Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Tuosi ,9X2 Man of La Mancha --a landmark musical By MAUI.EXK COOKSIIAW Heralil Slaff Writer "Man of La Mancha is a land- mark is the way en- tertainment veteran Joan erfield feels about Lcthbridgc Musical Theatre's 10th produc- tion. Joan has been publicity dir- ector for LMT for the last three years, acting in tire same three productions. She was Mrs. Hig- gins in 1970's My Fair Lady, Tevyc's wife Golde in Firfdlur cm the Roof, and has taken the role of Maria, tlie innkeeper's wife, in this year's production. 'After 10 years, musical thea- tre audiences have grown in Lethbriilge, and are continually demanding more and work. With the standards up, LMT has continued to rise to meet them. "LMT has come a long way to reach a musical like Man of La Mancha. It is one of the great stories of all time." Joan describes it as a "most moving, very funny, frank and ear t bright, joyful play WENDY BURROWS for female role With Marion Marlowe not ducj to arrive in the city unlil early November, the role of Aldonza for rehearsal and- understudy is being taken by Wendy 19. She cojisiders the heavy re- hearsal schedule without the opportunity of performing "an honor.11 "It's very exciting for me be- cause I enjoy theatre so much. I feel inexperienced, and the role for me is a chance to train for something bigger. "Aldonza is not a particular- ly big part as far as lines gveryone in the cast previously, and works the movements in be s eript around to fit what he actors are capable of doing. The fight scenes require work )ecause "although everyone in he audience knows that nobody is bein g hurt, they must b 2 acted believably. "Nobody's been hurt yet, bill there are quite a few who are stiff. If they're not in shape now, they will be by the time we're finished. "There is so much movement and action while the actor is speaking. This requires a great deal of breath control, espec- ially when it is followed immed- iately by a song, "All the major movements have been taught now. It just needs practice to get the pace so it's slick." "I find it awfully hard to ex plain the story of Man of La Mancha to anyone." Wha can you say that the star i: a madman and liis leading lad; is a whore? "I give the characters move ments as I see and the story- These prisoners, they move, speak and sing would not do it in a sweet an gentle way. Their movement are not polite. 'There will be a certain amount of people who will not enjoy the story. This doesn't mean that it is not good, "Take, for example, the ah- duction and rape scene with i seven muleteers and one girl. I If you don't like it, that's how it was. You can shut your eyes and say it cMdn't happen, but it did. "I think if people find what I've done is not particularly pleasant, I'll feel that I've done a good job. Because the things arc not pleasant that I've been asked to set." Man of La Mancha will bu staged for a student perform- ance Nov. 9, and begin its 14- day run Nov. 10 at the Yates Memorial Centre. honest show. H has to to with t he dignity and d ream s of SEVERAL ROLES Man of La Mancha is a "three hank story" where all aciors play more than one, and in the case of Dick Mel Is, three characters. He portrays EUI actor in pri- son during the Inquisition who attempts to calm irate fellow prisoners with the acting of a play. He is the lead character in ID play, and also the man the haracfer becomes during hi apses into madness. Man of La Mancha is the tory of a man who "dreams he impossible becora- ng a knight-errant who tilts at rt-indmills and chooses a whore as his EARTHY SHOW "It's not the usual musical where you come out said Joan. "It's very earthy the earthiness is part of its real beauty, and yet it has a fairytale quality that's. level} It's a balance of fun and action against thoughtfulness. "The essence of the show i that there's a small cast and everyone's involved! right away, something unique in musical productions. "The cast gets an immediate over-all picture of the story "Man of La Mancha as a whole will not please every said Joan. "The slor> i great because there are parb in it that meet what individual people are looking for. Yovi can get something great for you from it." says Smith 'ycch' to motto The slogan "Wild Rose Coun- proposed for 1973 Alberta cenee plates leaves Frank mith cold. Mr. Smith, executive vice- resident o! the Travel and onvention Association of South- Alberta, responded with ycch" to the recent announcc- icnt by Highways Minister Clarence Copithornc that the logan will be on orange and c licence plates next year. The motto conjures up Im- ages of masses of wild roses and really how many wild oses do you see in Alberta Mr. Smith asfced. There aren't masses of wild roses because the department of highways has killed them all off with spraying along the roads." Mr. Smith said the motto pro- oosctl for the 1973 licence plates in Saskatchewan is better than !he Allierla idea. Saskatchew- an plates will say: "Home of the RCJIIP."
