up first, "four weeks, at an aver
age of three weekly rehearsals be
ing just loug enough. There are
ilangers iu stretching out the time
1 1'jo long, the danger of wearying
of the play itself and the still more
insiduous nauger, that of wearyiug
of one's fellow actors " The choice
of the pljy should he determined
by the amount of stage action, foi
although it is more work to rfc-
Uearse, the play 's success depends
on it. How the novice completes
his own "make tip," where to pur
chase costumes at the least possi
ble expense., stage carpentering,
and the collecting of stage proffcr
ties are all commented upon Above
all, the uecesssity of a stage uiana
ger in the jiersou of a competent
