    This collection of photographs was labeled "Senior Play, 1915".  In April 1915, the Howell High School Senior Play was "Esmeralda", and was presented on one night, April 16, 1915 at the Howell Opera House, Howell, Michigan.

    A column in the April 21st, 1915 edition of the Livingston Republican recalled, "The Senior Play At the Opera House Friday Evening Was a Decided Success".  Continuing the paper noted, "A one hundred eighty-five dollar house was the way the people of Howell and vicinity appreciated the Senior Play, 'Esmeralda' at the Opera House.  The parts were well taken and well sustained.  Much credit is due to not only those who took part but to Mrs. W. C. Huntington who trained the actors and staged the play".

    The 1915 "Torch", listed the Cast of Characters and their student actors as Stanley Warner, G. D. Monroe, Ralph Yerkes, Venice Stuible, Mary Bullis, Edwin Beebe, Irene Taziman, Maggie Cummiskey, Ethel Sharp, Harold Hardy, and Lee VanHorn.

    "Esmeralda" was a celebrated play of that day by Mrs. Francis Hodgson and William H. Gillette.  Admission to the play was 35 and 50 cents.
