A step-down center front section was constructed downstage. A level side stage was erected to the right. Mrs. Powers explained that the extra stage area would better accommodate the 37-member 'oast and bring the solo and 'duet acting closer to the audience. - c '~ A new ramp leading np to the stage also was built. ' · A n expenditure of $600 was needed · to obtain performance rights, Mrs. Powers noted. The p r o d u c t i o n ' s director a n d choreographer salaries are another major expense. But a Igrant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Arts "and Humanities Council will nearly meet these salaries, she (aid. ' : "Not including her salary as Center director nor use of Center grounds, the basic cost outlay of "Fiddler" will total about $2,500. _MAKING PRAYER SHAWLS · Costuming is "rag-bag," Mrs. Powers said.
