"THE FIRE PRINCE," ANNUAL OPERA
Playing before capacity houses in the local auditorium March 19 and 21, "The
Fire Prince," this year's operatic production, was declared the most gorgeous perform-
ance ever staged by the Music department of Pasadena High School.
Vocally and dramatically the work of the cast of twenty principals was excellent,
and was supported by a chorus of fifty voices selected from the combined glee clubs.
Expensive and elaborate costuming, set off by brilliant lighting effects, made the stage
from the first act until the grand climax, a wonderland of scintillating color. Adding
materially to the beauty of the affair were the five artistically rendered ballets of the
Flames, Butterflies, Roses, Fairies, and Spanish dancers, directed by Miss Elizabeth
Flint, Miss Maurice Heffelfinger, and Miss Florence Kratka.
The leading roles in the opera were sung by Madeline Richardson, Mary McPhie,
June Ettienne, Mary Louise McKinley, Esther Wollam, Atha Delaplain, Robert Snyder,
Clarence Ricklefs, Donald Novis, Robert Mangan, Carl Broome, Ronald Replogle, Floyd
Brehm, Biddell Staats, Thomas Arnold, Leslie Abbott, LeRoy Rimkson, Raymond Har-
vey, and Vincent Odell.
The entire performance was directed by Miss Lula C. Parmley, and is a tribute to
her ability. Assisting were Abraham Miller, head of the Music department, and H. H.
Parker, orchestra conductor.
Members of the chorus were: Marjorie Branson, Genevieve Butler, Helen Coon,
Doris Dammeyer, Dorothy Fraser, Katherine Grassie, Verna Heidner, May Hingley, Es-
elpha Hunter, Lorraine Ingraham, Mabel Kleckner, Grace Masterson, Rose Most, Ethel
Pautz, Viola Piesinger, Mary Snyder, Linda Schwartz, Zama Shriver, Marguerite Sor-
enson, Valeta Smith, Charlotte Taylor, Winifred Thayer, Dorothy Warren, Thomas
Arnold, Howard Canfield, Eugene Conterno, Alton Culver, Alfred de Temple, Sheldon
Frye, Donovan Greene, Raymond Harvey, Raymond Jones, Sylvester Kasten, Samuel
Kirk, Henry Lopez, Francis Moore, Harold Novis, Duane Perkins, Robert Perry, Hugh
Spalding, Robert Wood, Carl Metten, William Schmidt, and Harvey Wood.
Those participating in the ballets were Dorothy Chung, Lydia Staats, Priscilla Pratt,
Maxine Doershlag, Ella Sururier, Ruth Gonzales, Margaret Binckley, Marian Reynolds,
Ellen Atkinson, Irene Strutt, Hazel Kay, Yolando Spirito, Katherine Ennis, Marie Mac-
Keague, Velva Gibson, Margaret Morrow, Alvetta Van Tyle, Marian Patterson, Holly
Halstead, Virginia Platt, Maurine Scott, Ruth Cooley, Marian McMillan, Lorraine Tet-
terington, Grace Gordon, Myrtle Hayes, Erma Winans, and Hazel Green.

SENIOR GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
"For the, type of music rendered, for quality of tone, and balance of voices, for ac-
curacy of attack, and spontaneity of interpretation, for shading, and nuance, for musical
taste, and for feeling, I have heard nothing among high school girls' glee clubs to equal
the work done by the Senior Girls' Glee Club of Pasadena High School. Miss Parmley,
the director, is to be congratulated," is the opinion of Emory Foster, choir director and
