Brilliant Folk Plav Is
, To be Presented
CHITTING in the darkened Grand theatre watching a dress
O rehearsal of "The Piper," the Salem Drama league pro
duction to be presented this afternoon at the Grand theatre
at 2:30 o'clock, one realized as never before just how much
the little theatre movement is coming to mean to Salem.
Community of effort and a spirit of cooperation were evi
denced in the creative production; and enthusiasm and spon
taneity were the keynote attitudes of the 75 people making
up the cast. ,
Especially marked is the wonderful work which is being
lone with the children. Every
parent who sees the play to
day or tomorrow will be quick
to realize what such a play as
"The Piper" is doing for chil
dren. In the cave scene for
instance where the children are
gathered around the Piper, part
of the time sleeping, part of the
time talking enthusiastically there
has been developed a naturalness
in the wee actors that will go far
toward development of poise in
the young folk where ever they
may find themselves.
The production has such beau
ty of costuming in both color and
lines, such artistic stage settings.
the music has been so well fitted
to the mood ot the acting through
the efforts ot Mrs. William Burg
hardt. Marguerite Blumenburg
Dalton, and William Wright, and
the parts have been so naturally
developed that the ensemble is
beautiful and thrilllngly impres
sive. The play was written by Jose
phine Preston-Peabody and won
the 1910 Shakespearean Festival
prize. The following cast present
it for the first time in Salem:
