All the hard work, frustration and enjoyment involved in staging Eitrav. 55 in the Opera House in May, started last week when the casting meeting was held, musical directors appointed and script chosen by the selection committee.
This meeting was well attended.—about 100 came along—but not as well as last year. Many more are needed in all sections of the show. The meeting lacked a little purpose (there was no script), but Bill Sheat (producer) explained what everything was about. "If your mother won't let you do it for Heaven's sake tell us," he pleaded (referring to those dancing in the girl's chorus).
Those who had been in last year's production occupied themselves with fond reminiscences and fervent avowals that nothing could be as good as last year's show.
