The last Children's Theeatre pro-
duction of the season, an operetta
adaptation of Anderson's tale, "The
Ugly Duckling," opened at 3:45 p.m.
yesterday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre. Richard McKelvey, Grad.,
directed and the general chairman
was Roberta Chissus, '39, chairman
of the League theatre arts commit-
The 350 who attended succeeded in
providing as much interest for adults
as the play itself according to offi-
cials. In addition to the general col-
orful note they provide, the audience,
in ratio of ten children to one adult,
always adds incidents of its own.
There are the quarts of nickels and
pennies that are presented for tickets;
there are the discussions between
adults and their smaller companions
about whether the tickets shall be
front or rear. (They invariably con-
promise on the front row!) There are
the tickets presented after weeks in
a youngster's pocket, leaving some
doubt about their identity as tickets.
Two other performances will be
given at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. today
in the Mendelssohn Theatre.
