SUBTLE SATIRE IS
The Romancers' Greeted by
Near Capacity Audience
on Initial Showing
By JESSIE STEELE
If you are artistic and Imagin
ative enough to appreciate Louis
XV settings and dialogue, and
can grasp satire without confus
ing it with dead earnest, you will
enjoy "The Romancers' now
playing in the Nelson auditorium.
But If you are a matter of fact
person, perhaps a movie fan, don't
go because you will be dis
appointed. Friday night the play dragged
badly in the first act but picked
up as the two scheming fathers,
Roswell Wright and Ronald Cra
ven, got on with their comedy
scenes. In places it was finished
and quite beautiful. Such a scene
was the false abduction with mu
sic and subdued lighting.
J. Lyman Steed as Stratforel
shone throughout the drama. His
hearty laugh at hiB first entrance
was typical of his robust, natural
performance. Genevieve Thayer
was pretty and graceful as the ro
mantic Sylvette and Lawrence
Brown satisfactory in his role as
the lover, Perclnet. The direction
by Lucille Tucker Paulus kept the
action going and saved the rhym
ing lines from dragging the en
tire performance into dullness. A
near capacity house greeted the
Chemeketa Players' first night.
