"A master of his craft" is what'
New York critics think of Whitford
Kane, who will return for his sixth
season as guest director to direct
"Hobson's Choice," in which he will
play.the title role of Hobson.
At present, Mr. Kane is appearing
with Katherine Cornell and Ray-
mond Massey in "Doctor's Dilemma"
which opened in Detroit in March and
has been playing to full houses in
lNew York City ever since.
He has also been associated as
teacher with the New York Theatre
Guild School, the Goodman Theatre
of Chicago, the University of Wash-
ington and the New York University..
His leading roles in professional pro-
ductions include "The White Steed,"
"Hamnlet," "Shoemaker's Holiday,"
"Excursion," "The Pigeon," "The Man
Who Killed Lincoln" and "The First

'Miuch Ado About Nothing'
Ann Arbor audiences raised much
ado, but not about nothing, with
their praises of the Play Production
presentation of William Shakespeare's
"Much Ado About Nothing" this
With memories of the critic and
playgoer ringing in their ears, virtual-
ly the same cast will present theF
popular comedy as the curtain-rais-
er of the Summer Repertory Play-
ers' Season, from July 1 to 5.
'George Washngton
"George Washington Slept Here" by
George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart,
one of the hits of the 1940-41 season
on Broadway, will be on the stage
here from Wednesday, July 9, through
Saturday, July 12.
The plot of the play revolves around
Newton Fuller, who, to the disgust
of his wife Annabella, bus an aban-
doned farmhouse somewhere in Bucks
County, Pennsylvania.
This amusing play is all told in the'
typical Kaufman-Hart wisecr ack
manner with a realistic touch.
'The Contrast' "
Charles H. Meredith, director of
the Dock Street Theatre in Charles-
ton, South Carolina, will direct "The
Contrast" by Royall S. Tyler, which;
will run from July 16 to 19.
The style of the play, written before
1800, copies the English drama of
the Restoration and Eighteenth Cen-
tury, but the theme of the chief
source of comedy is in the contrast

'The Little Foxes'
Out of the realms of Broadway
hits comes Lillian Hellman's "The
Little Foxes," to be given by the
Repertory Players from July 23 to 26.
Starring Tallulah Bankhead in the
1original production, the play was only
recently released for amateur produc-
tion. The drama is the one that re-
established Miss Bankhead as one of
the top ranking actresses of the cur-
rent stage.
'Storm Ot'er Patsy'
"Storm Over Patsy," an Anglo-Scot-
tish comedy by James Bridie, will
be presented from Wednesday, July
30, through Saturday, August 2.
The "Patsy" of the title is a mongrel
dog and the comedy lies in all the'
furor and trouble that the dog-tax
makes. A reporter's job on a news-
paper, two divorces, the imprisonment
of several people and the election of
a member of Parliament finally hinge
upon a lawsuit over the theft of the
dog by his rightful owner after he
has been impounded for failure to
pay the tax.
'Hobson's Choice'
Choice of many a modern playgoer
is the eternally popular "Hobson's
And so, for the choice of plays to
be given August 6 to 9, the Repertory
Players have chosen Harold Brig-
house's comedy of domestic difficul-
ties, "Hobson's Choice."
The play deals with the problem
of the beloved but bewildered Mr.
Hobson in marrying off his daugh-
'The Gondoliers'
The Michigan Repertory Players of
the Department of Speech will again
combine with the School of Music to
present "The Gondoliers," a musicall
by Gilbert and Sullivan.
"The Gondoliers" is probably the
gayest of all the Gilbert and Sulli-
van operas and also one of the most
difficult, as it requires a large number
of good principals as well as a large
dhorus of performers that can both
sing and dance. The talent which has
been available the past few summers
indicates that this production will
be possible this summer.

la, b Theatre'
Acting, Directing, Staging
Offered To Students
Experience in acting, directing and
the staging of plays will be offered
again to students here through the
continuance of the "Laboratory-The-
atre" program this summer.
This plan, which was inaugurated
last year under the direction of Hugh
Norton, will make use of the auditor-
iums of the two local high schools
in staging plays which do not require
the high-pressure work necessary for
the productions of the Michigan Rep-
ertory Players.
A new program will be initiated this
summer in the addition of a Second-
ary School Theatre with the specific
purpose of producing under high
school conditions plays which can be
used in high school.
Nancy Bowman, Director of Dra-
matics at Mt. Clemens High School,
will be the director of the new the-
atre, in addition to teaching a course
in High School Play Production which
will be integrated with the produc-
tions. She will direct two full-length
plays, the first of which will be pre-
sented on July 21 in the University
High School Auditorium. The cast
for this play will be chosen from sec-
ondary school students in and around
Ann Arbor.
Using a play suitable for high
schools but with a cast of University
students, Miss Bowman will present
a second play on August 12 as part of
the Annual Speech Conference spon-
sored by the Department of Speech.
