The French Club, restricted in membership to students in junior and senior French classes, presented La Fée, by Octave Feuillet. The play’s hero, Le Comte Henri de Comminges, was played by Rowena Beattie Uptegrove ’03, and Clare Allen ’03 was Mlle. Aurore de Kerdic , his spurned fiancée —“the fairy” who lures him to a fountain in Brittany.
All students studying French and guests of club members were invited to the production. “The music for the ballade, which had an important part in the play was composed by Miss E[mma] A[melia] Williams ’02. It was played with very pretty effect by mandolins behind the scenes.” The New York Times
