G. H. S. DRAMATIC CLUB
(Continued from page one)
several members of the cast this was the
first attempt at any public dramatic per
formance,” remarked the director. The
scenery, the settings, and the costumes
were excellent and showed careful plan
Usually in a review of this kind a small
paragraph is found near the end telling
that “the stage managers succeeded ad
mirably and deserve commendation”; but
in this case the stage head and his crew
deserve first mention. Special note
should be made of the work of Bill
Roach, who worked incessantly days on
end; without him the play could never
have achieved its success. He deserves
equal mention with the principals of the
cast. Assisting him were Lanier Griffin,
Stanley Sturm, Finley Atkinson, Claire
Connor, James Cates, Phil Shelton, and
Charlotte Van Noppen.
In discussing the work of the individual
characters it would be unnatural not to
mention Dick Ziglar first, not merely be
cause he had the title role, but because
he was the outstanding figure of the play.
He was “Seventeen,” lovable and laugh
able, and in character every second of the
time, constantly working and co-operat
ing with the other members of the cast,
and showing result of his hard and faith
ful work at numerous rehearsals. His
interpretation was without flaw.
Perhaps the character most enjoyed by
the audience was Jane Baxter, the typi
cal “kid sister,” impersonated by “Liz”
Darling. Her role which she lived
through every second on the stage, was
extremely clever and original. Every
action of her daity feet or her jam-be
smeared hands, portrayed the little girl.
It was as enjoyable as interesting, and
above all as natural a comedy portrayal
as one could well wish to see. The cute
and cunning “Liz” of everyday life out
did herself in Jane Baxter.
Judah Shohan, in the role of Mr. Bax
ter, played with great praise the difficult
part of the unsympathetic father. At
no time during the whole performance
did he fall short of the interpretation.
Cecile Landau portrayed the mother.
Her self-mastery and ease of speech and
movement delighted those who had seen
her less able attempts in rehearsal.
Natural charms and graces were used
to great advantage by La Verne Ware
in her role as the “baby-talk lady,” the
vivacious summer visitor who turned
Willie’s world topsy-turvy.
Lola’s hostess, May Parcher, was a
none too easy character to interpret, for
she could shine only by the reflected light
of the glorious Lola. The role was cap
ably handled, however, by Elizabeth Um-
The work of Arthur Pearce as Genesis,
the inevitable negro butler, gardener, and
general man of all work was above the
usual work of the amateur “black-face.”
The broad comedy, negro, the minstrel
end-man, so usually the example taken
by amateurs in their portrayel was avoid
ed in “Seventeen.” The audience was
treated to a view of a natural, lazy, no
account colored man-servant.
Mr. Parcher, May’s father, who under
stands even less than Mr. Baxter the
“word” young people, was acted by Ed
ward McNeely. Joe and Johnnie, “Silly
Bill’s” pals, depicted with the delicate
finesse that Booth Tarkington loves to
devote to his minor characters, were act
ed by George Newman and Guy Hill,
respectively. They were both successful
in their roles and “went over big” with
the audience, especially in the dance
scene and in Johnnie’s “serious” discus
sions of love and matrimony with Willie
Ed Young as the “city slicker” was
true to type, lauding it over the less so
phisticated and automobile-less Willie
Baxter and Willie’s friends and making
tragedy in Willie’s life by taking away
the “baby-talk lady” in his “Chevrolet
racer.” Ethel Boke, the fat girl with
the good-natured and well-meant brava
do, added her bit to Willie’s tragedy
with her attempts at sociability. Louise
Craven did a splendid interpretation of
this character. The other characters,
Wallie and Mary, impersonated respec
tively by “Bunny” Wimbish and Cynthia
Vaughan, added to the gayety of the
farewell party and the success of the
