The l- payers will con-
vert Trueblood Auditorium into an
Elizabethan stage in order to pre-
sent both sections of Shakespeare's
"Henry IV" as a part of the 1961-
62 playbill.
The two Shakespearian plays
are a part of the six plays and one
opera that the Players will per-
form this year.
Theplayers will build a 20-foot
extension onto the Trueblood
stage to help "create atmosphere."
The University Players have
been producing plays for over 50
years under one name or another.
They are a branch of the Univer-
sity's speech department.
Not School
Playbill business manager Rich-
ard Lutz, Grad., commented that
"the approach to dramatic acting
is not in any way intended as a
professional school type course.
"Professional training is kept
to a minimum; the real purpose
of playbill is to help these' people
become more intimately acquaint-
ed with great literature through
the acting of it."
He noted, however, that several
distinguished actors, including
Ann B. Davis and Robert Q. Lewis
have been graduates in the Play-
ers' programs.
This year, the playbill will be-
gin with three performances of
"The Trial" based on the novel
by Franz Kafka on Oct. 25-28.
No Charges
The play concerns a man who
is arrested, tried and executed
without ever knowing what his
offense it. It will be directed by
Andrew E. Doe.
Following will be George Ber-
nard Shaw's "Arms and the Man"
on Nov. 8-11. A playbill official
noted that this "light comedy will
help vary the fare offered during
the season."
Shaw was a believer in didactic
art and used the forms of come-
dy and tragi-comedy to convey,
his ideas regarding evolution, so- r
cialism and many other questions
which arise within this context.
It wll- be directed by Prof. Hugh
Z. Norton.
The next production will be
Shakespeare's "Henry IV,' part
one, Dec. 11 and 12 in the modi-
fied Trueblood Auditorium.
Henry's Youth
The play concerns the youth-
ful days of Prince Henry, when
the suceession to the throne is In

doubt. Prince Henry is leading a
rather dissolute life, symbolized
by Falstaff, a braggard and liar.
As the play progresses, Hot-
spur, a soldier of Henry's father
revolts. Hotspur seems to repre-
sent all that would be desirable
in a future king as opposed to
Henry. At the end of the play,
Prince Henry defeats Hotspur
and Falstaff and his way of life
is discredited.
The second part of the play will
be presented May 7-12.
Becomes King
Here, Henry has become king
and has taken the duties serious-
ly, divorcing himself from the tav-
ern life that he earlier led. In the
end, Falstaff is not only complete-
ly discredited but is actually cast
aside. Lutz commented on the
Shakespeare plays, "It is not nec-
essary to see them both to enjoy
one of them. Both of them are
artistic entities and can be en-
joyed separately or together."
Prof. William Halstead will direct.
Jan. 10-13, Playbill will present
the premier productionofBar-
ton Wibble's "The Faces of
Malte." The play was based on
"Malte Lourids Brigge" by Rilke.
It concerns the desperate search
of a dying Danish boy for salva-
tion. The play is mostly told inl
terms of memories of childhood.
Former Student
Lutz compared the play to "an
Ingmar Bergman play" in tech-
nique. Wibble is a former Univer-
sity student. The play will be di-
rected by Andrew E. Doe and will
be presented in Trueblood.
Following w i ll be Graham
Greene's "The Living Room" on
March 21-24.
Greene, an English author, has
been noted in the past for such
works as "The Potting-Shed" and
quite recently his novel "Our Man
in Havana.
He has written a number of
books, plays and short stories.
"The Living Room" will be direct-
ed by Prof. Hugh Z. Norton.
Also included in the series will
be an opera to be announced in
the fall, April 26-28 in coopera-
tion with the music school. ' Jack
E. Bender will direct the play with
Prof. Joseph Blatt conducting the
orchestra.
Season tickets are $7.00 and
$5.00 plus 25 cents extra for each
Friday or Saturday night per-
formance desired.
