Historian’s Corner

These two one acts represent the first and second place winners in Community Players’ first playwriting contest. The production was open to season ticket holders only, but the public was encouraged to become members. Only the first and second place plays were selected to be presented. Due to scenery requirements, it was felt that the third place play,”O’Shea”, by A.O. Brown and the fourth place play, “The Dragon’s Tooth” by Curtis Bill would be presented at a later date, but in fact they were never produced. At the February 11, 1927 meeting of the board of Community Players, article 4 -Section 2a of the Player’s by-laws were changed to read that the annual meeting would be held in May instead of October. As a result, 1926-1927 season was shortened from four plays to three.
