Dramatic Club Enrolls Help of Four Female Institutions in Spring Show

"The Dog Beneath the Skin" Will be Given at Copley Theatre on May 7 and 8

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

With the ardent cooperation of The Vincent Club, The Junior League, Erskine School and Radcliffe College, the Spring Dramatic Club Show, "The Dog Beneath the Skin", now in the throes of rehearsal, promises more interesting moments than that organization has presented to its theatre-going public in many moons. Featuring speed, sex, and savoir-faire, and with the dancing chorus of Nineveh Girls, consisting of choice Vincent-Clubbers, as a definite highlight, the production is scheduled for exhibition on Friday and Saturday evenings, May 7 and 8, at the Copley Theatre in Boston.

Two orchestras, a cast of 102, and 15 changes of scenery are mild indications of the magnitude of the extravaganza now in preparation, while such parts as "The Dog's Skin", "the right foot" and the various "lovers", "lunatics" and "mad ladies" bid fair to intimate that the play will be grotesque as well as giantesque. Outstanding among the cast will be Alice Plimpton, Dorothy Wright, Martha Bird and Joan Jacoby of Vincent Club and Junior League affiliations; Peggy Eastell, Priscilla Freeman, and Barbara Logan from Erskine; Desiree Rogers, newly debbed, Jean Halliday from Beaver Country Day, Peggy Carter and Leslie Blake.

Alice Plimpton will play the feminine lead, as Iris Crew, the heroine, while L. J. Profit, veteran of dramatic productions on stages from Australia to Bermuda, will be the Vicar, the principal masculine role. Oliver T. Simpkins '40, and Peggy Eastell are the King and Queen, and Robert Solo '39 will play the General. Alfonse Ossorio '38, designer of the Hasty Pudding Show, John Barnard '39, Richard H. Seymer '39 as "The Dog", Stephen Greene '37, last president of the Club, David F. Parry '38, and J. David Lightbody '40, president of the Freshman Class, are other outstanding members of the east.
