AfCI Production Of 'Twelfth Night'
To Resemble Original Shakespearean
University Theatre's summer
production of "Twelfth Night,"
which will be performed at Pine
wood Bowl July 27 and 28, will
be reminiscent in several respects
of the original productions of
Shakespearean plays during the
times of Queen Elizabeth.
The costuming aspect of the
show will present perhaps the most
obvious parallel to the early seven
teenth century stage. Director-designer
Harry Stiver has chosen
an Elizabethan wardrobe for his
cast, much like that probably worn
by Burbage and company at the
original Globe Playhouse in Lon
don. Moreover, the outdoor presenta
tion of "Twelfth Night" harks back
to the time of the Virgin Queen.
The audience which saw Sir Laur
ence Olivier's reproduction of
Elizabethan staging in "Henry V"
w ill remember that Shakespeare's
company acted on a stage which
was open to the sky.
Incidentally, the "Twelfth Night"
cast will move their rehearsals to
Pinewood Bowl Monday night. Be
cidos cnvine them the feel of the
large outdoor stage, the week of
rehearsals in the Bowl will pro
vide a chance to rehearse with
the possibility of an occassional
Rehearsals have been held for
the past three weeks in the non-
airconditioned Howell Memorial
Theatre, and the prevalence of
typical Nebraska summer weatner
plus the abundance of physical ac
tion in "Twelfth Night" have made
for hot work. The old theatrical
axiom about sacrificing for one's
art has been bandied about among
the cast members, but even the
satisfying feeling of self-sacrifice
cannot take the place of an elec
Another similarity to Elizabeth
an theatrical methods which the
'Twelfth Night" audience will not
ice is the continuity of the pro
duction. Shakespeare wrote his
plays to be produced without paus
es for act or scene breaks. Direc
tor Stiver has arranged the play
to be produced with only one inter
mission. Otherwise, the show will
be continuously onstage.
This continuity will be accomp
lished with the help of a novel set
designed by Stiver. It is made up
of four short walls mounted on
casters so that they can be moved
with a minimum of difficulty. Dur
ing the production, and in sight of
the audience, the cast itself will
shift these walls into several com
binations of positions; thus, onstage
action will never ;ease.
The movie "Take Me Out to the
Ball Game" will be the last free
movie shown at the Union during
summer sessions, according to Bob
Handy, Union activities director.
The show will be given July 28
at 7:30 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.

The former Nebraska superinte
ent of schools said the scholar
ships would not be awarded on a
categorical basis except in times
of national emergency.
Rather, the money will be grant
ed on the basis of financial need.
He said the government should not
dictate what subjects students
study in college by offering them
scholarships only in science or
other highly specialized fields.
He did say, however, that in a
national emergency such as the
United States is in now a certain
number of scholarships might be
given to science students to assure
supply of specially trained persons.
In general he said, "It is up to
the individual student to decide
whether he wants to become a sci
entist or a musician or artist instead."
