Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 28, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg free press monday december 28, 1970 he red shoes production full of magics inn actors showcase production of red shoes by Hans Christian Andersen opened saturday at studio 22 on the Canadian forces base Sharpe Boulevard. This is actors showcase Chil Dren s Christmas presentation. The red shoes is an old fairytale of a pair of magical dancing shoes that one May put on easily but needs the special magic Button Hook to take off. Too when one wears the shoes she cannot Stop dancing and must obey the Button Hook. The cast includes David King As the dark mysterious Gypsy and present owner of the red shoes Len Ross As Jemino his mute Clown Winston Mac Donald As the Burgmeister Faye Thomson As Karen Michael Gagnon As Nels mar Garet Lyndon As Karen s lost grandmother. The show is a fanciful one full of magic and fun. It Alsi has a very moral ending tha will come As a Surprise to Many who have never seen this particular production of rec shoes. The characters Are Al Well taken and As far As the children in saturday s audience were concerned it was a Roar ing Success. David King As the Gypsy snog has an excellent feeling for the past. He is dark and handsome As an evil Gypsy should be and captures the imagination of the children right from the Start. As his evil intentions become unveiled the children see him As the perfect personification of the evil that will beset Karen. Len Ross As the Clown was very funny and an excellent a r o b a t although his dancing leaves something to be desired also there was top much slap stick comedy which took the form of up staging while important action was taking place or another part of the stage. The children however were delighted by his Zany antics am followed his every move. As is the Case in most morality plays it is the fool who comes out on top As the Champion o Good and right and in the enc defeats evil and injustice so too in red shoes. Jemmo is the Wise All knowing fool who car his Wisdom behind a mask f wit. Winston Macdonald and mar g a r e t Lyndon As the Bur Homeister and grand Mother respectively carry off their parts Well and add to the building concept of fantasy in the play. Or. Macdonald has a Good sense of comedy and miss Lyndon has captured the very essence of the part and there fore the children s imagination. Karen played by Faye Thorn son was a Beautiful dancer am suited the part admirably. Al though not the Best actress on stage she carries the part to the Best of her abilities. The children love her immediately and follow her adventures and misadventures with rapt Atten Tion. Michael Gagnon As Nels Karen s boy Friend did not Lave a clearly defined characterization. From the Start he Vas not Brave enough or Force us enough so we Are slightly surprised when at the end of he play he overcomes the evil Gypsy and saves Karen. Or. Gagnon who made such a Suc Ess in tiny closet at actors showcase last presentation in the planetarium auditorium should choose his roles More carefully and not take badly suited parts for exposure s Sake. The sets designed by Ted Koroi Are some of the Best actors showcase has used. They Are fanciful and colourful and delightfully appealing to an audience made up mostly of children. The choreography by director Daphne Korol is Well de signed for the play and the si2e of the stage. One might ques Ion the legion of Happy pea Sants cavorting on stage at the pening of the play. This went on too Long and impeded the tart of the play so important a the children. A word too Mist be said about the Chase Cene. This was very funny for he children but not at All Well med. There were moments Hen the stage was Bare and e were left to our own de vices. It went on just a Little too Long As Well. It could do to be at least three minutes Shorter. A critic must question the size of the audience at Amateur theatrical presentations. There Are several groups now operating in Winnipeg and they Are All vying for our attendance. It is disappointing to see 30 or 40 people scattered about in an auditorium designed for 100 or 200 people. Amateur theatre has a place on the Winnipeg theatre scene and what better Way to est the competence of the groups than through a Chil Dren s presentation. Red shoes will be presented again today at 2 . And 7 . At studio 22 on the Canad an forces base. Is St three free press Carrier boys at the Winnipeg International Airport sat urday before leaving for Calgary and Disneyland Are left to Larry Dorn Tony Kusiak Hayden Kent Alain Rouillard Christopher Schimnowski Peter Kloss Jeff Beaudry and Brent Loewen. The boys won the trip in a Winnipeg circulation contest. Follows in father s footsteps Carrier wins wrist watch in Scrooge something familiar yet new for Many people part of the Holiday tradition includes a nostalgic and teary look at the 1951 British production of a Christ Mas Carol Courtesy of our Friendly local television station. With the increased Tempo of the times it will probably be less than three years before this old favorite will be re placed on the Small screen by the latest adaptation of the Dickens Story. The new version Scrooge is now at the gaiety Complete with music dancing Albert Finney and even a Smid Geon of the original Story. There s something about Scrooge that makes the traditionalist in me writhe in pain. Dame Edith Evans As the ghost of Christmas past is Fine and she does look As if she s seen quite a few Holiday seasons. Even the fact that Albert Fin Ney wanders around rasping songs like a bad amalgam of Rex Harrison and Richard Bur ton is endurable. However Alec guinness comes on with a Jacob Marley who is so Limp waisted and effete that he looks like a refugee Are among the most forgettable this year. Leslie Bricusse the songs is also responsible for the screenplay y Here Scrooge Falls Down. The occasional lines from the original Story stand out in Sharp con Trast to the Bricusse dialogue. It almost makes one wish write from the boys in the band. It May be Art. But it just was t the Christmas Carol. On the plus Side Kenneth More is the very epitome of the ghost of Christmas present. He not Only looks the part he con Veys the whole spirit of jollity and Good will. Granted the makers of Scrooge were after the spirit of the original Story and were not Content to do it As others had done before. They have stretched shoved condensed and manipulated As they saw fit in order to give audiences something familiar yet new. The atmosphere is similar to that of Oliver the most effective musical adaptation of an other Dickens tale. Once More there Are the teeming London treets of More than Century ago the urchins the beggars he tradesmen. As in Oliver hese people occasionally burst Rito song and carefully Chorro i the advertisements urge graphed dance. J parents to bring their children. In Oliver it worked splendid it is a family show several cuts above the usual children s fare. But if this film Ever gets to television Christmas won t awards for outstanding ser vice in delivering the free press now Are a father and son tradition for the Cox family of 498 Oakland Avenue East Kil Donsa.
