MSC Theme
Residents of Helen Newberr3
and Taylor House are neglecting
textbooks and lecture notes these
days for rehearsals of their pro-
duction of "M.S.C. Pinafore,'
which will be presented as part of
the first Skit Night program at
8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in
Hill Auditorium.
Using music from Gilbert and
Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinafore," the
group has written new lyrics to
many of the songs.
In the first act of the skit, action
pokes fun at many of the stereo-
types of Michigan State College
students. After a transition song,
the scene changes to the Univer-
sity, where campus traditions and
student life here also receive a
"gentle riding,"
All the action in the first act
takes place inside a "typical"
M.S.C. classroom, a cow barn,
where students have gathered
t for a cow-psychology class.
The steps of Angell Hall, a fav-
orite gathering spot for 'U' stu-
dents, sets the scene in the sec-
ond act.
Leading roles in the show will
be sung by Dawn Waldron, Esther
McGlothin, Bob Lindsley, Tom
Lester and Malcolm Shatz.
Ed Weiner, portraying a guest
lecturer at M.S.C. and Pete Mc-
Carthy, taking the part of a Uni-
versity professor will handle the
main speaking roles.
A chorus of approximately 30
men and women will also be
featured.
Frank Johnston is director of
the production.
"M.S.C. Pinafore' will be one
of six skits to be presented as part
of the Skit Night program, which
is sponsored by the Union and the
Women's Athletic Association as
part of their new Spring Weekend
project.
Victor-Vaughan -Delta Upsilon,
Kappa Alpha Theta-Theta Xi and
Gamma Phi Beta-Sigma Phi Ep-
silon will also take part in the
program.
Other groups presenting skits
will be Martha Cook-Zeta Beta
Tau and Henderson House-Delta
Sigma Phi.
Reserved seats for the program
will be on sale from 1 to 4 p.m.
daily until Friday in the Admin-
istration Building. All reserved
seats, priced at 75 cents, are lo-
cated on the first floor of the
Auditorium.
Tickets co-chairmen Nan Rein
f and Tom Leopold have announced
that members of houses wishing
to sit in block sections should de-
termine how many tickets they
will need and buy them at one
time.
General admission tickets, also
priced at 75 cents, will go on sale
Monday at booths located in Ma-
son Hall anc the League.
All proceeds from the show will
be donated to charity. The Union
will present its share of the pro-
ceeds to the national Damon Run-
yon Cancer Fund, while the WAA
will donate its part of the profits
to the Alice Crocker Lloyd Re-
search Fund, also dealing with
cancer research.
