Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIOGE HERALD Wedneidoy, December 27, 1972 A review It's jolly good inn for the 7lh year Bv JO WATKI1FIEI.D Exit bcroone laughing pursued by Dame Mnirc-se Lovebce the cast of the Od in tr.a Shoe. at the Yates Memorial Centre ii '.vas the sever.th annual Christmas Pantomime written, direct- ed ar.d choreographed by Muriel and ihe cap- acity audience Tuesday night may vote it the best of all. The story Sir.e is slight but it's tenuous trail travels from the Shoe, aboard ship, to the bottom of the sea, to Car.dyland ar.d into the audier.ce cheers and boos turn greet heroes ar.d villains. SITEHB Acd leading all Li the su- perb Frank Feathersiose, a dame of many delights. Topped by a that looks like a Hong Kong reject, skins high to reveal Can- adierme tockey socks his joytul capers dominate the stage yet r.ever overpower his fellow Good performances come from all the principals: Kirk Jensen is crisply com- ic, Linda Johnson sweetly numeric, Alberta Azzarra a dandy pira'.e chief who renounces the skull and cross bones for a ;ob as as- sistant city manner. Brian King is i'n gcod voice is Nepiuiic and tare's a very nice cameo from David Mann as the Candyland gatekeeper. SURPRISE But the pleasantcst sur- prise is Brian V.'slker who shows a flair for light com- edy as the television err.cee who can only offer an all- expense paid (rip to Taber as the grand prize of his game sho'.v. The dance sequences are carried by youth and en- thusiasm and the Undersea ballet is especially effective Carol Jollifie Is obviously a dancer an exciting future and her partner, Mark Litc'r.field. later seen in tap routine, shows a tal- ent that requires only more energy and projection. Lighting by Ed Bayly is uniformly good, although the scenes undersea, espec- ially the ballet, could have used a hint of mystery. The costumes ot Gladys Carson are attractive and the sets by Ed Bayly and Lance Willis fresh and color- rful. OXE SMALL LAG The special effects, the ship in storm, the opening she'll, the sea monster all add excitement. Set changes, except for or.e small lag, are handled quickly. The musical accompani- ment, which must alsrays be attuned to the improvis- ation cf the players, is in the competent hands of Susan Young and Willie Mathis who never hesitat- ed to get into the act. Its all jolly good fun with the law of slander suspend- ed for the season as per- sonalities come in for their share of the gentle gibes.
