PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Barbara Logan J. Henry Owens John Rae Donald L. Sandberg Eileen Scofield Mary Ann Stevenson
One director for all plays during a season, or several? Obviously there are special advantages either way.
For the past five seasons, Ann Arbor Civic Theatre has grown, prospered, and improved its productions markedly while employing the professional services of a single director, Ted Heusel, widely known and respected by Ann Arbor theatre audiences.
This year, four well qualified professional directors will divide the sea- son - Jerry Sandler ("Diary" director) who will handle two shows, and Bill Taylor, Clarence Stephenson, and Ted Heusel who will direct one production each.
We think you will enjoy getting acquainted with the imaginative work of these men and find the considerable variety of directorial approaches this year - our 30th! - particularly interesting and stimulating.
CHARLES C. CHADWICK,
President
