Entertainment The Salina Journal Monday,,April 8, 1985 Page 16 'As You Like It' set for April 15 at Marymount Theatergoers who attend Shakespeare's pastoral comedy, "As You Like It," on April 15 at Marymount College will see one of his most popular plays. Coming as it did between two of Shakespeare's most well-constructed comedies — "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Twelfth Night" the play is a romance of true love with little or no plot. There is no threat of impending disaster, and there is a happy ending. Shakespeare was dramatizing a popular novel, "Rosalynde," by a man named Lodge, who in turn based nis story on-a late medieval poem entitled "Gamelyn." Shakespeare added a few charac- taers to his version, such as Le Beau, Corin, Audrey and William, but the most famous of his additions were Touchstone and Jaques. The result is a completely new work — a romance of freedom and happiness with the Forest of Arden as its setting. , The title was suggested by a \ phrase in Lodge's dedication to his ••novel: "If you like it, so." ; Since 1740, the play has been a ; popular favorite, possibly because •many actresses have found Rosal: ind a ' perfect vehicle for them- v selves. She is disguised as a male 'youth throughout most of play, which may be because of the neces- ; sity of using boy actors to play female roles on the stage of Shake- rspeare's time. ; The role has attracted many leading actresses, with Katharine Hep:burn the last to star in it on Broadway. • "As You Like It" will be presented at 1 and 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theatre under the auspices of the Marymount College Artist Series. Tickets are on sale in the Fine Arts box office. They are $5 for the general public and $3.50 for students and senior citizens at the evening performance. All tickets for the matinee are $2.

The ticket office, in the KW 'Wallenberg 7 compelling drama NEW YORK (AP) - Richard Chamberlain, still boyish after all these years, stars as Raoul Wallenberg, a real-life character who justly deserves being called a hero, in a miniseries that tells the story of the Holocaust in a compellingly different way. The two-part thriller, "Wallenberg: A Hero's Story," is on NBC tonight and Tuesday night. Has it really been a quarter-century since Chamberlain rocketed to fame in "Dr. Kildare" in 1961? Since then, he's become Mr. Miniseries with leading roles as the swashbuckling John Blackthorne in "Shogun" and the tormented priest in "The Thorn Birds." . You may see a few lines on his face, but he's still the perfect choice to play Wallenberg, a 33-year-old Swedish aristocrat who used his diplomatic cover to save the lives of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews in 1944. In this age of hype, Wallenberg deserves all the best TV adjectives: brash, brave, charismatic and charming, and Chamberlain cuts a dashing figure bringing him to life. Even his accent fits. Wallenberg received a degree in architecture from the University of Michigan, and Chamberlain's English has a modified Swedish lilt. Wallenberg's adversary in Hungary was none other than Adolf Eichmann (Kenneth Colley) who rode shotgun on Hitler's "final solu- Briefs Richard Chamberlain as Raoul Wallenberg. tion" scheme to wipe out the Jews. Although the Hungarian leader, Adm. Nikolas Horthy (Guy Deghy), was an avowed bigot — "I was an anti-Semite before you were born," he tells Eichmann — he draws the line at death camps. He also notes that Jews have been an integral part of Hungary's economy for centuries. ' But Wallenberg knows that the strings of every puppet can be tightened and that the Nazis have gotten some trainloads of Jews past the Hungarian authorities. One such death caravan is pulling out of the train station when Wallenberg first arrives in Hungary. Wallenberg's Marquee 'Eyes in the Sky* workshop set "Eyes in the Sky," a Saturday Afternoon at the Art Center workshop for children in grades one through six, will be offered Saturday. The center is located on the Kansas Wesleyan campus. The workshop will be taught by Jerry Whistler, remote sensing specialist for the Applied Remote Sensing Program at the University of Kansas. It is sponsored by Kennedy and Coe and Salina Building Systems, Inc., as part of the Salina Arts and Humanities Commission's "Journeys" series. It is free and open to the public. Whistler will give a slide presentation on how information is acquired and interpreted from satellite and high altitude photographs and computer generated images. Participants first will tour the Art Center's "Mapping Realities" exhibit, then will learn how to decipher actual aerial photographs of Salina taken from an altitude of 40,000 feet. Two workshop sessions are scheduled. Children in grades 1-3 should enroll in the 1-2:30 p.m. session. Those in grades 4-6 should enroll in the 2:30-4 p.m v session. Enrollment is limited and pre-registration by Wednesday is required. Call the Art Center at 827-1431 from 1 to 4 p.m. The center is closed on Mondays.

This dedicated man of action cuts through' the red tape and prints Swedish citizenship papers to give the Hungarian Jews protection. Eichmann calls them "magical cards that change Hungarians into Swedes," but, most of the time, he's forced to honor them. Wallenberg sets up safe houses for the Jews under the colors of the Swedish flag, even charming Hungarian soldiers to guard them with references to promotions. In return for more benevolent treatment of the Jews, Wallenberg assures the Nazi and Hungarian leaders that he would be a friendly witness in any post-war criminal trials. This leverage doesn't work with Eichmann, though, and some of the miniseries' strongest scenes involve the two rivals. Filmed entirely in Yugoslavia, "Wallenberg" is a moving, intensely committed story that provides a personal deviation from the almost- numbing mass-of-humanity efforts previously done on the Holocaust. "Wallenberg" is the first part of the Dick Berg Film Festival. Berg also is executive producer of "Space," next week's 13-hour blockbuster on CBS. Gerald Green, who won an Emmy Award for NBC's 1978 "Holocaust," wrote "Wallenberg." THE CELLARS Salina's ONLY Italian Restaurant Mon. Tues. Wed. 11:00 A.M.-8:30 P.M.
