'U To Use
Decide To Construct
$4 Million Structure
With Donor Funds
By LEONARD PRATT
The University, after almost a
year's hesitation, yesterday an-
nounced plans to use a gift esti-
mated at $1.3 million from Eugene
Power, a former Regent, toward
the construction of a $4 million
It is anticipated that both pro-
fessional and student groups will
use the structure, the University's
first new stage facility in 35 years.
The building, is being designed by
Kevin Roche, John Dinkeloo, and
Associates, of Hamden, Conn.,
while the stage is being designed
by Jo Mielziner, of New York.
The project disappeared from
public view last September, when
an editorial critical of its finance
ing appeared in The Daily, The
editorial stated that the gift would
have meant the diversion of serce
University funds-to make up the
difference between Power's con-
tribution and the total cost-to a
University officials say the fi-
nancing has changed since then.
Power's gift is now a part ofthe
$55 Million Fund Drive, from
which the additional $2.7 million
of the total cost must come before
construction can begin, Marvin L.
Niehuss, executive vice-president
The gift, made up of stocks, puts
the $55 Million drive at a total of.'
about $43 million, Niehuss said.
Plans call for the theatre to be
built on Fletcher Street, between
Huron and Washington Streets
facing Felch Park.
The theatre's stage will ccmbine
proscenium and thrust designs,
with either use being possible. Two
turntables will be included on the

commodate as many as 52 players
is also called for.
Maximum seating capacity in
the plan is 931 on the main floor
and 495 in a balcony. Capacity will
vary depending upon -whether the
orchestra pit is used and upon the
arrangement of the stage. None of
the seats will be further than 67
feet from the stage.
Backstage facilities will include
dressing rooms, a shop, storage
space for sets and costumes, a
separate rehearsal room and a
The Professional Theatre Pro-
gram is expected to have offices
on the first floor of the building.
The University Musical Society
and such student groups as the
University Players and MUSKET
are also reportedly interested in
using the proposed theatre.
The above model is of the proposed new theatre building, to be financed by a gift of over $1 million from former Regent Eugene Power
