"Out of the Frying pan," the
University Summer Theater's only
1952 production, enjoyed three
-lights of seldom-unsurpassed pop
ularity for a show of its type.
A strictly amateur produc
tion, even to the extent of pe
ine admission-free, IU cast, un
der the direction of John Tolch,
made it seem far from amateur.
The ttory centered around six
young people three men end
three women, all unmarried ex
cept one secretly married couple
who are aspiring thearical per
sonnel and who, because of a lack
of funds, arc forced to share the
nic apartment. One of their
number, Dottie Coburn, is the
daughter of a politician, and is
thc only one who has a sufficient
source of money to finance the
Tbeir apartment is located
just above that of a successful
Broadway producer, and most
of their efforts are put toward
attempting to persuade the pro
ducer to hire and ue them in
hi forthcoming road show.
Complications arise when Muriel
Fofter, Dottie's cousin, arrives on
the scene, and threatens to tell
Dottie's father about what is go
ing on. All turns out well in the
end, of course, with the producer's
hiring of the six, and with every
one falling in love and a happy
life ever ffter In store for every
one, typical of theatrical comedies.
