By Richard Lebherz Some Summer Theatre Schedules SHADY GROVE'S SUMMER OFFERINGS SHADY GROVE'S summer offerings are beginning to look more like Las Vegas or upper New York's borscht circuit bill of fare. While there are several musicals, there are also several one-man or -woman shows like Debbie Reynolds, and Engelbert Humperdinck. Beginning Tuesday, June 2 thru 7th, "Laugh In's" comedians Rowan Martin will appear with all of their hilarity and jokes. Monday, June 8th thru 14th, soft-singing Steve Lawrence and his Ethel-Merman-of- the-night-club-circuit wife, Edye Gorme will be belting them out over the apron like the real pro that she is and the adoring husband that he is. Tuesday, June 16th thru 21, the musical with a Wall Street background, "How To Succeed in Business without Really Trying." Robert Morse and Rudy Vallee, both from the original Broadway cast, will participate. Tuesday, June 23rd thru July 5th -Barbara Eden will star in the Julie Andrews role of Maria, the girl who made it.from a convent to becoming one of the most noted group singers since the Andrew Sisters. The musical, by the way, is that one for all the family,' 'The Sound of Music.'' Monday, July 6 thru llth . . . Engelbert Humperdinck. Need I say more? Tuesday, July 14th thru 26th, the very, very talented and exceedingly good actress, Leslie Uggams starring as Sally in "Cabaret," the musical version of season is an exact duplicate at Owings Mill, including the cast. It's just the dates that vary. Here's the schedule. June 23rd thru 28th -- How To Succeed In Business June 29th thru July 5th -- Rowan Martin Show - July 7th thru 12th ---Leslie Uggams in Cabaret July 14th thru 19th -- Barbara Eden in Sound of Music July 21st thru 26th -- Mickey Rooney in George M. July 28th thru Aug. 8th -- Anne Corio in This Was Burlesque Aug. llth thru 23rd -- Howard Keel in Man From La Mancha Aug. 24th thru Aug. 30th -- Debbie Reynolds Show Sept. 1st thru 6th -- Robert Goulet Carol Lawrence Sept. 8th thru 13th -- Elke Sommer In Irma-La Douce YOUR TICKETS IN FIVE MINUTES Even though the AAA have been the official ticket agents for Shady Grove Music Fair at Gaithersburg for the past two years, somebody has been keeping that fact a secret. But now, the word is out. If you want to attend Shady Grove this summer, AAA can get you your tickets in five minutes . . . if they are available, of course. "We don't charge a fee for this service," says Richard Betson, the manager of the AAA here in Frederick, "but the customer must come into the office to pick up his What's In The Deck? A Gorme Delight And Steve Christopher Isherwood's "Berlin Stories." She ought to be perfect for the part. Tuesday, July 28th thru August 9th -Mickey Rooney playing the role of George M. Cohan in "George M." If there is any Irishman'alive who can breathe life into this difficult musical it is Mickey. . . Tuesday, Aug. llth thru 16th . . . the Loretta Young of the Hollywood musical comedy, Debbie Reynolds, in her own show. There are a lot of people who pooh-pooh Debbie, but I think she's got talent oozing out of her every pore. Tuesday, Aug. 18th thru 23rd . . . a sort of family at home show, "I Do, I Do! " starring that lovable young couple, Carol Lawrence and handsome Robert Goulet. They ought to make a smashing couple in this musical version of "The Fourposter," a play which starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronin. Tuesday, Aug. 25th thru Sept. 13th. Howard Keel will bring "Man From La Mancha" into Shady Grove. Certainly one of the best musicals written in the past ten years, with some of the finest music, including the popular "The Impossible Dream." If you haven't seen this musical, Howard Keel ought to be great in the role of Don Quixote. Tuesday, Sept. 15th thru 20th, the German actress, Elke Sommer will arrive in Irma La Douce. If she can sing, the musical ought to have quite a lot of life to it. Perhaps even if she can't, (which I doubt) Elke's curvacious personality will bridge the gap. Tuesday, Sept. 22nd thru 27th, Ann Corio will lumber in with "This was Burlesque" the same show that she has been carrying around on her capable shoulders (and pins) for the last few years. Perhaps it is fitting to close the summer season with a production that nostalgically suggests what burlesque was like when you took your clothes off indoors, to the sound of music, instead of out of doors in the reflecting pool at the Lincoln Memorial. This summer selection seems to be rivaling TV's re-runs and uninspired selections for hot summer nights. About the major advantage would be the fact that Shady Grove is air conditioned. . . PAINTER'S MILL AT OWINGS MILL The nicest thing about Painter's Mill is that in case I am wrong about the offerings at Shady Grove (and I certainly could be, couldn't I?) you can catch up with them at Painter's Mill. This particular summer's voucher and pay for his ticket at the same time. You can make a reservation through us by calling 663-4161. We don't guarantee seat assignments, however, but we can guarantee which section they will be in." The AAA ticket office will be open five days a week and on Friday until 8 p.m. It is suggested that you put in for your seat reservation well in advance. Phone Reservation at Shady Grove -- 9483400; Painter's Mill -- 363-0800. N.Y. City Opera Season NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York City Opera has announced that its fall season will open Sept. 9, with Boito's "Mefistofele," starring Norman Treigle. Two new productions done during the season will be Donizetti's "Roberto Devereux," with Beverly Sills as Elizabeth, and Czech composer Leos Janacek's "The Amkropoulos Affair," which will be having its New York stage premiere. Maralin Niska will sing Emilia Marty. There also will be one revival, Ginastera's "Don Rodrigo," for which Placido Domingo, now at the Metropolitan Opera, will sing the title role, as he did in 1966 at the opera's North American premiere. Soprano Gilda Cruz-Romo, who won the Metropolitan Opera auditions for young singers this spring, will sing Butterfly in "Madama Butterfly," another of the 14 operas to be offered during the 10-week season. Passes Up The Met NEW YORK (AP) - Leontyne Price won't be singing at the Metropolitan Opera next season. Instead, she'll sing in "II Trovatore" in October at Covent Garden and make her debut at the Hamburg Opera in November in "Aida." She will make a four-month United States concert and recital tour, beginning next January. She also will make several recordings. The soprano told Rudolf Bing, general manger of the Met, of her plans for singing abroad and for resuming her concert career, a year ago. Miss Sandra Kay Jackson Miss Jackson, T. E.

Use a white highlight stick for highlights and to camouflage circles under eyes, a blusher for shadow* and for contour corrections. Apply eye shadow (frosted for extra glamour) and medium brown or charcoal eyeliner (black is old- hat) or a jewel color eyeliner for an exciting effect. Properly shaped false eyelashes, unless your own are truly exotic, should be counted as necessities for evening wear. Helpful Hint...
