OFF THE CUFF
UNION OPERA By Virginia Robertson
1p0 OFTEN, ideas and purposes
become mired in the mud
of tradition. -
Too often, people become set in
their ways and demand adherence
to a project which has lost its
original purpose and usefulness.
Too often, traditions are re-
garded with awe and wonder, as
something great and untouchable.
And so, when change occurs, a
wail of protest usually arises from
those who would place tradition
in itself over its purpose.
Something has recently been
dropped from Michigan tradition.
The tradition was one of having
a lot of brave and awkward-look-
ing males shave their legs, put on
feminine skirts and voices, and
get up on a stage to kick up their'
heels for an audience of friends,
relatives and acquaintances.
Of course, such a spectacle can
be humorous-for the first time
you see it. But it's a humor of1
laughing at the participants,
rather than with them or at their;
jokes. People got tired of this kind
of humor and their feelings were
reflected in box office returns.-
And thtis, Union officials, con-;
cerned about the financial state+
of Union Opera, decided to dis-
continue the tradition. Unlike the
"clingers-to-traditions," they real-
ized people were tired of the all-
made burlesque type of produc-
tion and decided to do something
A NEW all-campus coed show
has been created and will give
its premier performance next fall.
The show itself is not related to
the previous Union Opera, except
that it is Union-sponsored. It is
being called the "Union Coed
Show", until a new and more spec-
ific name is selected. Both men
and women are serving on the
planning committees and will be
taking part in the production next
Already, greater interest than
ever before, has been shown by,
University men and women who
would like to take part in the
new show, according to General
Chairman Don Medalle.
As for whether the show will
be successful in the financial tot-
alings, one can only speculate until
next fall, when the tickets sold
are actually counted up.
But it's in the books now. Union
Opera has become a memory,
along with all the other memories
of the University's discarded tra-
ditions, but that's as it should be
when something loses its purpose.
