For The Parade of Comedy, four one-act plays given in assembly last October, drama director


wrote a prologue stating that


Turbyfill


great things are promised" for the year in theatre work. And great things were


accomplished in drama during the college year, too. Sixteen men and fifteen women worked during the full
season, with Murder in the Junior College being presented in the band shack (the old Little Theatre building)
in January. For its third annual participation in International Theatre Month in March, the college presented


The Whole Town's


Talking


as the "big number


" of the local observance, with performances in Gamboa, Cris-


tobal, and Diablo. Spreading the performances over such a wide area


as to blanket the entire Canal Zone,


actually enabled the college to live up to its name, at least in the field of drama.


While the one week for


rehearsals did not give the college sufficient time to enter the competition, The Drums of Oude was


success-


fully presented in assembly and as a part of the First Isthmian Drama


Tournament, sponsored by the


Thes-


pian Troupe of Cristobal High School and entered by all five amateur drama groups of the Isthmus. The col-


lege versions of the famous


"Oscar


awards for achievement in theatre work are presented at the annual Drama


Banquet, held this year on Wednesday, April 30, at the


Army-Navy Club at Fort Amador.


The awards this


year are different from any previous awards. Several of the persons who took part in the tenth season will
be returning to CZJC next fall and equally great things are expected from them in the drama work for 1953-54.
