FOR TWO SEASONS
Elon has submitted two original
plays to the Carolina Dramatic
Association Contest held yearly
in Chapel Hill. The contest is
among the senior colleges of
North Carolina. Each school is
allowed to have two entries which
are carefully read and checked
by impartial judges who are
members of the faculty at the
University of North Carolina or
are graduate students of Drama
tic Art. Of all the plays submit
ted, the judges pick the two best.
The colleges which entered these
winning plays are then invited to
present their productions in the
Playmaker’s Theater at Chapel
