After much debating, Lillian Hellman's "The Little
Foxes" was the play chosen by the seniors as their
dramatic presentation. The plot concerned two broth-
ers and their sister, all of whom try to get rich quickly
and consequently undercut one another as much as
possible. Regina, the sister, was admirably portrayed
by Gwenyth Kriss. Her brothers, Ben and Oscar, were
convincingly acted by Dave Replogle and Dick Shank-
weiler. Oscar's degenerate aristocratic wife, Birdie,
was played by Beverly Mitten, while Dave Lewin took
the part of Leo, her son. Phil Severin was cast as
Regina's sickly husband and turned in a fine perform-
ance. The part of Alexandra, Regina's daughter, was
expertly carried by Lorine Anderson. Ethel Gins-
burg superbly handled the character of Addie, Alex-
andra's loyal maid, and Ed Brauner portrayed Mr.
Marshall in professional style.
Mr. Robert Hanna, industrious director, was in
charge of the entire production, with Madeline Gir-
onda assisting as student director. The scenery was
superlatively constructed under the supervision of Miss
Rentchler and her committee co-chairmen, Iim Whalen
and Bob Ely. Peter Guttmann took care of the prop-
erties, while a group under Miss Bacheller skillfully
provided the necessary costuming. Of course, we are
indebted to Miss Wheaton and her make-up club for
applying the proper guises.
The first time in many years that a serious play
was attempted, all felt that the idea was desirable
because it afforded more opportunity for true histri-
onic ability than the usual comedy would have. Also
unique in connection with the production was the
fact that it was given in the spring, rather than its
former date in the fall. But the change proved en-
joyable and perhaps will be repeated in future years.
It was a distinct pleasure to observe such mature
acting from high school students. All in all, the pre-
sentation of "The Little Foxesl' was a marked feat
of which Mamaroneck can be justly proud.

"What a Lifef, Clifford Goldsmith's comedy of
typical high school life, was the three-act play chosen
by the Iunior Class and presented on November Ig.
The entire production was directed by Miss Wanda
B. Mitchell, with Ioanne Sanborn assisting as student
director. Caroline Soper and Steve Gibbons were
Henry Aldrich, the boy who was continuously in
hot water, was excellently played by talented Mickey
Severin, while Mr. Bradley, the austere Principal of
Central High School, was well portrayed by Albert
Stern. The part of Barbara Pearson was splendidly
handled by Iean Durling.
Working as school clerk was Mary lane Fritzinger
who was cast as the dignified, good-hearted Miss Shea.
Walter Moeller ably carried the role of Mr. Nelson,
assistant principal. Other fine performances were
given by Gordon Nichols as Mr. Vecchittog Ioan Van
Valkenburg as the prim study hall teacher, Michael
Zeiler as the detective, solved the mystery of the stolen
instruments, and Ann Merritt as Mrs. Aldrich.
lid Borschow was cast in the role of Central's star
athlete. Other students were played by Roy Moulton,
Sandra Wanderman, Ersaline Alexander, and many
more who lent much atmosphere with their walk-on
parts. Faculty members of Central- High were well
cast in the persons of Malcolm Hepworth, Iudy Simp-
son, Gina Guttmann, and Sharon Kelly.
Honors go to Miss Devereux and her stage crew
who worked hard to construct a very realistic set. The
business end was handled by co-chairmen lane Ann
Hughes and ludy McAvity, supervised by Mrs. Annisg
make-up, by Miss Wheaton and her make-up clubg
and costumes by Miss Bacheller and student chairman
The marvelous publicity, which featured the cast
wearing arm slings about the school, was in charge
of Lesley Harper, While the collection of properties
was supervised by Iudy Warren. Mr. Michael Tripico
and Dick Land, in charge of lights, aided greatly with
their faithful backstage help.

Students with the shine of footlights in their eyes
all look forward to becoming members of the Thes-
pians, national honorary society for high school drama-
tists. This year the organization has been a big
success under the presidency of Mima Lee Newkirk.
Dave Replogle served as vice-presidentg Virginia Mc-
Mullen, secretary, and Ethel Ginsburg, treasurer.
After several meetings of planning and discussion,
the society decided to present a one-act play during
an all-school assembly. The play chosen was 'LYes
Means No," a farce about a frugal businessman and
his comical Qto say the leastj son. The father, who
lets his son take over the business for a few hours
with the agreement that he will not say one "yes,"
was portrayed by Iim Shaffer. The son, who always
manages to answer "nov at the wrong time, was played
by Dave Lewin. Mima Lee Newkirk took the part
of the prim, old-maid secretary, Ginger McMullen
was the love interest, and a business associate was cast
in the person of Bob Kiely.
Mr. Iohn Corfield was the faculty adviser of the
Thespians and his help during rehearsals was invalu-
able, as any 'gveteran troupern will agree. At meet-
ings other than rehearsals and planning for plays,
many phases of dramatics were discussed. Dave Re-
plogle, who studied stage techniques at Northwestern
University last summer, told fellow members of some
helpful pointers he learned while there. Several meet-
ings were also spent talking over good dramatic possi-
bilities for high school presentation.
Requirements for membership in the society are
made up of several and varied activities. One major
part in a three-act play earns the needed credit, as
do several minor parts, or parts in one-act productions.
Participation in assembly programs, speech arts pre-
sentations, and talent shows also offer credit toward
membership. Backstage hands, sound effect and light-
ing mccn, property crews, and those who work on cos-
tumes and make-up may also become eligible to join.
Since at student must gain points by participating in a
number of these phases of school dramatics, Thespians
are usually juniors and seniors only.
