Opryland
auditions
draw show
biz hopef ds

By JEFFREY MILLER
A short, stout woman, wearing a
bright red dress with glittering silver
trim, stepped on stage carrying an um-
brella. The woman and her partner
began an unpolished dance routine as a
record player spouted "Singing in the
Rain." After a few minutes of twirls,
steps and sashays, the music came to
an abrupt halt.
"Next!" shouted an auditioner.
THE SCENE took place at the
Michigan Union's Assembly 1I11 last
Monday where nearly 80 performers
were auditioning for a summer job at
Opryland in Nashville. The participants
included guitarists, singers; dancers,
impersonators, and a marimba player.

The Ann Arbor auditions were part of
a 25-city search for musical talent to fill
350 available summer spots.
While many performers came
believing the Opryland auditions might
be their "big chance," most restrained
their enthusiasm. "We want to see how
well we do. It would be neat to go to
Nashville," said one performer who
stood with his partner, both anxiously
awaiting their try-out.
JOHN ZAMBROWSKI, a junior at
Eastern Michigan University who
worked at Opryland last summer, was
even more excited about his future in
the world of music. "I plan to change
my last name to Lindsay," he said.
At. the front of the room the group of
auditioners were listening to a version

of "What I Did for Love." The singer
was cut off a few verses into his next
number, a Billy Joel song. Cynthia
Peay, the audition staff's receptionist,
suddenly started laughing,. explaining
that she had already heard dozens of
renditions of "What I Did For Love" on
the audition tour.
Although Peay is currently employed
as a receptionist she too dreams of
stardom and hopes to return to perfor-
ming next year: "This is a stepping
stone, a great way to get to Broadway,"
she said.
DAN LIDSTER, a graduate student
in the school of music, also viewed the
Opryland auditions as an excellent way
to get a musical career off the ground..

Lidster, a marimba player, said the
main reason he was auditioning was to
get the experience and exposure
playing before audiences.
While many of those trying out at the
Union had grandiose visions for the
future, Bob Whittaker, director of live
entertainment at Opryland, was a bit
more realistic. "The only thing we
promise them is a check at the end of
the week that won't bounce," he said.
Whittaker said he is looking for per-
formers with that "special magic." But
he quickly added: "We hope to see one
person a year that has 'it.'
Last year, Whittaker recalls, a
Russian Cossack dancer performed to
"Home on the Range.'}

An all-star cast (including DANIELLE DARRIEUX, CLAUDE DAUPHIN, SIMONE
SIMON and JEAN GABIN) are featured in this production of three Maupassant
tales, directed with scintillating brio by the roughishly ironic Max Ophuls.
This is the kind of film that made France famous for racy, sophisticated

CINCINNATI (AP)-Some of the
survivors of the rock concert stampede
that killed 11 people last week still can-
not eat or sleep because of feelings of
terror and guilt, disaster counselors
say.
"People that age think they're going
to live forever," said Dr. Sandra Um-
benhauer, coordinator for a psychiatric
team that provides free counseling for
survivors and families of disaster vic-
tims.
"WHEN THEY SEE people their own
age killed, it has a profound effect," she
said last week. "It really shakes them
to the core."
She said the survivors might ex-
perience "nightmares or anxiety-not
being able to sit still, trouble concen-
trating, trouble sleeping, not being able
to fall asleep or waking up very early in
the morning, gut ache, diarrhea-the
whole body reacting to the stress they
are going through."
The team of psychiatrists and
psychologists from the University of
Cincinnati has counseled victims of
tornados, floods and other disasters. Its
largest project was ,working with
families of some of the 165 people who
died in the Beverly Hills Supper Club
fire two and one-half years ago.
"SOME OF THE reactions, some of
the distresses, seem to be similar-the
feelings of disaster, helplessness and
guilt," Umbenhauer said. The team is
providing "a lot of the same services
on a smaller scale."
The 11 were killed last Monday when

a crowd of rock fans hoping to get seats
to a concert by The Who began surging
toward the doors of Riverfront
Coliseum, pressing on those nearest the
doors. A preliminary report said the
victims were asphyxiated.
A colleague, Dr. Jack Lindy, said that
helping survivors cope with a disaster
experience is a "many month
process."
"ACCEPTANCE IS weeks and mon-
ths down the road. Right now, they have
to have a climate in which they can ex-
press their feelings-rage, indignation,
blame, terror. They need somebody to
listen.
"How long it takes to cope depends on
the specific disaster. It depends on the
environment people come home to and
it depends on a number of variables we
don't pretend to know."
Umbenhauer said some of the young
people caught up in the pushing and
shoving at the coliseum "might find
themselves quite frightened when
they're in a crowd again.
"This is a pretty overwhelming
feeling. Feeling you're going to die,
being side by side with someone,
especially a loved one who died, and not
being able to stop the press of the
crowd. Or maybe they stepped on
someone and-didn't know it."
Lindy said the team has observed
that "people who help at the time of the
tragedy do better" in coping with the
disaster. But he said the deaths. also
have resulted in "a lot of kids in very
precarious mental situations."
