Tour Orient
On Aug. 22, the Michigan Union Show (Ko-Eds Too) will leave
Ann Arbor on the first leg of a 50.000 mile tour of the Far East. The
tour, completely sponsored by the Defense Dept., will take the 15-man
ensemble to such faraway places as Guam, Japan and Korea, where
it will perform for American troops stationed in those locations.
MUSKET Director Jack Rouse says that the show, entitled
"Entertainment, U.S.A.." draws from many sources for its material.
Although the MUSKET group stages Broadway musicals for its Ann
Arbor audiences, "very little" show material will be used on the tour,
according to Rouse. Instead, "all sources" are being relied upon:
pop music, rock and roll, bossa nova and folk music are all included
in the better than 40 numbers the group has learned for the tour.
Rouse says that last winter he submitted films and recordings of
past MUSKET presentations to the Defense Dept., and that the
MUSKET group is one of only "eight or ten" groups in the country
to be chosen for troop entertainment.
And polished entertainment it will be. The 13 people chosen. to
go on the trip have been rehearsing for better than 40 hours per week
since July 20.
Choosing the people for the tour wasn't an easy job, Rouse says.
He had to pick only 13 people from the 48 who were in the MUSKET
productions last year. "Of course there was some disappointment," he
says, "but we had to choose the most versatile and most mature people
in the company."
Since the troupe will be gone until November, all the members
had to drop out of school for the fall trimester. This presented no
real problem for the girls, but the guys in the cast went to summer
school so they could retain their student draft deferments while
they're on the tour.
