Description
Students perform as wagon players in the senior class pageant featuring Canterbury Inn and Elizabethan characters as part of May Day and the Tercentenary celebration of William Shakespeare's death. Maple Hall is located in the background.
Description from <em>The Monmouth Herald</em>: "The moving pageantry and pomp offered by the senior class was very effective and splendidly carried out. The Canterbury Inn, the church, the variegated costumes of the moving throng, the dances, the dramatic entrance of the pageant wagon drawn by spirited horses, the clever bits of humorous acting all served to show the lives of all the classes of people in Elizabethan times" (May 12, 1916).
