Special to Jewish News
STRATFORD, Ontario — Three
notable first nights Marked the
opening of the Shakespearean
Festival productions here this
week.
Unmatched enthusiasm greeted
the performance of "Richard II"
on Monday night.
It was followed, Tuesday, by the
presentation of "La Bourgeois Gen-
tilhomme," the Moliere comedy. It
was a departure from Shakespear-
ean programming a n d Douglas
Rain gave an excellent account of
himself as Join-dain.
On Wednesday, the Stratford
company preesnted "King Lear,"
and once again John Colic o s
emerges as one of the great actors
of our time in the title role as
Lear.
Willim Hutt as Richard shows
in his interpretation of a unique
role and the aid of a brilliant
cast at once placed the Stratford
season's activities on a high
plane.
Among the noteworthy portions
of this new season, scheduled
to be the longest, is the presenta-
tion in the storming of the Bristol
Castle in "Richard II", of the fenc-
ing master, Patrick Crean. The
flight sequence is one of the high-
lights of the festival.
A Welsh song written for the
festival by John Cook is another
specialty of note.
Interestingly enough, pointing
to the ingenuity of the director,
Michael Langham, is the resort
to a Shofar — the traditional
Jewish ram's horn used on Holy
Days—in "King Lear."
Music by Louis Applebaum adds
to the grace of the festival pro-
ductions and continued a long-
standing tradition for great thea-
trical arrangements.
Jean Cascon directed "Le Bour-
geois." Stuart Burge is the "Rich-
ard II" director.
"The Faces of Canada," the prin-
cipal exhibition of the Stratford
Festival's 12th season, will open in
the Festival Arena at 3 p.m. June
20. A sequel to the 1963 art show,
"Canada on Canvas," which was a
kaleidoscopic presentation of Can-
adian landscape from 1900 to the
present day, "The Faces of Canada"
will be concerned solely with por-
traits of Canadians by Canadians—
both paintings and sculptures —
and will consist mostly of works
done since 1900.
The Stratford Festival's Exhibi-
tions, which are under the super-
vision of Stratford Artist, Robert
Ihrig, will as usual occupy two
buildings on the River Drive with-
in a few minutes' walk of both the
Festival Theater and downtown
Stratford. In the Festival Arena,
where "The Faces of Canada" will
hang, there will be a display of
Shakespearean and rare books
loaned by Sidney Fisher, of Mont-
real, whose collection is rated one
of the most-prized on the con-
tinent.

'Kyushu Jew' Wins

ITAZUKE, Japan — The "Kyu-
shu Jew" has come in first. No,
this isn't a race horse or a Japan-
ese soccer team — the "Kyushu
Jew" is a chapel newspaper edited
by Chaplain (Capt.) Marvin L.
Tokayer, and it took first place
in its class in an annual contest
for such publications sponsored
by the First U.S. Air Force. Chap-
lain Tokayer, stationed at Itazpke
Air Base, serves the religious
needs of Jewish men of the USAF
in central Japan. The "Kyushu
Jew" is to all of these airmen
what the more ordinary synagogue
bulletin is to men and women in
civilian communities across the
United States. Staff writers are
AC2 Felix Orlin and AC3 Steve
Beckerman.
