Title

Article "And The Colors of the Sixties Will Reign"

Description

This 1927 Collegian article attempts to persuade students to go see the Richmond Senior play at the Strand Theatre. The play being performed is Shenandoah, and is described as a play that everyone will enjoy, "whether from the North or the South in that it brings vividly back the days of the Civil War, the gaities, and the color of the sixties." The article describes that the play will show "days of love, of sacred honor, of colonial pride and chivalry." There then is a discussion in the ways that the students should feel connected to the play because their fellow classmates have all worked so hard on the show, and they should be supported and celebrated. The article concludes by stating that this play is a chance for the college community to gather, and that Shenandoah and "the period it represents will fill an evening worthy of remembrance."
