North Country Opera: A tradition returns
pacing. Be sure not to miss
the real live freakshow at the
end of side one.
The Unbecoming, a four
song EP, is the band's latest
and best release. "Mael-
strom" and "Black Nar-
cissus" are as degenerate as
the living hell these guys sing
about. "The Next Big Thing"
assaults you with anger and
"Stubborn Beast Flesh" puts
you on edge with its abrasive
chainsaw guitars. Suffice to
say this isn't the kind of stuff
you bring to the big volleyball
game down at the beach.
Born Without A Face sums
up their music best in
Freakshow's "Feed Your
Head:" Scream for mercy-
Beg for more.

North Country Opera is a
modern musical by local
playwright and songwriter, Jay
Stielstra. The story centers upon
the character of Michael, played
by Michael Smith, who falls in
love while backpacking in the U.
P. He leavs love, though, to make
his fortune as a stockbroker in
Grosse Pointe. Finally, after fif-
teen years have passed, Michael
realizes his mistake and returns
to Grand Marais to find the love
he left. North Country Opera is a
basic love story in a modern and
"The play is about making
choices about what's important in
your life," explains producer
Maureen Martin, who is cur -
rently attending the University
Business School. The production
provides students with an
opportunity to see a slice of
downtown Ann Arbor rather than
campus Ann Arbor," says Mar -

The company consists of many
people who came to Ann Arbor to

extensive musical performance
backgrounds in the Ann Arbor

former, Charlie Weaver has
even taken the show's message to
heart and now works full-time as
a river guide on the Manistee
River. Author Stielstra is
himself a native of northern
Michigan. Director Barbara
Stanley Kramer has combined
her New York theatrical ex -
perience with music director
Kevin Lynch's experience per-
