assist them in their scar h for background material, fashion design or teihuical information. Through the efforts of thoughtful guild members, many stars found books which were relaxing after a hard grind on the lot. Cathy Blank, a the star of this set, had Katina Pilvakis and Melvin Met ker in supporting roles.71 OPERA ORCHESTRA Opera Night is the biggest production of Arts Movie Studio. Here the outstanding singers combine their talents with the famed instrumentalists and produce a famous act of a memorable opera. This year, under the direction of Mr. D’Amico, the second act of La Bohemc is being given. In the past, the group has presented Cavaleria Kusticanna, Rigolctto, Hansel and Cretel, and now, La Boheme. Those who participated in the Opera orchestra are: Sheila Kiscnl erg, Robert Judd, Arlene Moldofsky, John Margotta, Patsy Landolfi, Tom Jones.

Their latest activities have included rc-searth in 3-1). Cineniasco| c and color photography. All the social events which take place at our studio are recorded in picture form by this fine group. In the position of chief cameraman is Samuel Karj el.72 POTTERY CLUB On Miss Howe's set in the basement lot, many stars find relaxation while discovering their own creative talents. Here the rising starlets forget their troubles of the busy day. Young actors garbed in the costumes of their latest roles retire to this set for the enjoyment which they derive from making ceramic and plastic pieces. After firing ami gla ing their work, our players get even more enjoyment from showing their handicraft to their friends on other lots. Jerry Weiner is the president of this club and Vincent Liaguno. vice-president. Jesse El and Marietta Mayes alternate as treasurer and secretary. SCHOOL SERVICE CLUB In all large buildings, order must be maintained if business is to be run efficiently. In our studio the School Service Club, under Mr. Misurcll’s supervision, has done this job most effectively. Even stars are often in need of reprimands and these studio ushers take care of each situation with much authority. This group had been extremely helpful at public affairs where our studio dignity must be upheld, and they do so with much success.73 SCIENCE CLUB On the science lot, Mr. Misurell counsels a group of aspiring stars who arc also interested in the mysteries of nature. While learning these facts, the cast have a pleasant time experimenting and proving their theories. Many players arc as well acquainted with what goes on lichind the scenes as they are with their own important work in front of the cameras. Grace Stcinman has been an able director and her assistants Madge Fricwald, Rend Feucrhcrm, Ronald Hutchins, have helped her to make their set a thriving one. SCOPE The Scope, our regular studio publication, prints only the truth about our stars and publicizes the events that take place on the sets. Up to date pictures and interviews of important personalities appear in each issue, as well as the latest in costuming and s| ort$. Through the pages of our newspaper, many rising young starlets and actors have become acquainted with out lot. With Mrs. Nucss as their technical adviser, script editor Richard Tortoricllo and his staff of re-write men, Rosalind Sodano. Meredith Luhrs, Henry Kaneps, Robert Cisco and Joseph Petoia have done a commendable job with the paper. Sally Strych-newicz and Katina Pilavakis tyfied copy, Ronald Devito, Robert I ivvom, Joe Mcl-illo and Jim O’Bosky did the illustrations, and Marc Klein, Ellen Briden, and Diane Dallanegra of the make up staff added their touches. By deadline, we always had a fit publication for a successful, thriving studio.74 SEWING CLUB The wardrobe department under the supervision of Mrs. Hiller has been a great success. Their main purpose is to help others and not gain profit for themselves. Right now they are engaged in making children's overalls for the Junior Red Cross. Next on the agenda will be miniature opera dolls for the Hoard of Education. Speaking of opera, the wardrobe department plans to assist Miss Johnson and her class in any way they can by helping with the fitting and sewing of costumes. The twenty-five members meet each Friday on set 320. The president is Betty Hutson; vice president, Elsie Alston; secretary, Ruby Rogers; treasurer, Rogers Bryant. SPANISH CLUB Under the direction of Senorita David, a cast of rising young stars and starlets find themselves singing old Spanish folk songs and dancing to the strains of exciting Latin music, with the adeptness that one would find in any Spanish-speaking country. The domestic art of the Spanish people has also excited considerable interest among our young performers and, in order to understand this art better, the troupe has made its way to New York City to enjoy the spell that the Spanish Theater casts, as well as to sample tantalizing foods prepared in the South American style, Mary Folarno is president and Ruby Rogers, vice-president. The secretary is Katina Pil-avakis and the treasurer, Robert Holder.75 STAGE CREW The stage crew members with the aid of Mr. Misurell and Miss Hamilton, are in charge of the technical work behind the cameras. Before any production is put into rehearsal, the stage crew is consulted about the scenery, lighting and use of the microphones.

STUDENT COUNCIL Our board of directors is the Student Council. Each set sends two representatives who arrange social affairs for the enjoyment of the cast. The Barn Dance, Variety-Show and the Snow Ball Dance were extremely successful events. More serious accomplishments were the renewal of the sponsorship of our young protege, Joseph Kopec, and the revision of the actors guide —the Arts High Handbook. Our board of directors meetings help our stars to obtain experience in democratic citizenship and to promote co-operation between the actors and the directors. The chief executives of the council are: Lawrence Yannuzzi, president: James O'Bosky, vice-president; Hazel Reid, secretary, and Marc Kline, treasurer. 76 ORCHESTRA A vide selection of music lias been | er-forincd by this studio.
