During the Interclass Competitives hosted by the Dramatic Club, Simmons girls were given an opportunity to showcase their acting abilities, dramatic talents, and creativity. Held every year in March, this event was a competition between the Freshmen, Sophomore, and Junior classes. Directed by a member of the Senior class, a group of girls from each class performed for the whole school in an effort to prove their talent.
Each cast of girls performed for the Senior class who voted on who should win the top prize. Productions were judged on three categories. First, they were judged on their acting which included the interpretation of the materials as well as how well the material was delivered. Second, they were judged on the creativity of the setting which included how skilled the sound effects, lighting, action were envisioned by the director. Lastly, the directing technique was judged on the merits of the timing, mood, and overall effect of the production.
The winning cast was given a silver cup full of roses. Each member of the cast received a rose from the cup as a prize. A landmark event happened in Catherine's Freshmen year when the Freshman class won the Interclass Competitives for the first time in the history of the tradition. Unfortunately Catherine did not take part in the Freshmen production because she was busy fulfilling her role as the costume chairman for the Sophomore class production.
