The highly-functional set of simulated grey castle stone, curtained in.scL and revolving walls was designed by Edward Kotancn of Thunder Bay, Ont. Director Alan Lund's choreog- raphy of Scottish dances and stylized battle scenes was strongly applauded, although comments were heard among the audience that the show's music, by Canadian composcr- arranger Howard Cable, lacked any memorable melodies. Herbert Whittaker, Globe and Mail theatre critic, says the Charlottelown production "fills the big stage of O'Keefe Centre generously with much pagean- try, resounding speech, trum- peting music and high flourish." date set WINNIPEG (CP) Premier Ed Schrcycr announced Tues day a byeleclion will be held Friday, June 16 in the soulh- cenlral Winnipeg constituency ot Wolscley, since before the start of the current Mani- toba legislature session.
