Barbara Pasquan, 'Winterset' Lead, Hopes
To Portray Young Miriamne's Full Personality
dy iwarjune nusn
I hope I can portray all the qual
ities of 15-year old Miriamne, said
Barbara Pasquan, who has the
feminine lead in “Winterset,” a
poetic drama which opens Dec. 2.
“Being in the first production
of the new University Theater is
a great thrill,’’ Miss Pasquan de
clared. “Especially when having a
prize-winning play and challeng
ing part with which to work.’’
Miriamne, daughter of the old
Rabbi Esdras, lives in a basement
tenement in New York. Here amid
poverty and the mystery sur
rounding a murder, she meets and
.falls in love with Mio.
Divided between her family
loyalty and love for Mio, Miriamne
is quite emotional and worried,
Miss Pasquan explained. She
seems older because of the im
portance she places on all matters
that are dear to her.
‘•To try to express Miriamne’s
true character and still keep her
15-year old quality is perhaps the
most interesting part of my job,’
Miss Pasquan said. “One may see
Miriamne maturing during the
course of the play.
“The beauty of the lines of
’Winterset’ is also outstanding.”
Small, dark Miss Pasquan, now
a sophomore in speech and drama,
had leading parts in several high
school productions in North Bend.
She is especially interested in tap,
toe, and ballet dancing, and after
college would like to combine a
dancing and acting career.
A member last year of Junior
Orchesis, modern dance honorary,
Miss Pasquan performed in the
production “Marco Millions.’’ In
high school she combined singing
and dance routines in a triple trio.
“Winterset” begins its run Dec.
2, continuing through Dec. 10.
Tickets are now available at the
i boxoffice of the University Thea
i ter.
