"The Family Upstairs" is coming to
Chautauqua. The irascible father,
the pretentious mother, the ne'er do
well son, and the captivating daugh
ter will all be present. Moreover,
they give the entire Chautauqua au
dience the benefit of their experience.
This play which opens Heppner's
five-day program on June 7 is a story
of a modern American family living
in a city flat. They have all the dif
ficulties, trials and troubles and joys
and successes of the ordinary Amer
ican family. Not in a generation has
there been a play more popular with
the great middle class American the
ater goers than "The Family Up
stairs' The story is built around the ef
forts f a modern American mother
to get her "old maid" daughter, who
is 21 years old, married. The daugh
ter has ideals of her own about the
necessity of getting married in a
hurry and wants to do her own choos
ing of a husband. The father is one
of those delightful old bears, who
make a great pretense of being rough
and grouchy, but who really lives
entirely wrapped up in his family.
His arguments with his wife and
fights with his son give many a family
a delightful touch of familiar home
life. The brother and sister get along
about like an older sister and younger
brother generally do and the bashful
young lover and his girl, planning to
take a Sunday picnic trip, have about
the customary experience of true love
that never runs smooth.
The Chautauqua plan of operation
has made good plays available to hun
dreds of communities which would
never be able to see them otherwise.
Such plays as "The Family Upstairs"
and "Believe Me Xantippe," also
coming to Heppner, cannot be seen
in any city theater for less than J2.50
for orchestra seats. The price of a
season ticket to the entire Chautau
qua including both plays and other
notable features is less than the cost
of one of these in a metropolitan
Of course, a good portion of the
price paid in a city goes toward rent
in expensive theaters, a lot more goes
toward moving the companies about,
advertising in city papers, and so on.
Chautauqua plan of operation in
which a hundred communities take
the same program, jumps are mini
mized, everything is handled in the
most efficient manner possible, has
brought the latest and best plays to
the door of rural America at bargain
Moreover, the Chautauquas have
been insisting more and more in re
cent years on high grade casts and
professional people. The cast to give
"The Family Upstairs" this year is
composed of thoroughly trained act
ors, who bring all the atmosphere of
the theater with them. Chautauqua
patrons can confidently count on hav
ing a rip-roaring good time when
"The Family Upstairs" comes to town.
