mom - School Operetta Makes "Big Hit" To an audience...
School Operetta Makes "Big Hit" To an audience that amply filled Provo high auditorium fifth and sixth graders of Timpanogos school entertainingly brought back the mischief-making of "Tom Sawyer" Thursday night. Best-done perhaps was the graveyard scene, which appropriately thrilled the large body of small students who attended the show. Eerie gravestones, dancing skeletons, and the dark deeds of Injun Joe added to the fun. Dale Taylor took the part of Tom with Bcrnell Boswell turning in a good performance as his partner. Huck Finn. Fern Kopp was fine as Aunt Polly. Among the interesting bit performances was that of La Veil Riohins as Jim, the colored boy. LaOma Thurber exhibited a pleasing voice in singing the role of Becky Thatcher. Uniformly good portrayals featured the remainder of the cast: Dean McEwan, Anagene Davies, Sharrett Moore, Elmo Ellison. Gloria Taylor, Roen Thurgood. Jack Hill. Lynn Taylor, Kent Taylor, Glen Brown, Robert Free, Audrey Mehl, \Vayne Haws, Joyce Johnson, Laie Thurber, Joyce Jones. Robert Penrod, Furrier Clark. Dorothy Edwards introduced tlic play. Verl Lung, first-grader, son of the Lcvi Longs, proved a real trouper between acts with his accordion selections. The boy. barely 8 years old, has never received a roguUir lesson. The top-dancing of lillk- VerDon Hatch was also well done. Jna Webb directed the show with Mrs. Susa P. Whitaker, in chiirge of dramatics, staging, costumes and dancing. Edna Boyle directed make-up; Wanda M. Snow, scenery; Belva Menzies, 'business: and Naomi Hoover, programs and advertising.
