Playmakers Announce 'Peer Gynt' Tickets Available Monday Tickets for "Peer Gynt," which opens on Friday will go on sale this Monday at Ledbetter Pickard's and at the Play makers new business office in Phillips hall. Prices are $.25 for children, $.85 for college students and $1.13 for all others A large group of soldiers has been in vited from Fort Bragg as guests of the Playmakers. Costumes for the fairytale story, de signed by Herbert Andrews and ex ecuted by Irene Smart, are well on the road to completion. The colors in the costumes follow the coloring of the sets. The opening sets are done in blue3 and yellows and later sets are of brighter colors. Setting and costumes work up to a color climax in the troll scene where the dominant colors are magenta and orange. For the wedding scene the costumes were copied from the Norwegian fairy books of the period and are made in actual peasant materials such as flan nels and homespuns. AH jewelry is authentic and is used as the peasants of the period used it. Each character carries his own col or, suitable to his mood and tempera ment, throughout all the scenes in the play. For instance Peer Gynt's color is a bright blue; Solveig's is white; and the mother's is brown. Old women wear purples, etc. A completely new approach to the trolls is made in the costuming. Trolls are usually regarded as green earthy creatures that superstitious people could well believe lurked in the moun tains. In this play they become crea tures of Peer's imagination, clad in fan tastic other-world clothing. They be come in reality creatures from a fairy talc book. Trolls wear odd and hor rible masks, and some of them wear pink tails. sions," state panels, and the student information center.
