Play Production
By ViRiting D
The University of Michigan was
rated one of the finest schools for
training young dramatists by Whit-
ford Kane, guest director and male
lead in the opening Play Production
presentation "Excursion," in an in-
terview yesterday.
Mr. Kane pointed out that the
stock companies have become a thing
of the past and their work is now
being carried on largely by dramatic
schools in universities and colleges
throughout the country. He claimed
that the value of university work can
be estimated by the large number of
talent scouts sent out by Hollywood
producers. - "It would be advisable
for Broadway to follow this practice
and look for new talent among young
student dramatists."
Mr. Kane spoke highly of the choice
of "Excursion" for Play Production
students "for," he stated, "it will help
the students to loosen up through the
definite comic element of the play
and the freedom it allows to the stu-
dent to act naturally." He also spoke
of the desirability of the play be-
cause of the opportunity it gives for
a large number of students to appear.
In speaking of the talent found
among college students he indicated
that he often found these young ac-
tors much better than professionals.
Freshness, enthusiasm and sincerity
were among the attributes he found
in students. "These things make
work with students much more en-
joyable," he continued. "There isde-
cided refreshment in changing from
professional stage work to that of di-
rector of a student production," he
