Young Thespians Busy At City Playgrounds By JUANITA CRESP1NO . A lovo of the theatre has apparently rubbed off on the youngsters in our town. Last week, for example the supervisors nt the city's playgrounds suggested that the children present plays and invite their families and friends to see them perform. They were thrilled beyond words at the prospect and loved every minute of the work that went into the productions. Some of the children even went so far as to write plays themselves, borrowing a few ideas, if course, from well-known fairy (ales. The plays, for the most part, were also directed by members of the young set. Utilizing a variety of props and make-shift scenery, the young Thespians highlighted each of the performances with their own costumes. "Cinderella" Popular Three of the groups presented "Cinderella," each, however, with different lines though the plot was essentially the same. At Greenway Park, under the supervision of Miss Scottie Schwarz, there were two Cincler- ellas. Docia Baker and Nancy Henderson, but Prince Charming DOCTOR Dorothy Bran!

Portraying the mean sisters were Margaret Reynolds, Gay Tu- bcrtini, Etta 'Jltlelon, and Rosalea Moggio. Tlw Fairy Godmother was Judy Ferris. Bob Baker, Jackie Henderson, and Joe Eyers were The Dukes and Jimmy Ferris and Mike Tones were the Pages, with Madeline Maggio portraying the Lady. Basic Characters At Trigg Playground, 'Cinderella" had only the basic characters. Mildred Roncali played the part of the heroine, assisted by Douglas Bailey as Prince Charming and Ruby Johnson as the Fai-y Godmother. Others in the cast included Vickie Lnfon as the wicked stepmother and Sandra Harris and Judy Harris, sisters in real life, as the mean step-sisters of the fairy tale. Robert Bailey was the King and Jerry Roncali, the Duke. The group was directed in their presentation by Miss Elizabeth Huffman, playground supervisor. Miss Mary Lewise Bullock's group at Strange Park wanted to present two plays, "Cinderella" and "The Elves and the Shoemaker." Patty Kuntz in a white dress with pink raffles portrayed the beautiful Cinderella at the ball, and Jack Kahlstorf with a crown on his head was the Prince Charming of yore. In Evening Gowns Wearing an aqua evening dress and waving her magic wand was the Fairy Godmother, Doris Purdue. Also in evening dresses were the wicked step-sisters, Marilyn King and Sharon Vaughn, with Claire Marie Parks acting 'CINDERELLA' IN actors and actresses played in "theater circling the players, as their mother. The King, resplendent in robe and crown, was Barry Burt. A messenger boy even got into the act, in the person of Bobby Scofield. The cast wrote the play in its entirety, produced end directed it themselves, reports Miss Bullock. Each character made up his own lines, which is quite an accomplishment, considering that not many grown-ups would embark upon such a feat. "Elves And Shoemaker" In the presentation of "The Elves and the Shoemaker," Bobby Scoficld in white apron ajul hat portrayed the legendary shoemaker, with Patty Kunlz acting THE ROUND -- At Greenway Park, young go through the age-old drama of "Cinderella", in the round" style with parents and friends (Staff photo) as his wife, wearing an old, rag ged, plaid dress.

Then along came the good Nutrition Fairy, bringing with her the good food famiiy, including Molly Milk, Goldy Orange, Tlio- mas Tomato, and Betty Beet. It was a play with a moral as Fanny Fried Food, Tricky Tea, Sadie Pickle, Fatty Doughnut, and Katie Kandy give place to better and more nutritious foods.

"Radio Time" "Radio Time" was the title of the play written, directed, and produced at Maud Bryan Park, under the sup ervision of Miss Helen Kirksey. Serving as the announcer was Eddie Skelton. Evidently they had a commercial, or perhaps this was another of the famous or infamous "soap operas." At any rate, the two actual characters were Thomas Holly John and Patty Penni as Virginia. Others in the cast and the part each played were: Jimmy Yeager as the prize fight announcer, Sharon Letchworth as the recipe -food program announcer, Ronnie Lerchworth as the politician, David Yeager as the cowboy, and Tommy Cockeran as the candy bar announcer.
