Pleasant school Sunderland. By and Jeanette Ringheiser baskets Ful of Good wishes Welcome new North Shire teachers Paul Hurlburt Weston. George s. Kaufman and Moss Harts famous depression Era comedy a you can to take it with you a opened thursday night at the Weston playhouse. This play was masterminded strictly for laughs and no doubt was just what the doctor ordered for depression audiences. Even today however the play is frequently performed Weston is the third area theater to produce it this season with its cleverly contrived situations simple everyday humor and an entire cast of inherently funny characters a you can to take it with you remains a classic of its kind. Weston does a respectable lob in its rendition of the play though faults which have plagued Many Weston productions returned to afflict this one too. For one thing a play so full of fun and laughter Calls for spontaneity on the part of the performers but the Weston players take themselves too seriously and the result is a generally restrained performance. The lines Are faithfully rendered but somehow the spirit seems to be lacking. Another fault was self conscious acting by several performers. A a in a still me this is Only a part i am performing a the feeling is betrayed the minute these individuals walk on stage. The players should forget about what the audience thinks of them and try More to lose themselves in their roles. A of a Erich Forsythe As the Boyfriend whom Alice must introduce to her eccentric family was unconvincing in his proposal to the girl. If he loves Alice More than All the Rice in China either he a joking or there really Isnit much Rice in China. Forsythe will have to be the gushing excited Lover the Roll Calls for and less of a Gallant Prince charming at least in this scene if he is to fulfil the authors comic intention. The failure to exploit comic or poignantly dramatic situations is nothing new to Weston. It was repeated again thursday night. When Boris Kole Khov lands Alice s Boyfriend s father on the living room Rug he should tussle with him first and when Glenne Grant grabs hold of the Boyfriend to demonstrate dance step she should do it with verve. Some of the players failed adequately to convey the subtleties of their roles. Alice loves her family dearly even though they Embarrass her tremendously. This Cwi filet of feeling needs to be brought out. Olga the russian Duchess who works As a waitress in child a restaurant though fallen from her Royal status retains her regal Carriage but at the same time reveals Graceful humility and a warmth toward others a including Alice s unconventional no status seeking clan. These feelings too need to be More fully developed. _ of though nobody stole the show there were a number of Fine performances. Linda Licklider As the Drunken Gay Wellington performed convincingly Ina diff cult bit part. Fred Ewers and Deborah Cole As servants Donald and Rheba managed to Cap Ture the spirit of the play More than most of the others. Harlan Grant presided Over the clan in an accomplished fashion. And Jean Goodale and Paul Menzel developed their stereotyped roles As the sophisticated parents of Alices Boyfriend to a highly amusing degree.
