Robert Henderson who has just com-
pleted a five months' season at the
Bonstelle Civic Theatre in Detroit.
The Dramatic Season this year will
open Monday evening, May 22, im-
mediately following the close of the
May Festival, and will continue for
four and a half weeks through Wed-
nesday evening, June 21. The season
has been curtailed this year of the
final three days in the last week.
Instead, the summer season of the
Play Production department will
open a week in advance, its sea-
son commencing on Thursday eve-
ning, June 22.
As in past years, the Dramatic
Season at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre will present foremost artists
of the New York stage, both in the
outstanding successes now running
on Broadway and in distinguished
classic revivals. The Dramatic Sea-I

tivals in Europe, foregathers at Ann

The Dramatic Season, as was the
