THE DRAMATIC CLUB
The Dramatic Club is one of the new organizations of the school, being organized at the beginning of the school year.
While both of the literary societies are doing excellent work, the need has been felt for an organization that would carry the work one step farther into the study and interpretation of true dramatic art. and it was to fulfill this need that the Dramatic Club was organized. The club is under the direction of and advised by Mrs. Xcttleton. head of the department of expression, and to her the club owes its success throughout the year.
The club is limited to a membership of 115. in order that all members may be benefited by it. It has had a full membership, all active members, and has been obliged to turn down many applications for membership at every meeting.
The club meets monthly for program and business meeting, attendance being limited, except on special occasions, to members only.
During the first semester the work was confined to the study and presentation of Shakespearian plays. Scenes were presented from “As You Like It.” “Macbeth,” “Hamlet.” “Othello.” At these programs there was no music, no comic speeches or “funny" numbers, in short nothing to play to the audience, but the interest never lagged, and the attendance was always good.
The greatest feature of the year for the Dramatic Club was the play, “An American Citizen,” given in the chapel the last of May.
Among the special programs of the club, a recital given by Miss Howell of the State University ranks first. Miss Howell read "The Lion and the Mouse” to a very appreciative audience of three hundred.
Another recital greatly enjoyed by everybody was that given by Miss Cline, assistant in the department of expression. Miss Cline gave a miscellaneous program, her lyric readings being especially well rendered.
The work of the year reached its climax by a St. Patrick’s Day play, "'Pile Land of a Heart’s Desire." which was received by an immense audience as an indeed classic production.
One huiuirtd fi'ty-one Scene from ‘The Land of a Heart’s Desire."—Win. Butler Yeats
