Man Of La Mancha
The lights are dim in the prison, where
one of the bedraggled prisoners picks out
a woeful tune on the guitar. Suddenly all is
quiet as a huge ladder is lowered from the
ceiling and two new arrivals are sent
down. Thus began "Man of La Mancha",
this year's annual school musical. In reali-
ty, the formidable stone walls of the dun-
geon were styrofoam and the motley crew
of prisoners a cast of hard-working stu-
dents. The musical was one of the most
expensive ever attempted at West, with a

Miguel de Cervantes, who upon arrival in
the prison is attacked by prisoners who
threaten to take all his possessions.
Pleading with them, he promises to act
out his defense in a charade, to which the

charade ends, with Quijuana on his

cast did the play justice. The perfor-
mances were very gratifying." He de-
scribed "Man of La Mancha" as being an
almost perfect blend of drama, music,
and choreography. Assisting Mr. Holz-
worth were music director, Mr. May, tech-
nical director, Mr. Cervantes, and choreo-
grapher Mrs. Mickie Moskowitz.
Serving as the leading lady in the production, sen-
ior Connie Lannan expresses her feelings to the
muleteers in the song "Aldonza."
