Summary expansion
As noted in the note by Mission Play Foundation president Harvey F. Hincks on verso of title page, the economic disaster of 1932 had forced the play to cease production for a time. Due to the ongoing sentimental popularity of the play, however, the Mission Playhouse had recently been purchased by the city of San Gabriel, and the play was once again in production. In addition to the list of acts and scenes and cast on two pages in the centerfold, the program includes background on the playwright, historical notes on the Camino Real and the construction of the missions, a synopsis of each of the three acts, description of the Mission Playhouse, and Old San Gabriel, and short biography of the star of the play, Pedro de Cordoba who plays Fray Junipero Serra
