Music And Drama
A Review By Kathryn Sayre
The old proverb, as mad as a March
Hare, was amusingly and divertingly
presented as the theme for the light
comedy of the present Rockford
players production. The play furnish-
ed only a vehicle for the finished act-
ing which the company showed in the
performance Thursday night. Its
farcical situations like the temptation
scene and incidentally the climactic
scene furnished the company an op-
portunity to exercise their acting
abilities. Throughout the perform-
ance the interest was in the. per-
sonalities of the various members of
the company-in contrast to what has
been the previous situation in which
the actors and actresses as them-
selves, were lost in the roles they
played. Of course the company should
not have drawn attention to itself but
perhaps it was because the play did
not present intensive characters.
Besides many seemed to fascinate by
their personalities and attractiveness,
alone, so that made quite an inter-

Robert Henderson with the most
distinctive role of the performance
portrayed one of the March Hares
with an interpretation which might
certainly be termed alive. He put
zest in the temperamental Goeffrey
whose house was i a continuous up-
set because of his individual notions,
his carelessness to his fiancee, and
his nonchalant manner toward all
that worried others. Mr. Henderson
made the short sighted characterwho
lured women unconsciously by his
stirring appeal a really fine piece of
acting. His inflections and the em-
phasis of his sentences he put in the
right places, so that he played his
part of the full. The role which Mr.
Henderson had was written by a play-4
wright who understood the psycholo-
gy of an abnormal person who might
have insanity to a slight degree. The
author, Harry Wagstaff Gribble, made
Geoffrey rabid on the question that
everyone was against him. The
whole was rollicking with good fun,
too, as well as being to some degree
true of this peculiarly minded per-
Miss Marvel Garnsey's role as the
"mistress of equilibrium" was one of
the major parts of the performance
but she did not receive from the audi-
ence quite what the lines she had,
deserved in many cases. This was
probably not the fault of the audi-
enee, for they seemed a very respon-
sive group throughout the evening
and especially during the window
shade scene in which Paul Stephen-
son, the butler, had such a difficult
time lowering the curtain that both
the audience and he laughed. Miss
Garnsey's part was well acted during
most scenes and she commanded a
poise which was appropriate to the
age of Mrs. Janet Rodney whom she
interpreted. Her words were en-
unciated clearly and precisely as were
those of all the rest of the company,
so that every remark was under-
stood by the audience and the pro-
(uction had the appearance of being
KAtherine Wick Kelly in the role
of another March Hare radiated en-
tertainment thru her facial expres-
sirns as' well as her humorous lines,
for she made everyone laugh at the
way she said her funny ideas and no-
tions. Claudia, the overbalanced
. young woman who doted affection-
ately upon Geoffrey, furnished som~e-
thing for Miss Kelly, light in its en-
tertainment and attractive as a fea-
ture for her exploitation. A number
of the play's best lines were for her
execuion and in accordance with her{
past reputation here E.s a thorough
and good actress she rea. them well.
The essence of the sophisticated farce
was shown in her reading of the
l oei, y from the book. She did this
mater al, which might easily have
been spoiled or boring by someone
else, with the countenanra and ex-
uression of one as sincere and seri-
ous as the world possessed. Her man-
ner of gazing intently with head
forward and eyes bulging at Goeffrey'
pointed out the fact that the char-
acter, Claudia, truly felt, as she said
that he had a real "capacity for love."
The rest of the cast made a smooth-
running background for the majors
already mentioned. Lillian Bronson,
the splendid Roxie Hart of Chicago,
fell into a minor role this week like
a veteran and Paul Stephenson, the
stern and precise Oliver.
Roman Bohnen and Elberta Trow-,
bridge, deserve more credit than the
couple just mentioned. Maybe that
was because they were in the lime-
light more than the previously dis-
cussed pair. Let it be suffiient to

say, however, that their roles appear-
ed to be neither overacted nor lacking
