After the press had taken squatter's right 'on a respectable, downstairs seat, the reviewing of "Uncle Tom's Stabbin' " an original musical --comedy burlesque of an old American tragedy, which has been presented in tents and otherwise in Mason City for the past 50 years, was a pleasure. The production was staged by the junior woman's department of the Woman's club in a one night stand at the high school auditorium Tuesday evening. Written by Irene Holman,' Mary- Stevens, Eleanor HcLaughlin and Bee Lynch, and directed by Velma Grippen, the musical extravaganza, ·based on a play of slavery days, offered an altogether refreshing and novel version of a plot and characters more or less worn out on the American stage. Cabin is Moved. Moved to Harlem, Uncle Tom's cabin has become a night club, according to the authors of the 1934 version. A sextet of chorines consisting of Esther Baldwin, Edythe Kropman, Harriet Jordan Robinson, Ramona Liesveld, Dorothy Conlrn and Audrey Andrews, all of them somebody's daughters, according to the program, gave the cabin its at- Snosphere of night life with several fast stepping chorus numbers, and incidentally unusually clever costumes. The dances were directed by Dorothy Madsen and the music was arranged and presented by Marianna Sheffler and Jean Mickey. The action of the play centered around the mysterious stabbing of Little Eva, played by Olga Moen, and the unraveling of the mystery. The stabbing scene was one of the "tensely dramatic spots" of the play, with Little Eva ascending into the flies immediately afterward via a child's swing, enshrouded with so much laughter that her dying speech, "Come up and see me some,time," was barely audible. Pictures Sold. Between the first and second acts, Little Eva, greatly assisted by .the sales talk of Eliza, played by Dorothy Decker, sold pictures of herself to members of the. audience. Miss Decker proved to be .one of 'the hits of the show, with her song jiumbers, "I Just Couldn't Take It Baby!",. "Give Me Liberty or Give s-"and^Going, Going Gone.' i-j-B-jMiT number was sung during Star-much reputed ice scene, in which blocks of white ice, hard wa ter and frozen assets were strung across the stage. Between the second and thirc acts, Miss Moen sang one of the hits of the show, "If Jack Were Only Here." This was presented with the flourishes of the days of the illus rated songs. Miss Moen's costume vas the latest design of 1880. Late in the third act and quite Ui ine with mystery plays, the guilt of the stabbing was placed on the jme honored innocent Uncle Tom, ilayed by Louise Leach. Old Uncle ?om, it was revealed, stabbed .Uttle 5va, because she held the mortgage on his cabin. He was hustled )ff to the bailiwick, upon this dis- overy by the father of Little Eva, Augustus St. Clair, played by Grethen Carlson. Mary Gould, with boots and vil- ainous appearing attire, cracked the whip of Simon Legree through ie play but turned out to be itot be villain she was suposed to be. :he part was well played with Le- ;ree striding the boards like a vet- ran. Jean Barclay, as Topsy, a blond mulatto, sang "Frosted Chocolate," Eadie Was a Lady," an climaxed ler performance with "Did You lver See a Dream Walking?" in -hich the chorus joined her. Sing Duet. Catherine Sheffler, playing.the role f Aunt Ophelia St. Clair and Lilian Leedstrom, as Horace Dinsmore, reached the heighth of their jerformance in a duet, "You're An 31d Smoothie." Eleanor Hazlett played the role of Clancy, the officer, and Phyllis ~ropp was the coroner. The opening and closing numbers of tL3 show were adaptations from 'Swimee River,".with the cast re- ating the' events of the play in iong. It was the first attempt of the Women's club to present an orig- nal evening's entertainment of the ;ype and was highly successful. The auditorium was practically filled. Prize Play Presented. Most of the audience of the first show and a number of newcomers attended the performance of "Ten Minutes by the Clock," the Woman's club prize winning one act play, which was presented following "Uncle Tom's Stabbin'." The finish and smoothness of the fantasy were ample evidence for its winning the award from 24 other entries. Directed by Mrs. E. E. Hunter, the play moved lightly and afforded much amusement both from the idea, and the rhythmetic precision to which it was set. Attractive costuming added much to the performance. E x c e l l e n t performances were given by the members of the cast, all of whom are well known to Mason City playgoers. Mrs. R. E. Romey took the part of the queen, Dr. H. K. Jones, the king; Mrs Charles Grippen and 'Mrs. Douglas Swale, Dux" and Dox; Mrs. Draper Long, the queen's page; Miss Gretchen Bickel, the maid; Don Helbling, Bitter-Batter, the cook; Edwin Helbling, the gypsy, and R. A Washburn, Tom-Pom, the king; butler. Factory Sponsored 1/2 Price Sale ON 1847 KOGEES BROS. Anniversary and Ancestral Patterns WATCHES HlAMONOS 3 WEST STATE T. N. T.
