Senior Pla 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. 33

Music teacher Gina Guttmauu chatting with Principal Albert Stern Junior Play "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 company managers. 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. 32 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 Mary Mosser. 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.

Thespians 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 34 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.
