'TpHE PLAYERS' CLUB is the oldest club at the University and has
-*- always tried to be worthy of this distinction.  It has done much
to bring amateur dramatics in British Columbia to their present high
plane.
Just six weeks after the University came into existence, in the
autumn of 1915, at the old "shacks" in Fairview, a small group of
students aided by Professor F. G. C. Wood of the English Department, undertook to. form a dramatic society. Begun with much temerity on the part of the students, the University Players' Club, as
it was then named.., did not aim to prepare its members for the professional stage. It desired, rather, to encourage their appreciation
of drama, and to help them to learn some of the essentials of the
art of acting.
Despite this lack of professional ambition, the Club has made
an appreciable contribution, not only to community drama, as to
the case of the Little Theatre Movement and school drama throughout the Province, but also to the legitimate stage-. Many former
members have also attained prominence in the radio theatre and
in films.
The programmes of one-act "Christmas Plays", which are presented each fall have given pleasant entertainment to many friends
of the Club since their inauguration in November 1916. They have;
also afforded the new members a chance to show both their acting
and technical ability. The Annual Tour of the Spring Play, begun
in 1916 at the request of the late President Wesbrook, took this important student activity to many parts of the Province, thereby resulting in the establishment of a better understanding of University
aims and difficulties.
As early asc 1921, the late Mr. James Butterfield wrote in "The
Province"—"The U.B.C. Players' Club has succeeded in the face of
the greatest difficulties in bringing its annual performance to a pitch
of perfection that I have never seen equalled by amateurs in a very
wide experience of the drama" In maintaining this standard, great
credit belongs to the directors:—Mr. Wood, 1915 to 1931, with the
exception of 1929 when Mrs. A. Ferguson was in charge; Mr. Sydney
Risk, 1932 and 1933, as well as 1939 and 1940; Miss Dorothy Somerset, 1934 to 1938; and in recent years Mrs. Ernest Woodward, Mr. Sam Payne, Miss Lola Duncan and Mrs. Elsie Graham. This year
a former member of the Club, Miss Joy Coghill, has been invited
by the Club to direct its Spring Play. Miss Coghill also directed the
Christmas Play "Aria da Capo" which was U.B.C.'s presentation at
the annual Inter-Varsity Drama Festival held this year in Winnipeg.
In 1931, because of pressure of other duties, Mr. Wood wad
forced to give up the joint positions of Honorary President and Director of the Spring Play. His years of devotion to the Club had established it on a lasting basis and had built for it a splendid reputation throughout Canada Upon his retirement, a professional director took over the responsibility of producing the annual Spring.
Play and the late Dr. F. C. Walker was invited by the Club to become its new Honorary President. For the three years before Dr,
Walker's untimely death, the Club gained much from its association with him. Since then Professor Thorleif Larsen, Professor Walter
Gage and Miss Dorothy Somerset have filled that position and have
done much to win the gratitude of the members.
This year, as its Thirty-Third Spring Presentation, the Players'
Club is offering Sheridan's famous "School for Scandal", in this
production a prominent member of the cast achieves a Players'
Club record — Jim Argue, who plays the part of Joseph Surface,
is making his fifth appearance in a Spring Playl
