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 total cost of about S3,500. "Man of La Mancha" is set in a prison inySpain at the end of the sixteenth cen- tury during the Spanish Inquisition. lt' is actually a play within a play. It tells of I PIHY Willlill I PIBY 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 prisoners agree. As he begins his charade he becomes Alonso Ouijuana, a country peasant who becomes insane. In his in- sanity he thinks he is Don Quixote, a man seeking to become a knight. ln his travels Quixote meets Aldonza, who he thinks of as his "lady" though she is a prostitute. Throughout the play the themes of "look for the good in people" and "reach for the stars" are apparent. Eventually the charade ends, with Quijuana on his deathbed. Were the many, many long hours of hard work worth it? Mr. Paul Holzworth, director of the musical, says, "lt is a diffi- cult play for a high school to do, but the 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." 18 Musical
