PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
It is indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the first production of Civic Theatre's 1962-1963 season.
Ann Arbor is fortunate to have the quality and variety of theatrical offerings presented by the various groups associated with this com- munity. A concrete reflection of Ann Arbor as the "Cultural Center of the Midwest" is the capacity of the community to produce and sup- port worthwhile and entertaining theatre. It therefore behooves each group presenting itself to the Ann Arbor audience to assess and eval- uate its role and its contribution to the cultural milieu. Civic Theatre's efforts in this direction are reflected first ofall in our season's play- bill. Beyond this, it appears to us that Civic Theatre makes its major contribution in providing any resident of the community various op- portunities for active participation.
So we would like to encourage you to join our group, act in our plays, and help produce them. We think you will enjoy it.
In the meantime, relax and enjoy yourselves as the audience for our first show ...
Jerry Hover President
