CAMINO IS SUCCESS
Tennessee Williams' Camino Real,

NCSA under the direction of Dr. Os-
valdo Riofrancos, completed the first
part of its successful run on January

by 2595 people from Winston-Salem
and near-by communities.
Indicative of the quality of
the reception of the play by audienc

letter to Dr. Riofrancos from Dr.
Harry Davis, Chairman of the Depart
ment of Drama at UNC in Chapel Hill,
Director of the Carolina Playmakers,
and director of Unto These Hills:
Dear Mr. Riofrancos:
This is a belated note to thank you
for your kind personal invitation of
last November to see your production
Camino Real. Mrs. Davis and I
came over in early December, and were
highly impressed with the production.
The piece was excellent for your pur
poses, in providing so many good
roles for the company, and the matu
rity and the discipline with which
they were handled was noticeably su
perior. I congratulate yoia:. most
heartily on the fine training that
is evident in your school.
