`Now Hear This' Is So-So,
But SOCettes Are Sock()

By the Oak-Woodser
Costuming, sets, scenery and
SOCettes.
Those were the main ingredi-
ents of "Now Hear This," the
seventh annual production of
the South Oakland County Chap-
ter of Hadassah, which was
staged before over 5,000 last
Saturday and Sunday nights at
Ford Auditorium.
For the second year in a row,
it was the 16 girls who comprise
the SOCettes (and all but five
are new this year) that made
the show really worthwhile
entertainment.
The girls were given tre-
mendous and well-deserved
ovations for each of their
appearances—in the "Great
Day" number, which put the
show off to a fast start; a
Calypso bit that showed real
imagination and in the finale,
where they appeared with the
rest of the cast of 80 plus
men and women.
There were other bright
spots, to be sure, but the main
criticism of the overall show
was that it was too long and
was dulled by repetitions,
meant to be "cuties," that
dragged out the plot unnec-
cessarily.
The original story — with
music parodied from a variety
of sources—was certainly topi-
cal. It revolves around the open-
ing of the S-O-C Way, a take-
off, of course, on the St. Law-
rence Seaway project that just
opened this month.
