Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Jun. 7, 1972 THE IKcHSRIDGE HUMID As You Like It starts festival Hos boald By VICTOR STANTON STRATFORD, Ont. {CP5 The Slrattord Festival's 20th season got off a lengtliy, col- orful and regal start here with a oVa-hour-long production of William Shakespeare's As You Like It, the opening night pas- liche of fashion conscious first nighters and tlic pres- ence of Governor General Rol- and Michtner. The Governor-General's party arrived in a horse-drawn car- riage and received the royal treatment of being the first to leave and the last to enler the festival Theatre auditorium at ntermissions. Outside, in sunny, warm evening, killed bagpipers com- p e t e d with clown-costumed members of Hie Perth County Conspiracy, a local pop music group, for the pre-show atten- tion ol formally-gowned thea- tre-goers and casually-dressed sightseers. After the show, a gala recep- tion in the theatre foyers was open to all the audience, with free hors d'oeuvres, drinks for SI apiece and dancing.

(AP) i says tesls now show "there's no After five years, it turns out I doubt about it, she's a gifted that a pretty seven-year-old is not mentally retarded, as doc- tors had thought. She is hard of hearing. Sara Keeman is intellectually gifted. But [he years of incor- rect diagnoses by pediatricians and psychologists who exam- ined her has happened to other children who share her prob- lem. She's not the only one of our students snatched from the doors of mental retardation pro- director says Euth Jackson, of a special public school program here for clu'l- dren with hearing programs. Sara is one of 73 children in the program, which uses special equipment and teaching meth- ods aimed at integrating the ciu'ldren as soon as possible into regular classes. 'It took five years to diagnose her problem and she v.'as pretty frustrated and unhappy said Sara's mother, Mrs. .lames Kcciian of Mountain View. Sara has been fitted with hearing aid, and Mrs. Jackson child." IOT BAD ADVICE Kirs. Jackson said when a child has trouble hearing, Ms anguage and social develop- ment can be affected drasti- "As a baby, Sara cried a lot and was difficult to said her mother. 'Then when she hadn't developed any lan- guage by two we decided to take her to a pediatrician." 'He told us not to worry, that children develop at different rates." Mrs. Jackson said thai for five years other pediatri- cians and psychologists offered the same advice. Experts at a private school for the hard of hearing in Palo Alto identified tlie problem. Instead of the special nursery school for retarded children that doctors had recommended, Sara was enrolled in Mrs. Jackson's program. Now, she often wakes early to read books in bed before school and her teachers say she will be ready to enroll in regular read- ing classes next fall. when the festival production of Hull, Alfred de Muscl's Lorenzaccio opens. APPLAUSE FREQUENT Despite the length of Monday night's production, directed by William Hull, who has his turn as actor Wednesday night in the title role of King Lear, few in the audience seemed bored. There was frequent applause throughout the evening for (he performers, a number of whom were making their Stratford de- buts. Principal among these and certainly the star of the evening, 'was English actress Carole Shelley who played Ros- alind with commanding stage presence and versatility ol char- acterization. Another favorite of the audi- ence was Edward Aticnza, also a newcomer from England, who portrayed the wise fool Touch- stone as a combinalion jack-in- the-box and acrobal. Critics differed sharply in their opinions of the production: Herbert Wluttaker, Toronto Globe and Stratford revival which fights its way past several theatrical tradi- tions qharming in a newish way, not experimental exactly, but keeping up with the times. Urjo Kni-eda, Toronlo "Hull's As You Like It is exas- peratingly characterless formance that would lie worth seeing even if everyone else on the stage spoke Greek." Peter Bellamy, Cleveland Plain takes a vi- brant, exciting woman in the presence of actress Carole Shel- ley to save the opening produc- tion of the Stratford Shake- speare Festival from being a bit of a bore." Carole Shelley is utterly out of her depth.'" Richard Li Coe, Washington 20th year of Stratford has begun on a happy note." Dave Billington, Montreal play's structural faults and gap-filled dialogue were pitilessly exposed by Wil liam Hutt1 s production which tended to drag far more often than it lifted. Had it not been for Miss Shelley's always sounc ant] at times brilliant tour do force, the evening which prom ised so much would have been a disaster."
