The show was opened by the reading of a
telegram from Cole Porter expressing his ap-
preciation for an invitation to the Hoosier per-

be a great show betore a tull house both Fridav
and Saturday nights. All the music tor the show
was written by Mr. Porter, a native Peruvian.

Juniors, Seniors Drew Full Houses
Besides the evening play practices, many hours of
planning must take place for a successful production,
Talking over "behind the scenes" problems are Mr.
Brooks Harting, assistant director, Louise Schini, Iudy
Hopper and Bon Bowland, student directors, Iayne
Evans, dance choreographer, Mr. Thomas Feit, play
director, and Mr. james Noble, music director.
This PHS production was original in two rese
