Dulcy Staged By Thespians With Success All-Star Cast Performs Well Before Fair Sized Audience By Joshua Ball There were laughs aplenty Sunday night when the Thespian society presented Dulcy, three-act comedy, before a fair-sized and appreciative crowd in Holy Name auditorium at 8 p.m. The title role of the play was handled by Miss Helen D'Antoni, senior music student, whose performance proved flawless in a part which might have been created especially for her. Rudy O'Dwyer, junior arts, shared the lead with Miss D'Antoni in the role of Gordon Smith. The supporting cast was led by Edward Melton, sophomore arts, who gave an excellent performance as William Parker, Dulcy's brother. His facial expressions, his poise, and his pantomime were all indicative of the polished actor. Edward O'Dwyer, freshman arts, gave a surprisingly convincing performance in his first attempt at dramatic effort, although he did appear to be a triflle nervous at times. Hampden White, sophomore arts student, gave a very amusing performance, handling a very difficult role as the effeminate soenario writer. Ivor Trapolin, freshman arts, was given an excellent chance to do some pantomime work, and capitalized upon it, as the butler. Also included in the supporting cast were Beryll Rabouin, Iris Mae Frisch, Julius Meyer, Joseph Henderson, and George Medaille. The plot of the story revolves around the attempt of Dulcy to guide the business ventures of her husband. She is the type of woman who acts first and then thinks afterward. The natural result of such a person's actions affords many opportunities for amusing situations, which prevail throughout the play. The play was received enthusiastically by the large audience, thus establishing it as a complete success. It was under the direction of Dr. A. J. Bonomo, Thespian moderator. William Couret To Direct Drama Mr. William Couret, prominent New Orleans cotton broker, affilfiliated with Atkinson and Company, will direct Tovaritch, fouract Russian drama to be presented by Le Cercle Francais, the Rev. Louis G. Soniat, S.J., moderator of the organization, announced this week. Tryouts for roles in the play were held last night in Marquette auditorium.
