Capacity A
Annual Play,
Dinner Lauds
Senior Coeds
Before a receptive capacity aud-
ience of senior women "Vanity
Flair," the 1953 production of Jun-
ior Girls' Play, made its debut last
night in Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
Before attending the Senior
Night performance of the 48th an-
nual JGP, senior coeds marched
from the General Library to the
League Ballroom where they had
the traditional senior dinner and
A skit centered around campus
activities familiar to all the wo-
men throughout their last four
years at the Universityrecalled
happy memories for the seniors
attending the dinner.
The jingle of coins resounded as
the unattached women filed out of
the ballroom dropping pennies, one
for every year of their life, into a
wishing well while pinned women
carried pins, engaged coeds car-
ried candles and married women
sucked lemons in keeping with the
Senior Night tradition.
From the ballroom, the seniors
attended JGP in a body and fre-
quently used their perogative in
demanding repetition of lines or
parts in the play and cries of
"roll em up" as the junior players
stepped on to the stage.
The theme of the junior ex-
travaganza which has been kept
secret from the rest of the cam-
pus for over ,six months was re-
vealed before the feminine aud-
"Vanity Flair" is the story of
two sisters, Joan and Chris, from
a midwestern town who go off on
a vacation-one going East to join
a summer stock theater while the
other ventures West to work on a
dude ranch.
Joan, played by Betty Magyar,
meets the director of the summer
theater, Mary Rea, in her eastern
escapades and winds up a star in
the "show within a show."
The dancing by Joan Ellis and
the dancing choruses were receiv-
ed with shouts of "repeat" from
the audience as they presented
the "Candy Kisses" routine and a
South American number in color-
ful costumes.
Changing to the western scene
found Chris, Sue Spurrier, involv-
ed in a series of "wild west' ad-
ventures with a cowboy, played by
Aggie Dunn.
In an atmosphere of a dude
ranch with tpe typical conglom-
eration of various types of char-
acters that included cowboys, In-
dians and the not so common
singing dogs, Chris whirled into
action seranaded by a unique uke
One of the numbers that brought
cheers and whistles from the sen-
ior audience last night was "Use
Your Vanity Flair Boys" as the
120 members of the cast filled the
Mendelssohn stage for the finale
glamorus scene.
