MUSKETSetting It's Sights on Original Production

By LISSA MATROSS l
Maybe it began in 1956 when
they decided to let girls join in the
fun. Or maybe it was in 1963 when
Jack Rouse and Bruce Fisher took
over as director and musical di-
rector.
Whatever the cause, MUSKET
(Michigan Union Show, Ko-Eds,
Too) has become one of the finest
student musical productions at the
University.
MUSKET, which is organized'
under UAC, is unique as a campus
production in that it draws from
all parts of the campus. Unlike
Soph Show, made up of sopho-
mores, or University Players which
draws mainly from the speech de-
partment, last year MUSKET pro-
duction, "West Side Story" and
other past shows were made up

of grads and undergrads and drew
on all schools.
This year MUSKET is present-
ing two shows: "Out of Our
Minds," a student-written musical
show, and Cole Porter's "Any-
thing Goes." "Out of Our Minds,"
written by Charles Troy and Caro-
lyn Delevitt will be presented from
Jan. 25 to Feb. 4. It was written
in response to a University Ses-
quicentennial Celebration Com-
mitte request that MUSKET pro-
duce an original show to celebrate
the University's 150th anniversary.
MUSKET grew out of the all-
male Union Opera which was
founded in 1909 and in subsequent
years toured over most of the
United States. The actual MUSK-
ET organization was created in
1956 around the production of
"Brigadoon." In past years it has

presented "Kiss Me Kate" "Okla-
homa," "Carousel," "Kismet," and
"The Boy Friend." In 1961 and
1962 MUSKET also departed from
the pattern of presenting estab-
lished musical shows to produce
two original works, "Land Ho" and
"Bartholomew Fair" by Bob James
and Jack O'Brien, who is now with
APA.
O'Brien's current success is not
unique among past MUSKET peo-
ple. The show has traditionally
been a training ground for those
who do go in theatre. Another past
MUSKET player, Jennifer Har-
mon, is now with the APA. Royce
Linelle, who sang the role of Mar-
sinah in "Kismet," played the lead
in the off-Broadway hit, "The
Fantasticks."
As MUSKET chairman Richard
Rattner and assistant chairman

Rebecca Rapport explain, "MUSK-
ET is not a rah, rah extra-cur-
ricular activity. The cast rehearses
five nights a weeks and is made
up of people who have extensive
experience in summer-stock and
club work."
"MUSKET fulfills one of the
real purposes of a university," says
Rattner, "by offering the chance
to do a show on a polished, pro-
fessional level. Most of the cast
and those on the Central Commit-
tee, like Bruce Anderson, program
designer, hope to go on in their
special field of interest."
Putting on an original show like
"Out of Our Minds" gives these
pre-professionals a rare outlet for
creativity. Rebecca explains it this
way: "If you buy a Broadway show
you get the rights to everything-
music, scripts, even scenery. With

this show we start from scratch.
Carolyn or Corky will write a song
and then Don Gillis arranges it,
Bruce Hillman, the set designer,
had no precedent to go on."
"West Side Story," of course,
also came complete with a three-
hour movie and stereo records.
"Out of Our Minds" is based on
a generalized university, says Troy,
and doesn't follow the JUG, MUG,
UGLI circuit. "You don't need a
glossary for the show as there are
few 'in' references" he explains.
Connie Barron who played the
role of Maria in "West Side Story"
and will play also in "Out of Our
Minds" finds her current role to
be the most challenging. "In 'West
Side Story' you were part of a
gang. You had a purpose and had
the continuity of personality that
could be approached from one
position," she explains.
The difficulty with "Out of Our
Minds" lies in "trying to be versa-
tile enough to fit all the slots as-
signed to you-funny,. winsome,
satiric."
With "Out of Our Minds" going
on at the end of January and
"Anything Goes" scheduled for
March, MUSKET has virtually
taken over the Hobby Shop in the
basement of the Union on a twenj
ty-four hour basis.

Late at night you can hear di-
rector Bruce Fisher plead with a
group of singers that "the accent
is on the second syllable." Or you
can hear Jack Rouse, who is also
doing the choreography, explain'
with infinite patience that it is
indeed "the left foot that leads."
But the second syllable will get
accented and in January and
again in March MUSKET '66 will
go on.

Summary of Action Taken by Student
Government Council at Its Meeting
December 5, 1966
Approved: That SGC suggest the im-
plementation of a committee composed
of equal numbers of faculty, students
and administrators which will consider
the whole governmental process of the
University and make proposals for nec-
essary changes. SGC recommends that
a certain number of the meetings of
this commission be held as open hear-
ings at which interested -parties may
present their opinions. SGC also rec-
ommends that all business meetings be
open to. attendance by interested mem-
bers of the University community, and
that all such meetings have a constit-
uents' time.

tutionalize contact between the com-
mission and the student body in aj
number of ways (e.g., regular reports
to SGC by commission members and
various kinds of public forums ati
whichustudent opinion may be express-t
ed to SGC and to the members of the
commission).
Student positions on the commission
shall be filled by a petitioning proced-
ure, with petitions available now
through January 9. Petitioners will be
interviewed by an SGC committee
composed of two members of the Exec-
utive Committee, two Council members
and one member of the executive com-
mittee of GSC. This committee will re-
port to SGC on Thursday, January 12,
the names of eight nominees for the
four student positions. SGC, as a
whole, shall then interview the eight
and select the four members.
We urge that the commission not{
begin its formal meetings until Febru-
ary 1, so that the members may have
an opportnity to sample opinions from
their respective segments of the com-
munity.
Approved: That SGC reaffirm its de-
cision to select students for the sit-in
committee. Such selection will be done
through appointment by SGC January
19, 1967.
Approved: That $500 be allocated to
help pay the bills of the last teach-in,F
covering part of the cost of Auditor-
iums A, B, C, and D and Hill Audi-
toriumThis motion supercedes thedmo-
tion of November 28 allocating $300 to
this teach-in.
Approved: To allocate $100 toward the
Chess Club's participation in the Na-
tional Intercollegiate Chess Tourna-
ment, December 27-31, 1966 at Penn
State University.
Approved: That SGC reaffirms its de-
eision to participate in the Draft Com-
mittee. Membership shall be selected
through petitioning to SOC. Membert
shall be selected by the 12th of Jan-
uary. The commissionkshall consider
the issue of class ranking, and a de-
cision on that issue should be reach-
ed in time for students to apply for
the draft test given in the spring.
So that if a policy change is recom-
mended it may be effected this year.
Approved: That SGC reaffirms its de-
cision to select students for the Sit-in
Committee. Such selection shall be
done through appointment by SGC by
the 19th of January.
Approved: That Student Government
Council recognizes that, although it is
the legalrrepresentative of the student
body, this representation is meaning-
ful only if it includes direct consul-
tation with the students themselves.
To this end, Student Government Coun-
cil encourages all students to work
through new and existing, student or-
ganizations to express their o~pinion on
the needs and problems of the Uni-
versity.
Approved: Due to the events of the
past three weeks, the interviewing for
the Student Advisory Boards will be
suspended until next semester. All those
who have petitioned will be contacted
when the itnerviewing is about to be-
gin.
