14 F*.J4,1K4 Cttj GIoh*-Ga»ltc, M»KMJ City, I* "WISHING WORLD"-Youth will have itHay tn° the 1954 "Darktown Varieties,", fifth annual musical production of the Holy Family Athletic Association, which opens at the High School Auditorium Sunday for one rnatinee and three night performances, closing March 2. Mdry Beth Sartor and Jack Johnson have the juvenile leads in this story about "A Wishing World." * Youth Takes Over in '54 Varieties' Youth will carry the ball when the fifth annual "Dark-town Varieties" production of the Holy Family Athletic Association opens at the High School Auditorium Sunday. There will be plenty of old time favorites, too, but the youngsters will be in the top bracket. This year's production is built around the theme of "A Wishing World," and is the story of Lanny Peters, who has but one desire, to be an actor. Jack Johnson is the lad rapidly developing into the juvenile lead of. the show. His determined mother, .not in agreement with Lanny's theatrical aspirations, is portrayed toy Mrs Robert Geltman; his love-struck brother, Nels, by James Grell, and the object of his affections by Miss Ann Good. Lanny's tvvinkle-toec sister, Debbie, is dancing Mary Beth Sartor, the other juvenile lead. Complications are added when fellow 'troopers attempt to persuade Mother Gettman to join a new act. Troopers Dorothy Wilsou, Tom Pattee and Harry Ross are turned down because of mother's fear of setting a bad example for her brood. Ross mischievously sticks around to prove to the children that after all if!is just a "Wishing World." Proving to Lanny that dreams do come true, however, Pierre^ played by Helmer Kapplinger, introduces s u c h production numbers as "Memory Lane," "Coupla Swells," "Stranger in Paradise," "Louisa," "Sittin 1 on Top q£ the World," "When.Love Goes Wrong," "Rhapsody in Blue," "Angel Child" and "I'm Gonna Live Forever." All seats will be reserved. There .will be a children's matinee Sunday afternoon. Tickets are on sale at the B. O. Rexall Drug; Casey . Rexall Drug; M.B.A. Pharmacy; St. Clair-Starks and Engler Drug. Reservations are being made at the Vance Music Company.
