With the front steps of Widener as the auditorium, the Jitney Players will give a performance of Bernard's Shaw's "Arms and the Man" in the Yard on Monday evening, July 31, at 8.45 o'clock. This group of itinerant actors have been coming to the summer school for almost ten years presenting plays that time has proved valuable.
The truck which carries all the property as well as most of the actors and actresses will serve as the stage and will be draped to resemble, a bedroom or a garden as the script demands. In the play, Bernard Shaw invokes all his dry humor against the fanfare of war mock bravery, and the gold buttons. In case of rain the performance will be held indoors in Sanders Theatre. Two years ago when the Jitney Players almost 500 spectators, summer school students and public attended.
Tickets for the Monday performance go on sale at the Summer School office in Sever 3 beginning tomorrow afternoon. Admission is $.50 plus a five cent government amusement tax.
