• The 1920's and Earlier

    In 1914-1915, the High School Dramatic Club was formed at Columbus High School by the then current juniors and seniors.  The sponsor was Miss Carrie Ong. 
    Participation in the club was high.  27 members of the class of 1916 counted themselves as members of this club, nearly 30% of the graduating class. 
    In the fall semester, there would be one acts produced for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  A "three-act" play would be produced in February and the senior class play would take place in April or May.  In addition, the students would regularly perform other plays for each other at their bi-weekly meetings and for community groups and other high schools on a fairly regular basis.
    We are aware that as early as the turn of the twentieth century, Columbus High School was performing class plays on the stage at the Crump Opera House.  Little other knowledge exists about these early times.
    If you have any knowledge of this era, or know of anyone who has, we would be happy to talk to you/them.  Please contact us.
