Parts Played By Faculty Make Good Impression 800 HEAR COMIC OPERA Work Of University Orchestra Helps Presentation Between 800 and 5MK) people saw' the ‘■'Mikado” in the week's run which con cluded Saturday night in Guild theatre, marking it as one of the most success ful undertakings ever given there. The play was a new departure on the cam pus in the line of entertainment, being the first production to be given jointly by the school of music and the depart ment of public speaking. Contributing particularly to the suc cess of the opera was the work of Madame Rose McGrew, in the part of Katislia, and Fergus Rcddie as Ko-Ko. Both are professional players, Madame McGrew having been a member of the Hamburg opera company in Germany some years before the war, and Fergus Reddie being un actor for a consider able time in the spoken drama. Madame McGrew scored with her singing while Professor Reddie was always at the bot tom of the fun-making. Staging Attractive. Particularly attractive was tbe stag ing and the lighting effects. With four circuits in each of the four border lights and Ihe arch and footlights, the electrician was able to handle the pro duction, and many special wires were strung for lanterns and various clusters. George Pasto, stage electrician, was re sponsible for the good lighting effects, and won commendation from every source of his work. > The production was accomplished un der the direction of Fergus Reddie on the stage, Madame McGrew in the solo and chorus work, and Rex Underwood, who handled the orchestra. Charlotte Banfield assisted Professor Reddie on the stage. Other members of the staff were: Stage manager, Norvell Thomp son; electrician, George Pasto; and make-up, Claire Keene}’. Designs for the costumes were made by Mrs. Ernest Bates. Manford Michael, in the title role of the “Mikado,” characterized his work with his singing. He has a clear, strong voice which was perfectly audi ble all over the house. Wards of Ko-Ko Star. The three little wards of Ko-Ko were played by Charlotte Banfield, Maurine Welch and Eloise McPherson. Maurine Welch took the ingenue role of Yum Yum, in which part she was cast but a week before the first performance. She had a winning way of delivering her Hues and scored with her solos. Char lotte Banfield won favor witli her sing ing and dancing. Norvell Thompson played the part of Pooh-bah, a person with protoplasmic ancestors, who hold all the city offices. He took his strictly comedy part well, und was particularly good at his stage business. Nanki-P’oo, unknown son of the Mi kado, was played by Delbert Faust, a high school boy. His voice was par ticularly good for one of bis age, as was his stage presence. George Stearns played in the minor role of Pish-Tush, characterizing his work with his usual ability which has won him favor before so many Guild theatre audiences. Due to. the success with which the “Mikado” was received, those behind the opera look forward to another produc tion of similar nature in the future, al though the calendar for Guild theatre will not allow for another such number this spring. Although the box office receipts were large, overhead expenses were so high that the profits on the whole production will probably not ex ceed $100. YOU HAVE WRITTEN POEMS!
