Kerber Photo did not sliine in new LCI production By JiARLENE COOKSIIAW Herald Staff Writer The Lelhbridge Collegiate In- stitute's production of Bye Bye Birdie Wednesday night was a mediocre performance with a few brilliant spots lhat made the whole show worth watch- ing. The play approached three hours in length and wasn't paced well enough to make you unaware of the lime. Set changes should not have taken as much time as they did.

Albert's mother, played by Lee Heinhardt, had the poten- tial of a strong dynamic and hilarious character, but mostly she came off as a lonely old lady who said some funny things. David and Laurie Mann as Mr. and Mrs. MacAfee were by far the most outstanding actors on Ihs slage. The gruff father and his fluttery wife were de- lightful to watch and demon- strated the talent and adapt- ability of ter learn.

It may have been just be- cause it was a second-night per- formance or because the au- dience was small. Probably a lot had to do with the fact that it's the first production by tho school in three years and most of Ihe cast hasn't had any act- ing experience outside the school. A production a year would definitely improve the natural quality on stage and give the students a chance lo apply whal they had learned from a previous performance. The production crew had some well-qualified members as well. Jerry Pokarney led the LCI school band in a good, strong accompaniment to tho musical numbers, and liis wife Diane's choreography brought a bright young quality to the stage. A small dance scene by Lori Ully is worth mentioning. A young, talented dancer, her per- formance was bright and sim- ple and professionally done. Sets, designed by Art Pozzi and Jack Stead, provided a stark white background for the actors, and were just what was needed.
