Various Types
Some jobs are constant
throughout the year, including

Besides making the holder eli

roles in major productions not al

the drama director.
Accidental Breaks
“Many a successful actor in the
professional theater received his
first 'break’ by accidentally be
ing on hand when a fill-in was
needed and making good in that
opportunity,” she added.
At present, out of a long list of
volunteers who have signed as

Special Interests
Mrs. Seybolt is anxious to hear
from any students who have spe
cial interests in other phases of
the theater such as make-up, pos
ter design, costuming, and pub
licity writing.
According to Mrs. Seybolt, a
person need not be an actor to
be active in dramatics, for it
takes all kinds of people to make
up a theater group.
