G&S Society To Present 'Patience'

"Patience" will be presented
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
as the fall offering of the Gilbert
and Sullivan Society.
The shows begin at 8 p.m. in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Poet in Love
Bunthorne, the aesthetic poet
and center of attention in the play,
is loved by twenty young maidens'
and oneunappealing old maid,
Lady Jane. Patience, the object
of Bunthorne's love, thinks he is
sort of "silly" However, she tries
desperately to love him, because
he is aesthetic. Love, to her, must
be selfless. Bunthorne's rival for
Patience's love is the poet Gros-
venor. Twenty dragoons vie against
Bunthorne for the love of the
twenty maidens.
Characters are Gershom Morn-
ingstar, Grad., as Bunthorne.

Overture Original
An original overture for "Pa-
tience" was written by Robert
Brandzel, '57.
When the group presented Gil-
bert and Sullivan's "Thespis,"
their former music director, Jerry
Bilik, '55, wrote in Sullivan style
the only existing music for that
play. Original scores had been,
lost after the first production in
England in the 1800's.
"Last semester's show, 'Pina-
fore,' really scared us," commented
Ann Polak, '60, publicity manager.
"All the feminine leads were sick
by the day of the show. We of theI
crews called the show, "Tvery
Lady Carried a Basket," since the
substitute actresses had to have
something to hide their cues in."
Lights Go Out
Dturing their history there was
also the play in which all the
lights went out and the orchestra
crawled around in the dark try-
ing to find the socket, which was'
somewhere in the orchestra pit.
Productions of Gilbert and Sul-
livan on campus include the "Mi-
kado," "Pirates of Penzance,"
"Gondoliers," "Trial by Jury,"
"Ruddigore," "Princess Ida," and'
The group tries to do all of the

WCBN Starts
Radio Show
WCBN, the residence hall radio
network, introduced a new pro-
gram to its listeners Friday 'Michi-
gan International.' It is being pro-
duced in order to bring to the
campus a greater awareness of its
international students, Marilyn
Damsky, '59, one of the program's
producers said,
The program was presented Fri-
day as a prelude to International
Week, Nov. 17-22 and will con-
tinue for the remainder of the
semester on Fridays from 5:00-
In order to give the University
students a broader view of the dif-
ferent aspects of international life,
the programs will feature inter-
views, panel discussions, music
from different countries, guest
lecturers, and discussions of the
different cultures, habits and prob-
lems of both international and
American students and "their rela-
tions with each other at the Uni-
Mr. William West, Student Ad-
viser for the International Center
and foreign students counsilor,
was the guest lecturer Friday.
The program is sponsored by the
International Coordinating Com-

tience" on Dec. 5 in Toledo, OhioI
and on Dec. 6 in the Rackham
Building in Detroit.
According to Jim Bob Stephen-
son, dramatic director, Gilbert!
and Sullivan tries to keep reserves
in both the singing and dancing1
choruses. "There were not as many
lead parts this year," Stephenson
said, "and therefore many of the
students who would take G&S
parts tried out for MUSKET. Some
had to take a choice in the shows
because of a conflict in perform-
ance dates."
"The more theatre that the com-
munity has, the better it is for
all," he added.
Plan Fortnite

sociation's annual Fortnite will be
held at 7 p.m. today and tomor-

presented at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 24 in
the Mendelssohn Theatre, will in-
clude skits written and produced,

sentations and a skit by house-

There will be a campus "World's
Fair" on Sat., Nov. 21, according
to Maurice L. Zilber, '60, Union
executive councilman.
The theme for this Fair. Zilber
said, is "Brussels in Ann Arbor,"

Belgium. A replica of the symbol
of the Brussels Fair, the Atomium,
will be on display at the Union

Brussels Fair. These have been
contributed by the United States
Department of State and the Bel-
gium Government.

floor will be photographs of the
American exhibit at the Brussels
Fair. These have been obtained
from the State Department.
On the second and third floors,
there will be booths representing

are students on campus. The

tion, Zilber said.
