CAP NIGHT PLANS
Mediums and Eight Other Performers
Ehiijmated at First
BLACK FRIAR'S PRODUCTION
INCITES PLAYERS TO ACTION
Entire Performance With Exception of
Orchestra Will Be Staged
Men in the medium chorus of "Con-
trarie Mary," as well as eight other
chorusmen, will not make the trip to
Chicago with the Union opera May 24.
The cuts were made last night at the
first rehearsal held in preparation for
the Chicago performance.
A second practice has been called for
7:00 o'clock this evening, at the Union,
at which time all men who were una-
ble to be present last night on account
of the Choral Union- rehearsal will be
required to be in attendance.The mem-
bers of the cast and chorus will re-
hearse practically the entire perform-
ance, but the orchestra will be given
a respite in preparation for next
week's extended rehearsals.
Bert St. John, director of the opera,
conducted last night's practice session,
and found his proteges nearly as pro-
ficient as they were two months ago.
A special effort will be made to polish
the performance into creditable form,
because the Michigan show will take
place in Chicago only two weeks after
the Black Friar's production, and the
management desires to outdo the Win-
dy City thespians.
