BY MIKE KELLY,
Tonight at 8:00 p.m. in the
Liberal Arts Auditorium, the
Highland Players will present
“A Raisin In The Sun”, their
fourth major production this
year. This is a very unique
presentation which should not
be missed. There are several
factors involving the play
which make this an in
teresting experience right
from the beginning.
First of all, the cast.
Although “Raisin” marks the
stage debut of aU of the main
characters here at St. An
drews, the amount of talent
possessed by every one of the
actors is gazing. Each actor
knows their part inside out
and the acting they put into
them is superb.
The play involves a family
of negroes living in Chicago
around the late 50’s. Hie story
revolves around a $10,000 in
surance check received by
“Mama”, the head of the
family, as portrayed by Bren
da Howard. Brenda does a
magnificent job as the elderly
woman who, after watching
her family fight over what is
to be done with the insurance
dieck, decides to put an end
to the fighting and invests in a
house for the family.
At this point, the family
learns that the house that
Mama has bought is located
right in the middle of an all-
white neighborhood. Almost
immediat^y pressure is put
on by the neighborhood to
keep the family out; and a
representative (David Miller)
is sent over to try and per
suade the family not to move.
Jacob Houge plays the part
of Walter Lee Younger,
Mama’s son, who, together
with his wife Ruth (Dawn
Qark), his sister Beneatha
(Robin Green) and his son,
Travis (Hiram McNair) make
up the rest of the family.
Houge very vividly portrays
the frustrated son/faliier, sick
of working as a chauffer, who
wants to use the insurance
money to invest in a liquor

As the pressure builds,
Ruth, (very convincingly
played by Dawn Qark) wiio is
pregnant with their second
child, tries unsuccessfully to
deal with all the turmoil, and
upon failing, considers an
abortion instead of bringing a
second child into the troubled

tors are extremely talented.
which when combined with ai'.
award-winning play such as
Raisin, make for a per
formance that should be seen
by everyone. The play will
open tonight at 8:00 pjn., and
can be seen now through Sun
day evening. Tickets can be
purchased for $2 at the door
and reservations can be
made by contacting Dr. Mc
Donald at 276-3652.

What’s the value of investing some of your filthy money in an
evening’s entertainment? I mean, what good could come of any
elaborate, spectacular entertainment held on a brisk but
beautiful March afternoon-evening? The question is a sufficient
Extravaganza! An aptly chosen word to describe the first big
campus-wide celebration planned for this spring. The
community is cordially invited to provide and partake in its own
enrichment beginning at 2:00, Sat., March 19.
Granville-Wilmington et associates have for a long time been
coniposing an extravagant love song to delight the senses and
preferences of St. Andrews. Four pigs will be roasted. 15 kegs of
Old Milwaukee will be sampled approvingly. A variety of
sporting and recreational activities is also planned. What else is
necessary for our enjoyment? Two things: Music and that
sublime distillant of cabbage green.
Since much of the best musical entertainment available is to
be found on campus, the more transcendant portion of the
afternoon-to-early-moming celebration will begin with the
‘Kuhn Review’ (world renowned acrobats and travelling
dentists). They shall be followed by 3 gentlemen masquerading
as ‘Jody, Willy, and Ray’, an excellent country and bluegrass
trio. I don’t know how many people have heard ttie ‘BibleTones’,
a precision singing and laughing ensemble cmnposed of David
Miller, John Dodds, Chip Blankenship, and saxaphonist John
The occasion is marked from the conception by freedom and
diversity of forms and possibilities. Which means if you play an
instrument or voice (and your good) see David Strasburger.
Ah, but now we arrive at the rub. Cabbage green and the lack
of it. Permit a misquote, “The poor have also their
Extravaganza’s, even at the cost of burdensome debts,”
(Nehru) Which means that one good citizen of the connmunity,
one honorable man IN EACH INSTANCE will contribute his just
portion for the collective enjoyment. Allow me to spell it.
Stewart Brown’s band may be added to the evening’s bill if
every honorable ‘person’ will give up a few dollars of cabbage
green when the appointed solicitor knocks on your door. Is Mr.
Brown’s band wortti it? No question. His ensemble of 4 men and
2 women will astound and delight. ‘Anything is Possible’ an
original Reggae tune Stuart performs comes to my ear and
assures me of the community’s good grace in the form of
I am trying to be polite. Extra-gains.
Kathy Hall Joins
DeTamble Library has a
new addition to its staff,
Kathy Hafl. Ms. HaU, a 1975
graduate of St. Andrews, is
the new serials librarian. Her
duties include care for the
periodicals and journals, con-
tinuals, newspapers, govern
ment documents and book
binding. She is also in charge

Mrs. Hix was the serials
librarian until a' few years
ago. The position was thai

for one person, so the position
