Title

Announcement "WC Seniors Portray 'Gone With the Wind' Characters"

Description

This 1939 announcement is for a Westhampton College production of "Gone With the Wind" that will be performed by WC seniors. The announcement details the women that will be playing each role, as well as the extravagance of the stage with a "black face chorus and plantation ball." The notice itself has a satirical element as it is written in an exaggerated Southern accent to emphasize the period of the play.
