TRAINING SCHOOL OPERETTA
AMONG the outstanding entertainments produced during the college year
was an operetta, "It Happened in Holland," presented by the junior high
school students under the direction of Miss Vera Moss, junior high school critic,
and Professor B. J. Rozehnal, director of instrumental music. The woodwind
and string sections of the college orchestra provided instrumental accompani-
Tabea Foss, a pupil in the seventh grade, sang the leading role. She took
the part of Julianna, the Burgomaster's daughter, called by her subjects "the
Dutch Doll." Lloyd Sherman sang the part of the rich, old, gout-tormented
Burgomaster, who has a great attachment for Gertrude the Cat, Irene Larkins.
Although Julianna is envied by the Dutch girls for her station and riches,
she is envious of their freedom. This longing for release and the skillful per-
suasion of Arlene, a gypsy girl, played by Betty Dodge, led her to change clothes
and homes with Arlene "just for a day" on the evening before the festival.
Thus disguised as a gypsy, Julianna discovers a plot to destroy her father. Over-
coming a series of difficulties, she saves her father from the gypsies and the town
from a leak in the dyke.
Among the other children who had singing parts were Evelyn Smith and
Dorothy Edkins as Hulda and Katrina. young Dutch girls, and Marshall Olson
and Harold Edkins as Peter and Jan, Dutch boys, Mijnheer Katz, an eccentric
old Dutchman, was impersonated by Gailen Christensen. Other characters were
Gypsy Josh, Glen Anderson, Gypsy Jane, Muriel Griffith, and Hans, who
saves the Burgomaster with his snuff, Williani Richardson. Still others as gyp-
sies and guards were Robert Dopkins, Robert Knapp, Lowell Wilcox, Carl
Carlson, Howard Chinnock, and Richard Peterson. The remaining junior high
school pupils were used in specialty numbers and in choruses of gypsies and
Quaint Dutch costumes and the gypsies' colorful ones against a background
of Dutch windmills furnished a picturesque setting.
