Student Actors Form 'Cambridge Repertory' For Local Institutions

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A group of Harvard and Radcliffe students have formed a travelling repertory theatre, for the production of plays and readings in prisons, hospitals, or high schools.

The group, called The Cambridge Repertory Theatre, is headed by Charles L. Mee '60, and Mark J. Mirsky '61. It intends to build a repertoire consisting primarily of plays by Shaw and Shakespeare.

The theatre is not now an official Harvard organization, but at present it is negotiating to become a part of the Harvard Dramatic Club.

The group will be non-profit, but will attempt to break even financially. "We are able to produce just good theatre," Mee said, "without sets and without money. The emphasis will be on performance."

Several members of the group are currently engaged in the HDC's Theatre Workshop production of Shaw's "Don Juan in Hell," which will afterwards become the first play in their repertoire.
