Stage settings, designed by 'Miss

see action taking place at the same
time both inside and outside the
Brinker cottage. The house, placed
at nearly one side of the stage, will
be complete with a roof and three
walls, the fourth side open to the
The rest of the stage will represent
the Grand Canal with snow banks
and a giant windmill, turning in the
background. Warm lighting within
the house and cold blue lights outside
will accentuate the difference in the
settings. Against this will be the
brilliant and varied colored costumes
of the cast.
Karl Klauser will perform in the
role of Hans Brinker assisted by Jean
Greenwald, '37, as Gretal, and Bar-
bara Strand, '37, as Dame Brinker.
