"Aw, Nuts," the firt All-Campus
Revue, sponsored by Mimes, will be
presented at 8:15 o'clock every
night next week in the Mimes
theatre. A matinee performance
will also be given Saturday after-
Started Work This Fall.
The idea of an All-Campus Revue
was first conceived when the opera
was discontinued last year by the
Union board of directors. The leas-
ing of the Mimes theatre to the
speech department for the use of
Play Production forced the group
to hold reeharsals in the League
and Union buildings. Nevertheless,
calls for tryouts were issued several
weeks ago, after all material had
been submitted, and, although there
was no trip to offer as a reward for
the work, a large number of tryouts
turned up.
This production is more in the
nature of an experiment than a
continuation of the regular opera.
If it is a success, the affair will
be staged annually. No effort, how-
ever, has been spared to make the
production a success. Rehearsals
and chorus drills have been held
day and night, and the first pre-
sentation will be a finished produc-
The show will consist of two acts,
cach one containing nine numbers
consisting of short skits, feature
song and dance numbers, and a
movie. The skits pertain to campus
matters only, and among the num-
bers are some on The Daily, the
football ticket situation, the cam-
pus dramatic situation, the library
and radio.
Show Directed by Students.
Songs, music and lyrics, have
been written by students, and the
dancers have worked out their own
routines specialty numbers. All
direction, casting and managing
has been undertaken by the stud-
ents themselves, in an effort to
remedy the defects which alumni
attributed to the show, namely that
there was not enough student tal-
ent represented. The designing of
stage sets and costumes has also
been undertaken by the students
Reservations and mail applica-
tions for tickets may be made at
