DEBUT PERFORI'^IANCE' OF LITTLE TIiEATRE
Highlands became another of the in
creasing number of summer theatre enter
prises when the Highlands Little Theatre
rendered its first production, "Dulcy" ,
in the School Theatre Tuesday evening.
Playing before a capacity house of over
300 people, the debut performance of the
little theatre was well received by an
enthusiastic audience. Much credit for
the successful production is due to the
untiring efforts of the directors,Tom
Fitz-Fatrick and Beverly Way.
"Dulcy" is a comedy in three acts,
written by George Kaufman and ^'’^rc Con
nelly. It tells the story of a frivolous
young wife who is always trying to help
her husband, but only succeeds in invol'

their appearance on the stage was;

The acting of the entire cast v;as
creditable for any professional group,
and lacked the anticipated and common
amateurish touches of local productions.
The presentation was excellent. The work
of each person was splendid.
The properties committee was composed
of Misses Eleanor Terhune, Elise Terhune,
and Ann Nash, ably assisted by Arthur Lit

Abingdon, Va, The busine-s-s affairs' were
