'YEOMEN OF THE GUARD':
Tower of London an Cast Crowd Set
Kaplan Will Discuss
NLRB Attorney To Speak Here on
Board Operations Under Labor Laws
It's a big order-but the pro-
ducers of "Yeomen of the Guard"
are going to put the Tower of
London and a cast of 75 all on the
stage of Pattengill Auditorium.
It won't be the real tower, it's
true. But when the curtain rises
on the Gilbert and Sullivan So-
ciety's newest production Dec. 7,

CONSTRUCTION workers have
planned out just how the auditori-
um's small stage will look, down
to the last hinge and lock. They
have even built a small scale rep-
lica of the set and tried out vari-
ous lighting effects on it.
To find out exactly what
buildings looked like back in the
olden days in which the opera
is set, they leafed through dusty
books and library files.
That problem conquered, they
still had to figure out how to make
the Tower look sufficiently mas-
sive without crowding the large
cast right off the stage.

AND THE GAY MEXICO OF TODAY
MASONIC TEMPLE AUDITORIUM
WITH THE MODEL of the set
to guide them, the stars of the
opera were able to figure out their
positions on the stage. And the
chief electrician could work out
his tricky lighting effects ahead
The situation is now pretty
well under control, thanks to
weeks of long, hard work.
Before the construction workers
even got started on their project,
they found themselves facing
problems which the producers of
the two earlier Gilbert and Sulli-
van successes didn't have to worry

"YEOMEN OF THE Guard" calls
for a more difficult set artistically
than either "The Mikado" or "H.
The opera isn't all bright and
sunny. Tragic and comic themes
interlock-so the crew, on a lim-
ited budget had to create a set

The problems associated with
the construction and design of
the sets have challenged the in-

is supervising design and construc-
tion of the sets.

The English epic, sole movie ever
made by the Theatre Guild, stars
Laurence Olivier as the British
king whose leadership on the bat-
tlefield raised him to the position
of a national hero.
FILMED in technicolor, the
movie adheres closely to the orig-
inal Shakespearean text, with the
opening scene set in the renowned
Globe Theatre of the 1600's.
Oliver, who has adapted in
several American films, also pro-
duced and directed 'Henry V,"
which covers the English inva-
sion of France, the battle of
Agincourt and the king's court-
ship of Princess Kate.
The movie was first shown in
Ann Arbor last fall. Popular de-
mand for a return engagement
moved the speech department to
book the film for presentation in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
where accoustical difficulties
which arose in the first showing
will be eliminated.

dents and faculty members and
?heir families. Tickets for the pre-
sentations, at 8 p.m. tomorrow
