Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 1u- iHt LtiHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, June 28, Civil servants entertained by theatre group OTTAWA (CP) Modern mummers came to a downtown Ottawa park yesterday and despite a threatening cloudburst, entertained lunching civil servants with contemporary and classical fables. The four actors and actresses from the Global' Village Theatre, Toronto, have been on a cross-country tour since June 10, performing in civic centres, schools, theatres, parks and promenades in 13 cities. Their performance on the grass, within a circle marked by a rope to delineate the stage area, was without any modern theatrical aides such as amplifiers, music or lights, leaving the four to their own devices. Their energy, dancing ability, and talent for mime drew applause from the crowds which stopped by for a few minutes, at least, of the hour-long show. Perhaps 100 sat on the grass and stayed for most of the performance, until rain began. The four included Patsy Rahn, director and choreogra- pher for the travelling com- pany, Nancy Snipper, Bill Lake and Jon Ruddle. Some of the fables they enacted were classics by Aesop and Tolstoy, but most were by Robert Swerdlow, resident writer for Global Village in Toronto. Perhaps best-liked of the skits was the story of the Arab and his donkey hired by a traveller to cross the desert, each seeking the shade of the animal under the blazing the animal sloughs off his burden and goes home his own way. Another told of Peter from Petersburg, who can't under- stand English but through a series of coincidences rises to be president of his company and prime minister of the land, never making a mistake. He. too, finally gives up the burdens thrust on him and goes home his own way. The Modern Fables group employs narration with dance and mime to tell the stories. No will left by jazz king NEW YORK (Reuter) Jazz king Duke Ellington, who died last month, left an estimated estate, but failed to leave a will to dispose of it. This was disclosed in Manhattan Surrogates Court yesterday where Ellington's son. Mercer, has filed a petition seeking the court's authority to administer his father's assets. The estimated estate value did not include Ellington's interest in copyrights to his musical compositions and royalties that may accrue.

(AP) After 10 albums, folk singer Gordon Lightfoot says he is as surprised as anyone that his single record, Sundown, is the No. 1 song in the United States. "I kind of got the idea I was going to be an album artist all my the Canadian song- writer-singer said in an interview following a concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Centre. Sundown, which has sold 1.2 million copies, is rated No. 1 this week by Billboard, as is the album by the same title. "No one is more surprised than we are that we have a No. 1 he said. Lightfoot played in bars and coffee houses throughout Canada and the United States for the first five of his 17 years in the business. He says it was a good learning ground but he is happy to be on top now, able to reach a larger audience. I don't miss the coffee houses and bars because I got my guts filled with that scene. It's pretty demanding work. "We've been playing before pretty large audiences and it seems to pan out." Lightfoot, who plays the six and 12-string guitar, is accompanied by Terry Clemens on lead guitar and Richard Haynes on bass. Born in Orillia, Ont., Lightfoot moved to Los Angeles after high school. He attended Westlake College of Music, became a fan of Pete Seeger and Ian and Sylvia Tyson and began writing some tunes. Ian and Sylvia made available his Early Morning Rain and For Loving Me to a wide audience. "Somebody has to get onto your material for Lightfoot said.

And there are actors who hold out for what they consider are only good parts, figuring that they can do no craft perfecting except in parts that are well-written. Michael Murphy is one of the latter group. And his fussiness is making Hollywood tear its hair in frustration. They want him for movies, for TV series, for TV guest shots, because he's good and they know it, but he keeps being shy about it. He says he used to average four or five definite series offers a year. And then he did "The. Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman" he played the reporter who came to interview Cicely Tyson and the offers increased. So far, nothing's come along to tempt him. "I don't work very he says. "I don't need to do much. I'm not married. I live in a shack at Malibu and my tastes are modest." He drives a '50 Mercury, but it's a thing of beauty it's a traffic stopper. He tore it apart and rebuilt it himself. It was something of a labor of pride, because, up until then, he'd never been the mechanical sort. He just decided it was time he learned. Murphy is one of Bob Altman's repertory company the director likes to use the same actors again and again. He's about to go into Altman's which will be his seventh or eighth he forgets MICHAEL MURPHY which film with Bob. He also has a major role in the upcoming "Phase which smells like one of 1974's big ones. Murphy is a Los Angeles boy. His father dealt in used canvas. Because of that he got into the business of putting up tents for big Hollywood parties. As a boy, Mike would go with his dad to help set up the tents and he met a lot of the biggies. He remembers once wandering around Gary Cooper's place and Coop came out. "He didn't know who we he says. "I was with my older sister. But he was very nice to us, anyhow." He went to the University of Arizona, where he was a big man on campus and roomed with Barry Goldwater's son. He studied education and taught for a few years. He was teaching in Watts the day John Kennedy was assassinated. "It was he says. "Very few of the kids there understood what had happened."
