As "Sarah Simple," which will have its American premiere in Brattle Hall on Wednesday and Friday evenings, March 20 and 22 at 8.30 o'clock, goes into the final stages of rehearsal, the Dramatic Club announces the names of those who are taking charge of managing the production.
The Club has been fortunate in securing the services of Edward P. Goodnow '17 as director. "Sarah Simple" will be the eighth play which Goodnow has directed for the Club and also his seventh Milne play. In 1921 he directed the Club's production of Milne's "Wurzel-Flummery" and in 1931 Milne's "Success," which later appeared in New York as "Give Me Yesterday."
Whitney M. Cook '36 will head the staff as manager, while Edward M. Eager '36 will serve as his assistant. The rest of the staff is as follows: Spencer B. Fulweiler '37, stage manager; A. Townshend Johnson '37, designer; Paul Killiam, Jr. '37 and Robert McKee '37, publicity managers; Stephen Greene '37, patronesses, John Garber '36, programs, Frederick Miller '37, photography; Sheldon C. Sommers '37 and Richard Alschuler '37, tickets; and Keith Hartford '37, properties.
Following the play on Friday evening, March 22, there will be dancing from 11 o'clock until 1 o'clock. The House Orchestra has been engaged to play.
