CATHOLIC CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS STRATFORD, Ont. (CP) Casting, design, and other preparations for the 1975 Stratford Festival are further advanced than ever before for a new 'season, says William Hutt, director of the Festival Theatre stage. Hutt, who starred in last season's long-run production of Moliere's The Imaginary Invalid, will direct George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, starring Pat Galloway. It is the festival's first venture into the works of the Irish playwright on the main stage. Robin Phillips.'new artistic director of the festival, is di- recting two productions by Shakespeare for the Avon fheatre-The Comedy of Errors and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. He will direct Shakespeare's Measure Measure and Bertold recht's Trumpets and rums for. the Festival Theatre. David Jones will direct Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in the Festival Theatre and John Wood will direct Arthur Miller's The Crucible later in the season at the Avon. The festival opens this year on June 9 with Saint Joan, fol- lowed by Twelfth Night June 10 and Measure for Measure June 11. The Comedy of Errors and The Two Gentlemen of Verona, which go on tour starting Feb. 10 in Winnipeg, will move into the Avon June 10 and 11 without formal first-night openings. Brian Bedford, a Tony. Award-winning actor who has played at Shakespeare festivals in Stratford-upon- Avon and Stratford, Conn., is the principal acting import of the season. He will .play Angelo in Measure for Measure, Malvblio in Twelfth Night and Captain Plume in Trumpets and Drums. Leading Canadian players joining the company this season are Jackie Burroughs and Tom Kneebone. Joan Waterfield's.. Entertainment eye Marilyn Munroe topic of musical Priceless art collection on display at gallery OTTAWA (CP) A priceless collection of 250 prints and drawings by the great Spanish artist Francisco Goya has come to the National Gallery for a month display. Assembled by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, where they were seen last fall, the works have been gathered from such world-famous collections as the Prado Museum and the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid, the British Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB REGULAR DANCE Sat., Jan. 25th p.m. Music by "FIORINO" (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" Members and Invited Guests Only! After the hearse comes the bandwagon. It was thus following the deaths of Jean Harlow and Judy Garland. And so it is as grimy fingers reach past the grave to the pathetic and brief life of Marilyn Monroe. To quickie films and dull documentaries; to something horrendous call- ed The Sex Symbol with Con- nie Stevens trying to prove herself an actress; to a book by Norman Mailer whose literary tongue explores for a morsel from a meal already masticated. So what is new? Hey Marilyn, that's what, an original musical biography (so it says) based on the life, loves and death of the late star. This is Toronto composer Cliff Jones' second musical commissioned by CBC Radio; his first a pop version of Hamlet later transposed to the stage as Kronborg: 1582 and scheduled for Broadway opening in the fall. The musical question that should be asked is Why Marilyn? Not to condemn the piece scheduled for Sunday February 16 unheard. Hopefully it will hit between the crummy and the classy confusion of Arthur Miller and his ringside view in After The Fall. But when will enough be enough and Marilyn Monroe allowed her final rest? More about Miller and The Crucible which must rank se- cond only to his finest play Death of A Salesman. Both plays stress the cost of personal integrity, the price paid for having it, and losing it. Based on the trials for witchcraft in Sgiem it was first produced in 1953 and acclaimed a "political play" Dale Correction Winter Games Saturday, February Featuring the LETHBRIDGE RIG RAND (Music of the'40's) at the EL RANCHO CONVENTION CENTRE Buffet: p.m. Dancing: p.m. Refreshments Available Per Person Ticket!

Phone 329-3151 attacking the witch hunting of Senator Joe McCarthy. This is surely too narrow an interpretation since the play confronts the universal ques- tion of conscience versus tyranny. And the price to be paid offers only the choice between loss of life and the death of the soul. Miller wrote The Crucible with fervour and the Playgoers are approaching their forthcoming production with an enthusiasm that promises realization on stage of one of the finest statements of moral courage. Auditions are scheduled for February 3, 4 and 5 and all are welcomed to attend. For the "remember when" bunch there's good news from Great Falls in the continuing recovery of Ruby Keeler. Once wife to Al Jolson, Miss Keeler made her film debut in 1933 in 42nd Street. It was her who initiated the classic and since camped up moment, when the little chorus girl goes on stage for the star and taps her way to instant success. She. was always Dick Powell's girl, while wisecracking Joan Blondell teamed up with Jimmy Cagney all to great spec- tacular production numbers by Busby Berkeley. The tap shoes came out again for Miss Keeler with the revival of No, No Nanette; probably 'they now have returned to permanent storage. For those who were enchanted by the Toronto Workshop production of Ten Lost Years, brought to the city by the Allied Arts Coun- cil, for the many who wished to see the show, another op- portunity presents itself in the television performance February 2 on Channel 7. George Luscombe's produc- tion based on the Barry Broadfoot book with original music by Cedric Smith (Perth County Conspiracy) has been applauded by thousands. It is a very special theatre that tells us about ourselves, our past, as it entertains us. It is funny, sad, touching par- ticularly all who remember "the dirty having much to say to those who can have no knowledge of the endless search for working, riding the rods, the sins com- mitted to put a meal in front of hungry children. And the question has evidently been driving many people nuts. What is the name of the theme music used for The Oiiedin Line? The answer: the adagio from the ballet music Spartacus by Kchaturian. And if you think you have heard it before, you're right. Skater Karen Magnusseri used it in her winning performance and, if memory serves right, it also formed part of the film music for Mayerling. Nothing could be more en- couraging to Peter Mueller's drama students from Catholic Central High than to have full audiences for their production of Under Milkwood. To quote Mr. Mueller, "Under Milkwood is a delightful glimpse into the lives and loves of the inhabitants of the small Welsh village of Llareggub over one fine spr- ing day. "The characters revealed throughout the melodic lines and prose of Dylan Thomas are sure to warm the hearts of all who share this ex- perience." Plan to do just that.

MATINEE: EVENING: ELVIS PRESLEY MEMPHIS, Tenn, (AP) If Elvis Presley gets the Boe- ing 707 jet plane he hopes to buy it will be "10 times more plush" than some of the places he has stayed, his lawyer says. Presley has bid 51.5 million for the plane, formerly owned by financier Robert Vesco, and already has made a 000 deposit, Charles Davis said Thursday. Davis said he expected creditors of a defunct firm formerly headed by Vesco to decide soon on whether to approve the sale to the singer. Davis said the plane, which has been at the Newark air- port since last May, has 33 passenger seats, sleeping ac- commodations for a number of persons, a sauna and steam baths, a dressing room, a study and two dining rooms. "Elvis can add more Davis said. Davis said Presley will need a permanent staff of four to operate the plane, two pilots, a flight engineer and a navigator. BIG OFFER SYDNEY (Reuter) Property developer' Paul Mekong convoy safe PHNOM PENH (AP) Two tug boats towing barges up the Mekong River with Phnom Penh's first ammuni- tion supply in a month arrived today at the Cambodian government's naval base at Neak Luong, witnesses reported. The convoy, loaded with about tons of ammuni- tion and guarded by T-28 fighter planes, helicopter gunships and navy gunboats, was earlier reported stalled with propeller trouble. Baker of Sydney has offered entertainers Barbra Streisand and Nei! Diamond a cash and land deal involving more than ?1 million: to perform in Australia. Baker said the dates for the concerts and the venues were still to be arranged, but added: "The dates we have in mind at the moment are mid July for Barbra Streisand and September for Neil Diamond." PROTEST NEW YORK {Reuter) Twenty major directors have protested against a decision making Ingmar Bergman's film, Scenes From a Marriage, ineligible for an Academy Award nomination. Among those signing a letter of protest were several directors whose own films may be nominated for awards this year. They include Italy's Federico Fellini, Francis Ford .Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Billy Wilder and Bob Fosse. The Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences declared Scenes From a Marriage ineligible because it was shown on Swedish televi- sion last year and re edited for the screen. The directors protested that this rule was arbitrary. Held Over Tonight thru tues. at and p.m. Theysearched the world...until they found each other.
