DRAMATIC CLUB TO PLAY "THE STAR"

Performances Given Also Tomorrow and Thursday Evenings--Play Directed by Hoffman

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Dramatic Club will present "The Star," a miracle play translated by D. F. Robinson '25, tonight, tomorrow and Thursday nights in the Germanic Museum. Tonight and tomorrow two performances will be given, one at 7.15 o'clock and the other at 8.30 o'clock, while on Thursday the play will be given once, 7.15 o'clock. All those who attended a performance of "Cake," the Dramatic Club's first production of the year, will be admitted free. Others may secure tickets at the door.

"The Star" is an eleventh century German play, being one of the miracle plays from the Belsen Cycle. The main action deals with the trip of the three wise men guided by the star. In this play, unlike other miracle plays, the Virgin has no lines and appears only in tableau in the final scene.

Gregorian chants are used to furnish an appropriate musical background and the visual setting for the performance is the Germanic Museum reproduction on the "Golden Gate" of the Cathedral of Freiburg, Germany.

P. S. Hoffman '32 is directing the play and the Production Committee consists of W. L. West '32, Business Manager, B. H. Goldsmith '33, Property Manager, and C. A. Lane '31, Lighting.

All the female parts are taken by Radcliffe students. The cast includes: Rosemary McHugh and Isabelle Reynolds as nuns; Asa Phillips '34, W. L. West '32, and M. P. Smith '32 as shepherds; L. A. S. McCabe '34, H. B. Powers '33, and D. A. Dudley '32 as the three kings; H. B. Wesselman '32 as Herod; R. C. Breithut '31 as armor bearer; B. H. Goldsmith and O. V. Wooten !31 as scribes, Edmund Dorfinan, '33 and R. W. Becher '33 as courtiers; P. G. Hoffman '32 as Joseph, Beatrice Grover as Mary; Alice Martin, Barbara Brentnall, and Barbara Shevlin as pages and P. G. Hoffman '32, as the voice of Gabriel.
