O~"fpera Plans
Board Votes $100
Prize for Best Script
Plans for hte revival of the Un-
ion Opera took their first step
toward reality this week, with the
establishment of a prize contest
to locate a top notch script from
which the show can be produced.
A prize of $100 has been voted
by the Board of Directors of the
Union for any script submitted
before Sept. 1, 1947 which in the
opinion of the judges is suitable
for production and is in keep-
ing with the high standard of en-
tertainment set by Union Operas
of the past.
All those interested in entering
a script in the contest must write
to Harry Skinner, 556 S. State St.
before June 5 to receive complete
contest rules..
The judges of the contest will
be four faculty members, and their
decision will be final. All scripts
become the property of the Union,
and it is clearly stipulated that
the judges may withold the
awarding of any prize if they feel
that none of the material sub-
mitted is of acceptable quality.
A good script should be of a
musical comedy variety, lasting
about two hours. While planning
a plot, contestants should leave
openings for several musical num-
bers with chorus routines.
Song lyrics may be included
with scripts, but they are not ne-
cessary. Although the opera will
have an all-male cast, there
should be women's parts written
into the script.
