Judges decided that Cheri DeLuca was the "best supporting actress" in her role as the wealthy fiancee' of the bachelor, and freshman, Steve Mark won the plaudits as "best supporting actor." Steve played an eccentric and faithful butler.
Mr Mossholder, director of the play, expressed his joy over the success of the thespians' first production of the year. "The cast worked extremely hard, and they realized their efforts," he said after the final performance. We had a great stage crew....... the best we have ever had. "I'd like to mention two girls whose names were not on the program, and without whom the play could not have been successful....... Judy Kestenbaumn who handled the sound and Susan Morgan who handled props."

Thunderous Applause

The play was staged in a full and receptive house each of the three nights it was given. The audience was constantly aware of the difficulty entailed in mastering Irish and British accents, but the cast's trouble was greatly rewarded when the final curtains were brought down amid thunderous applause.
