Montlary, Chris "Stage Manager" (Tucson Daily Citizen 03-19-69) - 'MOUSE-TRAP' at are and Mark IHHS Presents...
'MOUSE-TRAP' at are and Mark IHHS Presents Drama By DEBBI PENDLEY IHHS Correspondent "It simply shows that it isn't because women are nervously constituted that they're afraid of mice," says Deby Royals por- ·aying Mrs. Miller in William Dean Howclls' play ''The Mouse-Trap," I he current production of Ihe [mmaiiiilalo Heart drama class. Since this play is set in the anti-suffragette era, 1889, of Vic- { loriau England the cast found it i quite difficult to assume the i identity of the various characters. Their problems stemmed from the fact that the "hour-glass figure," reflecting the Victorian period, could only be accomplished by tight lacing of corsets which, while they compressed the waist, had a tendency to extend the hips, resulting in nothing less than torture. The girls not only had to walk differently, but each bend and gesture had to be adapted to Ihe Victorian era-elbows close lo , their sides and a mincing walk j and carriage, referred lo in t h a t J era as the "Grecian bend." i j The play revolves around the i debated fact that the courage of j women is, in a high degree, a moral one which is not evoked by the conditions of peace or war but requires the imminence of some extraordinary, some vital emergency. "The Mouse-Trap" was directed by Fr. Cornelius Waldo and co-directed by Michele Marine, Prop and stage manager was Chris Montlary. The cast, now in character, includes: Mrs. Somers (Debbi | Pendley), a young widow who is engaged to Mr. Campbell (Kathy Simon) who had made a. ! speech in which he asserted that i women have no physical courage, Jane (Sylvia Aufere) is Mrs. | Somers' maid; Mrs. Miller (Deb- { ! by Royals) and Mrs. Curwcn ! j (Clara Huth) who violently hate j I each other; Mrs. Betnis, (Jean | ! Sullen) who is a chronic worry-; I wart and Mrs. Roberts (Margce ' Roe) who is Mr. Campbells sister. The play was presented to the student body last Tuesday and will be presented to the public tomorrow night at 8 p.m. in multi-purpnse room of Immaculate Heart High School at 625 Magee Rd. There will be a 7oc donation for adults and 25c for children.
