A-i Thur»cf*y, U«y 27, Tr» 0«Hy lnt»f L«k«. K«K»p«U, Moot*n* ^^ Review lauds latest FVCC play By BILL ROSSITER A funny tiling happened at the collage the other night: it was the opening of "Black Comedy," presented by the Flathead Valley Community College drama depart- :·: ment. ;:· Peter Shaffer's one-act comedy, ·:· in the hands of a superb cast and a ;i; first-rate director, put the too- :·: small audience through all the jij hoops from chortle to guffaw. 5 The story is somewhere between ·j! nonexistent and preposterous -- a situation, really: A starving sculptor and his debutante fiancee are awaiting the arrivals of 1. her father, Colonel old-school-lie- ehwhat Melkett, guaranteed to loath the seedy bounder come to cart off his daughter, and 2. the richest man in the world, reported to fancy our hero's art. To put on the dog a bit, the ill- starred couple have "borrowed" a few items of expensive furniture f r o m a n a n t i q u e - c o l l e c t i n g neighbor, conveniently absent for the weekend. A power failure arrives before the guests do, and the confusion slowly dismantles our hero, Brindsley, before our very eyes. Tbe cast serves up this porridge like a troupe of veterans, under the hand of Director Chris Gauf. Bob Zahrobsky dithers himself into despair with only the barest hint that he'll survivie the evening; Michelle Stolpa's scatterbrained debutante fairly begs for a fortune- hunting artist to abscound with her. Julie Fletcher pilfers a scene or two with her veddy propah maiden lady, accidentally taking her first nip I " . . . a n d this w o u l d be alcohoool?") All Gauf, somewhere between Teddy Roosevelt and Colonel Blimp, blasts and byjoves the blighters and won't stand for anything whatsoever; Mike Clark gets more prance to the ounce than Rex Reed and Pinky Lee; and Susan Skelly's bathrobe-clad Clea metes out discord with blithe-spirit verve (and a bottle of vodka). The entire production, from tet to direction to acting. U handled deftly. Everyone In the cast remembers to "act" when not speaking, a small point, but one which separates the dabbler from the actor. The British accents wane and wax a bit, but not uncomfortably; Brindsley may be forgiven a UttJe opening-night overzealousnew in his dithering; Miss Furnival's brilliant quest for "lemonade" may distract a bit at stage left; but these pecidHlo» arc overwhelmed by UM cast's general excellence. Unabashed ilapilick comedy Is not often attempted with much we- ' cess, perhaps because it demands total assurance in handling by all concerned; without assurance it flounders painfully. : "Black Comedy" will return to i the college's Theatre 51 tonight Friday, and Saturday at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available at Sound Etcetera. Don't miss "Black Comedy." You'll love it. Fill dirt available for area residents Need some dirt for fill? As the result of recent street renovations, the city of Kalispell has more dirt than it can find places to dump it. Any resident who would like some of the excess dirt can call the city engineer's office at 755-5457, Mayor Norma Happ said. Happ said the city preferred those wanting the dirt would be able to haul it away themselves. She added that the dirt was of poor quality and contained rocks. Perform a deaths-defying act.
