But with the Association for Women Students' arts festival, Oct. 1-5, opportunity knocks. Storyteller Jackie Torrence, dancer Joan Stone, singer Teresa Trull, and an all-female theater group will perform at Carolina as part of the five-day festival recognizing women's achievements in the arts. In addition, a wide variety of workshops, demonstrations, speeches and exhibitions, encompassing both the performing and non-performing arts, will be offered. The presentations, centered around the theme "Diversity in Expression," comprise the first half of a two-part festival which will conclude in the spring. But though the festival focuses on women, festival co-ordinator Michelle Brown said the activities scheduled should be of interest to both men and women. We want to stay away from extreme events or situations because we want it to appeal to both men and women," Brown said. "Since AWS is considered a feminist organization, we're trying hard to dispel the notion through our calendar of events. As it stands now we think it will." The four performances highlighting the festival will begin Monday night, when storyteller Torrence of High Point speaks on what it is like to be a woman storyteller and discusses the pitfalls in her profession. Although Torrence concentrates on ghost stories, legends and Uncle Remus stories, the two stories she selects for her 8 p.m. performance at Gerrard Hall may come from her repertoire of children's tales, black folklore, Bible stories and mountain lore. Admission is free and open to the public. The complete schedule for the festival follows: Sunday, Sept. 30 Photography exhibition works by Priscilla Rich on display this week in the Upper Lounge, Carolina Union.

Struggling wi By KATHY McADAMS Staff Writer Nicholas Searcy deserves credit for his portrayal of the man of than support, since Williams' script is aimed at portraits of the flesh. He runs into trouble, however, when John begins to two lead characters. Ken Strong, who plays John's father, stands mature. When he takes over his father's practice, he wears out with a good portrayal of an aging man, while others playing somber, doctor-like clothing for the first time, but he still conveys minor roles do not adapt as well to the increased years they must Tennessee Williams surely intended the character of Miss Alma to dominate his Summer and Smoke, but Charlotte Fleck's portrayal of the neurotic voice teacher more than carries the UNC department of dramatic art's production of this southern " carry on stage. For many scenes, the audience is fully transported to Glorious Hill. Then, in an instant, a strange accent or a misplaced gesture creates disbelief and returns the collective consciousness to the real world. But long after the play has ended, the memory of Miss Alma lingers. She is an amalgamation of many Southern aunts and grandmothers, and also of their present-day nieces and granddaughters a package of charm and repression, of fire and ice, of summer and smoke. Charlotte Fleck's fine performance captures the spirit of the quintessential Williams woman. the image of a boy. Visually, the drama department's Summer and Smoke is delightful. The set allows for clean, rapid scene shifts with a minimum of clutter and movement. Each piece of furniture and each silhouetted rooftop contributes to the mood created by Williams' words. Like the set, costumes visually strengthen the symbolic aspects of the play. Alma wears pale, graceful, high-necked gowns throughout the hot summer. Rosa Gonzales, daughter of the Casion owner, wears pinks and scarlets with many petticoats. around the couple reflect the fires that burn within. Both Alma and John are victims of passion, but of different sorts. She, as the minister's daughter, has cared for the rectory since her mother's "spells' became a permanent condition. She is duty-bound and idealistic repression hangs about Miss Alma like a cloud, but the spirit in her eyes, her voice and her stance reveal sensitivity within. John, on the other hand, wears his sensuality for all to see, spending his nights at the Moon Lake Casino with the owner's daughter, "a whiskey bottle in one hand and a pair of dice in the other," as Alma's father aptly comments. The play passes through summer and up to Christmas, as Alma awkwardly discovers life's sensual aspects while John grapples with the spiritual. And in the end, the two are as far apart as they were beneath the fireworks of summer. The intense sensuality of the play is convincing. As John unbuttons Alma's bodice to listen to her heart, even the audience senses the heat of the Mississippi summer. Later, in an abortive trip to Moon Lake Casino, he lifts the net to her hat and kisses her, saying, "Under the surface, you have a lot of excitement." v an unlikely remark; but utterly- serious and perceptive. . . A--. f;ss. yy.-v. j j classic. The first in this year's season of student shows, Summer and Smoke opened to an audience of more than 200 in the Paul Green Theatre Wednesday night. As Miss Alma, Fleck twittered, fluttered and lovingly created a memorable character in the midst of many less accomplished players. The play opens as Alma encounters her next-door neighbor, the doctor's son John, who has recently returned from medical school. They renew their acquaintance in the heat of summer it Eventually John is smitten by one of Alma's former students, Nellie Ewell. Laura Sumner as Nellie, despite her brief time on stage, provides a clear foil for Alma in that she is a healthy mix of spiritual and sensual loveliness.
