"It's a particular challenge,"
said Beth-Sheva Laikin describ-
ing her role of Hedda in Ibsen's
drama, "Hedda Gabler" currently'
appearing at the Dramatic Arts
Tall, slim Miss Laikin finds por-
traying Ibsen's character on stage
"a wonderful experience in under-

gy major," the hazel-eyed bru-
nette recalled.
She became actively interested
in drama in her junior year al-
though she "had always been fas-
cinated by the theatre but some-
how couldn't picture herself 'back
of the footlights.'"
"I was scared to,.death the first
time I Appeared in a play," Miss
Laikin laughed. But her self con-
fidence soon grew, and by her sen-
ior year she was holding leading
roles in Speech Department plays.
National Theatre Conference
After graduation the aspiring
young actress auditioned for a
place in the National Theatre
Conference. Made up of students
from ten universities, the Confer-
ence aimed to mix drama with
work on a master's degree.
She received a fellowship and
played a, role in a road tour of
"The Late Christopher Bean."
The following year saw her in
New York at New York University
studying for a Master of Dramatic
Arts in the School of Education.
The East held her attention for
a while. "Like every young actress
I wanted a creek at the profes-
sional theatre."
But also like so many aspirants,
Miss Laikin didn't get the right
"breaks," so she spent much of
her time playing leading roles for
radio classical plays.
Away from New York, the young
actress , appearea in Norwich,
Conn., with Edward Arnold as

Stella Springer in "The Apple of
My Eye." She had further acting
experience with Kay Francis in
"Goodbye My Fancy."
The vivacious actress also work-
ed as technical assistant for sev-
eral Broadway shows. She further
varied her career by doing free
lance work in Detroit, teaching and
engaging in social work.
Miss Laikin returned to Ann Ar-
bor for the year 1952-3 to play
the leading role in all plays pre-
sented by the Detroit Arts Thea-
Appeared at World Stage
She also appeared in perform-
ances at the World Stage in De-

DAC Star Finds Ibsen Role 'Challenging'

troit before coming back to Ann
Arbor and the DAC, -at the invi-
tation of director Joseph Gisterak
to play in "Hedda Gabler."
Asked what roles she prefers,
Miss Laikin replied promptly, "I
guess any role you are working
at the moment is special."
She grinned and added, "I'll ad-
mit I've always been fascinated
by Pirandello, Ibsen and Williams."
Her eyes sparkled as . she ex-
plained why playing the same role
night after night doesn't become
boring. "With every perform-
ance, there's always something
new-some added insight into the
character you're playing."
