Several hundred high schools in the
state will soon receive copies of thet
revised list of representative plays
from the best in both classic and con-1
tnporary drama, suitable for high
school production, which are now
printed and ready for circulation a,*
part of the regular program of the
University Extension service. There
has been a steady demand by high
schools for the list. .
The bulletin of plays is prepared by
the Library Extension service under
the auspices of the University Exten-
Iion division. The list is designed to
help high school play producers to
select suitable dramas for presenta-
tion. Each year, a great many high
school teachers in Michigan secure
this list and take a play from it for
a senior play or some such occasion.
While the plays are especially for high;
school students, they are also used by
clubs and other organizations
throughout the state.
The first list was printed by the
Extension division several years ago.'
High schools about the state gave
hearty approval to the plan and conse-
quently the list is revised and re-
printed each year. Between four and
five hundred schools now receive the
list. Its esliecial values lies in the fact
that the plays are chosen with ref-
erence to thought content, literary
merit, and dramatic value from the
view point of high school casts produc-
ing them. The list includes historical
and costume plays, character plays
and plays where the main interest
,enters in the 'lot, with a view of of-
'ering a variety of titles sufficient
to meet the needs of the conditions
in any school.
The Library Extension service has
two copies of every play listed. Any
person interested in selecting a drama
for school or club. production may
borrow for inspection any of the titles
in the list.
