Made up of All the basics of every Ever written there is a magic shield an evil magical a roaring lion a Beautiful Princess trapped in a Tower a fallen King a Glass clog a Royal banquet a handsome Duke a simple lad off to seek his Fortune and Manx other Little ele ments that make a fairytale so enchanting for children. And enchanting is just what the magic shield is. A fairytale must Appeal to a child s imagination with wonder and magic and just the right amount of reality. The Story must be Complete As a child is Quick to notice anything false or anything that rings untrue about a Story. The magic shield is True and Complete. The children that filled the auditorium Friday evening to Novation h a l 1 Friday evening to standing room Only capacity were in a state of Awe throughout. They booed the evil land 1 o r d who sends Mother Goose to the poorhouse they squealed when the lion rushed out on stage with a ferocious Roar they warned simple Jack of impending dangers. It is a Story for children a Story with a moral when Good meets bad Good will always the Large cast was made up of the University of Winnipeg s theatre association members. Most of the cast had two or More roles and carried it off very Well. Mother Goose was played by or. Victor leathers moustache and All. He was perfect in the part but unfortunately his singing voice has not All the Power it should so at times it was hard to. Hear him. His performance can be summed up in one word Camp. He was delightful. Mother Goose of course has to have a Goose that lays Golden eggs even if Only to pay the rent. This part was taken by Jolly Robinson the Young lady who scored such a hit in revue 70. She is an excellent mime and was a Beautiful magic Goose. Mother Goose has two children a boy and a girl simple Jack and Little Ash pit played and Sung by Brian Bjorklund and sue Parker. Or. Bjorklund has a Fine singing voice and a Talent for creating Beautiful characterizations. The Audi ence was with him every step of the Way through the enchanted Forest Over the wastelands up the mountains under the sea and outside the evil magician s Tower. He won the hearts of the children particularly with his first entry into the enchanted Forest.

Two Veteran yugoslav pilots who won Many decorations and honors for their feats in the air were killed wednes Day in a traffic Accident near the Airport. Actress though and had All the sympathy of the Chil Dren As she was turned into a Kitchen slave for the evil landlord and his three ugly Sisters. The evil landlord was played by Nelson Rajotte. He was the most evil mean and underhanded Man in the whole kingdom. First he broke up Mother Goose s Home and led her children into danger then had her sent to the poor House. In the meantime he forced Little Ash pit into slavery and tried to keep her from meeting the hand some Duke. This of course was to no Avail. Or. Rajotte created a very believable evil landlord but not evil enough to not be forgiven when he restored the Golden Goose to Mother Goose. Howard Gurevich was a convincing evil magi Cian but his Black Cape could have been bigger the flourishes would have come off better. With the excellent makeup he was the silent lord of evil supervising All the wrong doings in the kingdom. The evil landlord s three ugly Sisters Diane Walton Jane Dick and Margie Schram were the biggest hit of the evening. These three talented Young ladies got the biggest rounds of applause and literally stole the show with their i am pretty song. They were excellent fun throughout the show. With three of the jewels restored to the magic shield simple Jack must find the fourth. He remembers the riddles and looks into the shield. The fourth jewel is an inspiration of Genius in technique and comes off very Well to the Delight of the children. The chorus of villagers and guests were a Good backdrop for the main characters. On the whole their singing was Good but their Jerky movements tended to distract from the action of the leads. This fault must lie with the director As they All did the same motions.
