Opens Drama 'Laboratory7 IOWA CITY - A new drama “laboratory” program has been started at the* University of Iowa to help students perfect their theater skills. The Matinee and Headers Theaters give playwrights, directors and actors a chance to try out new ideas, techniques and plays which interest them. The theater programs may be the only “labs” on the U. of I. campus which encourage audiences and audience participation. At. the Matinee Theater programs, students present a scene or a group of scenes from a play, with costumes and stage settings. At the Readers Theater, a group of actors presents a reading of an original script by a ll. of I. student, under the direction of the playwright. The programs are informal — at one performance the audience sat on the floor and was served popcorn, in keeping with the atmosphere of the play. Sessions are free, and the public is invited to attend. The theaters are held on Fridays at 3:30 p.m., with additional performances scheduled on other weekday afternoons, in the Old Costume Shop Theater on the lower level of University Theater. Following tile programs, the performers and audience adjourn to the Green room of the theater to discuss the performance. Cosmo Catalano, associate professor of speech and dramatic art, leads the Matinee Theater discussions. Oscar Brownstein, associate professor and director of the Playwrights workshop, conducts the discussion of the new scripts presented in Readers Theater. The workshop initiated the program on a limited basis last year. Several original plays presented at the U. of I. last year began as Readers Theater presentations, including John O’Keefe’s “Chamber Piece”. which was produced at University theater.

The directors of the Matinee Theater plays are usually first- or second-year students in the three-year MFA degree program, Coff says. Directing the plays gives them additional experience for the time when they will direct a Studio or University Theater production. Kuch directing student is given the opportunity to present at least two Matinee Theater programs during the year. The scripts presented in Headers Theater arc still in various stages of writing or re-writing, in preparation for the time when they also may receive a full-scale production at the U. of I. theaters. Tho actors for the performances are selected at auditions for other theater productions or from acting classes. The performances provide acting students with additional experience, Goff says, beyond that provided in the larger theater productions.
