Half the fun is the Absurdity of it All but the other half is solid Craft. This Dorset company is a Fine one with some delightful performers at work. Already some very Fine and highly varied work has been shown by Richard Savoy David Siever Phyllis Nierendorf Mary Carter and Warren Knowlton.

Elan Hicks Domenic Pallaria Harold bub Hicks Lee Sparks by Paul Hurlburt Weston a Campus sweethearts and sons of alumni gambled together at the Weston playhouse last night in a Jerome Kern musical that persuasively re creates the Gai ties that went along with College in the Good old Days. A leave it to Jane a which opened the 29th season at Weston was one of the earliest attempts at american musical comedy and perhaps the first to use the Campus scene As its setting. In the 1917 play Pioneer Kern with Guy Bolton and . Wodehouse who wrote Book and lyrics intended merely to fuse an innocent in comedy of american life with tunes that Bounce and Sway to a Bright Tempo. Weston did not betray these intentions last night for it surely did not exceed them. But on the other hand the players were not quite satisfying in their undeniably conscientious attempt to fulfil the ambitions of playwright poet and composer. If the songs swayed a and not simply of their own Accord for they were indeed Well rendered a the dialogue unfortunately was not up to Par. With few exceptions the entire company was in a race from curtain time to curtain Call.

So wound up was the audience in the movement it could scarcely have been expected to perceive the blossoming Romance Between stub and Bessie until their rather Blunt Hatch up in the end. The players were too anxious to account Well of themselves individually and did not jell As a group. If they had simply relaxed a bit and tried living together a leave it to Jane after All is not slapstick but a comedy of life they would have discovered that living can be a vibrant affair without Rushing about. Thanks to piano accompanist William Deveau who also was musical director the orchestra was not in the least big missed. The piano virtuoso succeeded in creating All kinds of sentiments and shades at the keyboard that provided a Fine complement to some equally Fine singing. Fredericka Fuller As the captivating daughter of the College president was perhaps most in tune with Kern a singular style but her Lover football Champion James Mitchell also performed admirably. Not Only was their singing full of ease and expression but their acting displayed a much appreciated discrimination in tone and gesture. Lee Sparks who unlike Many Sinatra say no Hollywood up a Frank Sinatra says he definitely will not play the James Bond role in a Casino royales despite rumours to the contrary. Of the others was not a special import for the performance deserves recognition for an attractive voice and delivery As a Singer and a competent transformation of character Midway in the play. Another Fine Singer perhaps most sensitive to the response of the audience was Christina Fadala the veritable a miss Atwater College of 1917�?� despite her Tomboy role. Disappointing was Elizabeth Davison As Flora Wiggins the boy crazy daughter of the town Boardinghouse keeper. As somebody else miss Davison would have been one of the stars but she seemed miscast for the role. No Adverse comments should be made about her singing but As a woman she was much too Beautiful to be boy crazy and too unconcern ugly refined to be the daughter of the town boarding housekeeper. We will look Forward to better things of miss Davison in the future. While a leave it to Jane is one of Kern a earliest and least known plays its songs yet have All the magic of the familiar tunes from audiences will particularly enjoy a the sirens song a rendered by Jane Bessie and the girls they will be intrigued with the emphatic a there it is again a and a sir Galahad and the a football song should not fall to Rouse them. And if the Weston players manage to slow Down a bit in performances tonight saturday and sunday audiences will discover that the oldest playhouse in the area is indeed off to another Good Start in a season of Light comedies and other dramatic offerings.
