PRICE II.M fHONE 717 and ixwfilblr the Witch Boy can lie Hllcftorlccd Into something more or less Interesting. Most of the Icnnor characters, however, arc ! cither unriiffcrenllati'd or jjro- Icsque, · . Choreography OatiUndlrif The dialect used by all the speakers Is n strange mixture of the language of 'the Inhabitants of Dog Patch and that'.-ot Uncle Remus. The timing, the grouping, the general finish' of the performance evidenced 1'ie unquestioned nnd blc competence of Nornuiii DcMarco's direction, but, is the script gave him little to work with, the must enjoyable larls of the performance were the lances. Eleanor King's choreograr made the opening scene a memorable experience. The dance of the witches against Preston Miigriiricr's exquisite'set shpwlns he rocky top of Old Baldy Moun- ain Induced exactly tlie sense of ·vil loveliness or love evil which, me suspects, the whole play was nearit lo give. And, the feeling vas recaptured, in a measure at cast, in the last scene of the play. The slrang music, in which the rchestration of Tom Whitakcr nnd Glen Bowen metamorphosed the tune "B a r b a r n Allen" into something eerie and vaguely evil also helped to create a mood. Dance, lighting, music, scenic effcctr can and should be used to evoke moods, but the play which depends for its effectiveness on these essentially theatrical effects is a weak play. A strong play speaks to the intelligence and to sharply dlffcrenti- «U:d emotions. Jim Kicfncr as the Witch Boy and . Sue Rcdyard as Barbara Allen gave remarkably good performances. Barbara Bennett ns Edna Summey, Ben Bolt as Mr. Summeyj John McFann as Marvin Hudgens, and Margaret Carner as Mrs. Allen stood out in a large and compclen^ supporting cast. William Janncy as Mr. Allen seemed a shade condescending to his role," and George Freeman did not get the f u l l value out of the ""· "m scnted two ipecial vocal numbers accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Lynn Smith. Refreshments' Vfcre served by the hostesses, Mrs. Charles Sharurn, Miss Thclma Teeter, Miss -Bernice Thurmond, Mrs. lone Sineletary, Mrs 1 . Kenneth .Morris, and Miss Ada Smith.

The services are being conducted by senior Chaplain W._W. P. Rhys. pnrt of. Preacher Haggler, whose lines Indicate that he is meant to be a slncei'Cj though not very courageous, man, rather than a caricature. The' direction, the acting, the choreography, the music, the sets, the costumes, the lighting were all of such excellence that It is a pity that "Dark of the Moon" is not a better play.
