The week wos marked by many activi- ties in schools ihroughout Lethbridge and several hun- dred parents took advantage of the opportunity to visit ihe schools for a first hand look at new developments in education. The language lab, being used by stucfenls at the Lethbridga Collegiate Institute, is one of the changes that has added a new dimension to education. WCHS The King By JIAIH-ENE COOKSHAW Herald Slaff Writer Winston Churchill H i g b School took a difficult play and lulled it off with enthusiasm i n d professionalism that is uickly becoming a tradition or tbe school. The King and I, adapted from he true story, Anna and The King of Siam by Margaret Lan- lon for a Kodgers and Ham- merstein musical, is the story if an English widow who ac- cepts the position of governess o the King of Siam's wives ind children. She is faced with barriers of culture, custom and the king's stubborncss in following old Siamese ways. Her determina- ion and understanding wins the respect anrl love of both the ting and his family. The first naif of the first act was a little slow; the charac- ters did not seem to hove the vitality or interest they picked a dramatic ad- up later. Sets were d it ion to the performance. The backdrop rooftop scene was rented fromi a Calgary theatre group. It was part of a set created in Italy for a produc- tion of The King and I and valued at The effect created by the sets built and painted by the school was well worth the work it ob- viously entailed. Musical bakcground was pro- vided by part of the school or- chestra supplemented by sev- eral amateur musicians from the city and conducted by Wil- lie lUathis. Their music was beautiful, but in many cases the orchestra succeded in muf- fling the words of the singer. Further tumeb of research into cos- the 19th century would have revealed that an English schoolteacher's skirt would have dusted the floor rather lhan her ankles. But the Siamese dress was colorful and effective. Make-up was occasionally slop- py for the minor characters. Faces were usually good, but (he hands and lower legs were sometimes forgotten. The ballet in the second act was a beautiful achievement and one of the highlights of the production. The wives' voices, the orches- tra and the dancing work- ed together perfectly to create a dramatic and enthralling per- formance. Albert Azzara portrays the king, and his talent and (rain- ing is obvious. He has the abil- ity to completely obscure his own personality and actually become the character on stage. Dynamic and powerful, he is a very believable King of Siam. His solo, A Puzzlement, was sensitive and showed good un- derstanding of the role. PHARMACY FACTS from O. C.

His one poor part, which wa shared by John Ooms as Loui Leonowens, was their versio of A Puzzlement. It was sun well, but the sloppy arm move ments were distracting. The children of the king wer amazingly relaxed on stage with the smaller onces ciiarrr ng Ihe crowd and occasional! stealing the scene.
