Four members of the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club (HRDC) will form a semi-professional theater company to perform at the Loeb Drama Center this summer.
The Harvard Committee on Dramatics Friday decided to allow the Harvard Summer Theater Ensemble to produce four plays at the Loeb's Experimental Theater over the summer. The group will soon name its "core" members to the theater company, who will be paid to perform.
The group will also receive $500 from a fund established by the Harvard Lampoon, Archie C. Epps III, dean of students, said Friday. Development of student dramatic talent during the summer "strengthens dramatic performance during the academic year." Epps said.
The ensemble will perform Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure." Aristophanes' "The Birds," "Suicide in B-flat" by Sam Shepard, and one other play, Peter R. Mason '81, one of the organizers of the group, said yesterday.
