That's how The Collegian, Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitutes' student newspaper, describes the LCI produc- tion of "Carousel." One might wonder if such erlhusiastic hyperbole as not just a trifle suspect. Hsp- pily. seeing "Carousel" first- hand alleys any sus- picions of partiality in stu- dent journalism. Monday's opening night performance of "Carousel" was indeed very good, vindi- cating the unabashed sup- port of the forthright staff of The Collegian. Playing to a full-capacity (and then some) crowd at the Yates Memorial Centre, the LCI musical was even able to capture the attention of those late-arrivals forced to stand or sit on the steps. Fellow students, parents and siblings of the youthful cast were soon caught up in the whirl of "Carousel's "melo- dramatic events. LARGE CAST While not the legendary "cast of "Carou- sel" employs an impressive- ly large number of students the more impressive in that the production in gen- eral was of a high calibre. Starting out a trifle stiffly in the initial scenes, the cast was able to create a con- vincing presentation of the Rogers-HammersteJn musi- cal. Ample evidence of the spell woven was the profu- sion of snuffles and stifled sobs heard during the poi- gnant final scenes of the play. Taken as a whole and judged in it's context as a student production LCI's "Carousel" contained very few.faults. One might have wished, at times, that the able orchestra under the di- rection of Jerry Pokarney bad sounded less ingly brassy. Or that one or two of the dancers did not al- most fall over when balanc- ing a pose on one leg. But such criticisms are minor. The students aad staff at LCI obviously labored long and hard over the produc- tion the effort was cer- tainly worthwhile, the result a gratiifying and polished musical. WELL CAST The principal and support- ing actors were well-cast with Valerie Depner and Carol Virtue both charming- ly convincing as heroines Julie Jordan and Carrie Pap- peridge. Mike Day imbued the taxing role of Billy Bige- low with a suitable bravado, bat at times seemed to be pushing his voice beyond normal limitations. Stewart Rood portrayed Jigger, the no-good who brings about Billy's down- fall, with an engagingly sin- ister air. You knew you should despise all Jigger represented, but as portray- ed by Mr. Rood, he's sort of a likeable villain. DONS JUMPSUIT Sherri McFadden played with mature proficiency her role as Nettie Fowler, Julie's cousin. Lori Ully as Louise, the daughter o f Billy and Julie was charming in her graceful ballet rendition of a troubled young girl. One has to comment on Mike Hoyt's brief but cour- ageous performance o f the Starkeeper: it takes a certain amount of plain gumption to don a baggy pa s t e 1 jumpsuit, sprinkle glitterdust in your hair and perch yourself on a ladder to "dust stars" in front of your peers! EXCELLENT SETS Adding to the professional- ism of Producer Director Maureen Mellings' vision of "Carousel" were excellent sets, lighting and special ef- fects, particularly during the last act. The costuming also was well coordinated. Almost all of the vocal num- bers, under the direction of Mrs. Dorothy MacPherson, were well-done. Garnering the most enthusiastic audi- ence response was the sai- lors dancing and singing' number, 'Blow High, Blow Low." For wet-eyed re- sponse, 'You'll Never Walk Alone' wen, hankies down. "Carousel' continues' to- night through Thursday at the Yates. Curtain time is 8 p.m. As The Collegian would say, "don't miss it."
