"The Birthday of the Infanta" and "El Crlsto," two plays sponsored by the Music Mothers' club, were presented at the high school auditorium Wednesday evening before an audience of approximately 400 persons. "The Infanta" is Stewart Walker's version of the Oscar Wilde story -while- "El Cristo" was written by Margaret Larkin. Noticeable throughout the evening's performance was the smoothness and ability with which the acting and stage technique were handled. Miss Ruth Irons directed both plays. Harriett Currle Has Lead. Harriett Currle, in the role of the "Infanta," gave a realistic portrayal of the little 12 year old princess about whom the entire play was centered. LeRoy Anderson, as the Fantastic, was the birthday gift presented to the Infanta. LcRoy was a living embodiment of the "funny little fantastic" who died while trying to please the Infanta with his dancing. Mary Jane Pauley, as the Duchess of Albuquerque and Charles Chenoweth in the role of Lord Chamberlain, were the guardians of the Infanta. Both vividly enacted their elderly roles. Friends Aid the Infanta. The Count of Tierra Nueva and Don Pedro of Arragon, portrayed by Frank Conway and Truman Cadwell, respectively, were two true friends of the Infanta and sincerely attempted to aid the 12 year old queen. Ralph Andcrberg and Otto Toppenburg, as the two pages, ably completed a well selected cast. "El Cristo," a religious drama, was the second play presented, and the roles, calling for expressive and moving tenderness, were more than satisfactorily characterized by the players. Gregory Is Outstanding. Tom Gregory, as the weakling Jose Valdez, gave what was, perhaps the outstanding performance of the entire evening, in an intensely emotional role. As the frightened candidate chosen by his people to represent El Cristo, Gregory aroused the sympathy of the entire audience as he waited in fear the crucifixion which awaited him. Bob, Bigg, Jose's uncle, Manuel, fulfilled the role of the gruff Valdez attempting to persuade his nephew to bear the crucifixion which was an established custom years ago in Mexico, Harold Grier anc Katherynne Trissel, as the parents of the cowardly Valded, sided with Manuel in attempting to persuade the "chicken-heart" to be El Cris to. Kotnantlc Element Supplied, Kathleen McCormick, Jose's sweet heart, Rosalio, and Louis Kaufman Jose's cousin, Ricardo, furnisher the romantic element. Mr. Katif man, as the blustering, powerfu rival of Jose, was given the El Cris to role when the cowardly Jose re fused to accept it and bear the cru cifixion. Miss McCormick, disdain fully casting aside Jose, embrace! Ricardo as he, after taunting Jose becomes the "El Cristo" of his peo pie. Vocal students of Miss Ellen Smith and the theater orchestra, un der the direction of Miss Marjorie Smith, entertained before the performance and in the intermission between the two plays.
