Genie Of The Bright Green Hair
Port rays Dual Role In 'Aladdin'

22 and 23 head size

Michigan Theatre Bldg.
523 East Liberty St.

"We're nothing unusual in our own
home Fifth Dimension," said A1-
adin's Genie 'todaybas he explained
hat the only problem is a social
-ne-acute because of the rave pre-
judice. "We are not to be confused
with the Hy-genies," he emphasized.)
The Genie with the bright red
hair, heir to the ring, and the Genie
with the bright green hair, heir to
.he lamp, have constant arguments
-bout the relative merits of their re-
spective color schemes. William Mills,
'Grad, who plays bothi the parts in
-he Children's Theatre musical "Al-
!adin," which opens today at 3:30a
o.m. at the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
.tre, expressed his extreme preference
for the green.
Green Hair Is Fancy
"Green hair is much more fancy,
and so much more suave, he declared.
The Genies argue, too, about their
parents, who were first cousins. It
hasn't been decided yet who was the
more magically powerful of the two.
Both Genies carry Alladin and his
friends through an exciting round of
musical adventure in the next play.
"The most difficult stunt of all,"
comented Genie the Red, "was in
carrying the Princess' castle from
persia to Africa. Africano, the villain,
cursed me for losing the whole first
floor on the way over; my only re-
gret is that he was on the second."
Neither Genie expressed a prefer-

ence for Africano. Greenie said, "I
dislike mostly his horribly crude table
manners. He is the most unsubtle
creature in the story." Africano was
not around to carry on the debate;
he expects to tell his tale at the,
Genies Have Harems
"Back in Fifth Dimension we have
a complete population of Genie's,,
including the all important Persian
harems," the Genies said in unison.
Both declared that they would rather
stay in Dimension than be forced to,
serve Africano again.
Red and Green, the Genies will both
be on the Lydia Mendelssohn stage
today and tomorrow in Richard Mc-
Kelvey's slightly musical version of
the children's favorite tale, from the
Arabian Nights. Two performances
will be given tomorrow, at 1:30 p.m.
and again at 3:30.I
Badminton Courts Open
The badminton courts in Barbour
Gymnasium are open for mixed play
