The Scots have no Brigadoon in their folklore , but they do have in their history. as do we all. a special need for the clements of a Brigadoon. i.e .. peace. beauty. happiness and love. We have set our "Brigadoon" in the year 1746. when the Highlanders of Bonnie Prince Charlie waged a tragically unsuccessful struggle with England, resulting in the destruction of many clans and the outlawing of bagpipes and kilts. Here was a time when 'escapism' and 'fantasy' were sorely needed. Perhaps we can gain some appreciation of the elements of a Brigadoon as tonight we share its gifls. Steve Reynolds began his directing career in 1973 in Connecticut Artistic Director with "Paint Your Wagon". So it's not surprising to find him STEVEN C. REYNOLDS enthusiastically engineering "Brigadoon" for Ann Arbor Civic Theatre. He has directed every Lerner and Loewe musical with the exception of "My Fair Lady". in less than four years. Not content merely to pursue the completion of a Lerner/ Loewe 'cycle'. Steve has directed "Man of La Mancha". "Oklahoma!". "Bye Bye Birdie". "The Sound of Music", and "Little Abner" as well as several plays. The student summer theatre he started in Weston. Conn. is still in operation. Its first production? "Camelot". by Lerner and Loewe. Steve is a high school drama and English teacher in Hazel Park by day. He will direct "Bye Bye Birdie" this summer at Croswell Opera House. ~ ~nrb.rr.a FOR ALL YOUR CYCLING NEEDS thr Vrttal Crutrr Plymouth Road at US 23 Ann Arbor ':~ ·l'.·.,<>·,. .---""'"~--- ··:_ .. !-_-\ ·-.. -_.~. ;:_,._:,. ·. ____ . . . ;-. __ . ~~\\\\,\[_] Thlnnk 1 U~ ~qnp m~ . ~ · _ . £ 303 South State Street Ann Arbor, Ml (3131 ~'"' 0 -7653 .1i ,.

MAIN John E. Burgess has the unusual distinction of having been musical director for two consecutive AACT musicals. His was the orchestra and chorus which were such a great part of the success of "'Little Mary Sunshine''. He was orchestrator/arranger and assistant musical director for Eastern Michigan University's "Of Thee I Sing" last fall as well. Musical Director JOHN E. BURGESS John has been in three past Civic Theatre orchestras. and his· bassoon was heard in Musket's "Funny Girl" and "Counterpoint", and in Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Mikado" (not the most recent one). He is working on a MMA degree at the U of M School of Music. expecting to work professionally in music and theatre in the future. THE STAFF Thomas Bloom (set designer) has designed "The Crucible" and "Cosi Fan Tutte" for the U of M School of Music, and "Tasca" and "La Nozze de Figaro" for the Opera Association of Western Michigan. This is his first design for AACT. Tom is from Grand Rapids , and he obtained his MA degree at another U of M, the University of Minnesota. Craig C. Campbell (technical director) came here from Iowa to build settings for "Music Man" and "The Mikado", both of which were staged earlier this month. Civic Theatre's good fortune is that he still had the energy to finish "Brigadoon"! Sophia Farah (makeup) has put grease paint on so many faces so many times that she may be a local legend. But she is also very real, and she always manages to run the makeup room in a style all her own. Diamond~-Watches-Gifts Imported Crystal EDWARDS JEWELERS.tNc. Watch and Clock Repairing David J. Pa\tor Jeweler 215 S. Main St. Ann Arbor. Mic hi gan Telephone 665-3787 Barbara Heston (assistant director) has tilled several different positions in Civic Theatre productions, from chorus member in "Promises, Promises" to prop mistress to membership chair. She was a featured vocalist on MSU television while a student, so perhaps you'll see her on stage again soon. Michael W. Housefield (lighting designer) has been designing sets and lighting locally for several years, and is one of those designers who can get up from the drawing board and handle a wrench until the wee hours to get a show ready in time for the opening curtain. He has designed for the Croswell Opera House in Adrian, U of M theatres, Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Musket, Comic Opera Guild, Saline Area Players, and of course, AACT. Mike's most recent work was lighting design for "Cosi Fan Tutte" in March. Sylvia Marie Llewellyn (producer) came to us from Toronto three years ago. She appeared as a farmer's wife in "The Night Thoreau Spent In Jail" for AACT, and was prop mistress as well. Then in Spofford, she got a chance to combine the two tasks, as the prop crew were seen on stage during scene changes. Sylvia has filled several other backstage niches for Civic productions, including assistant director for "Oklahoma!" and producer of "Harvey" last summer. She says she would like to be a producer in "real life". Diane J. A. Monach (costume designer) is an EMU graduate student in costume design. She designed costumes for "The Little Foxes" at Northwestern U, but had an appendectomy on opening night and never got to see her creations on stage. Diane's grandmother was a Mcfarland, so are the Monachs, so she and her husband may be distantly related. In any case, they're very Scottish, so "Brigadoon" is a natural for Diane! A Texas native, she's looking forward to a design career. Mark Murphy (assistant stage manager) has been technical director for productions of several local theatrical groups. He is on the board of directors of the Comic Opera Guild, and is chief engineer at radio station W AAM. Mindy Oddy (stage manager) is a veteran at this position, having guided many players to their "places, please" in productions of Musket, AACT and others. In the daytime she's an elementary teacher. Louisa Pieper (properties) has been prop chairperson for AACT for many productions. She is co-membership chairperson this year as well. Louisa spends a lot of her daytime hours working at Kempf House. David Reynolds (rehearsal pianist) has played the rehearsal accompaniment for the last four Civic Theatre musicals. He appeared in the chorus of "Oklahoma!" last Spring. A singer and composer, Dave also acted in "The Potboiler" in the AACT summer season last year, and directed another summer show, "Crawling Arnold". He is an economics student at the U of M.

Otherwise, he has been very active backstage and in the scene shop, as builder for " Little Mary Sunshine" and for Comic Opera's "The Merry Widow"_ Unfortunately for Ann Arbor, Paul has moved to Lansing a,nd a position as a state engineer. TeDee A. Theofil (choreographer) danced the dream Laurey in Civic's recent "Oklahoma!". She was the tormentor in "Jesus Christ, Superstar", and worked with the Yeats Ensemble. She has her own Studio J School of Dance here, and has choreographed a number of ballet and jazz pieces. Watch for TeDee's choreography in Michigan Rep's "Kiss Me Kate" this summer.

A dental assistant, Judy was in "Guys and Dolls" and "Promises, Promises" in Pennsylvania before coming to Ann Arbor. Liz Rosenzweig (Clan Beaton) is on her way from Bradford, PA, to "outside L.A.". A graduate student who plans to stage manage professionally, this is Liz's first local stage appearance. She has been stage manager, assistant director or assistant to the lighting designer for a half-dozen recent U of M productions. Kathryn Sanders (Jane Ashton) is a graduate of the Academy of Dramatic Art at Oakland University. She was born in Detroit, lives in Ypsilanti, and works in Ann Arbor. Someday she hopes to go to New York to study acting. Kathy says she loves to travel but never can afford it. Would someone please tell her that New York is East of Detroit? She seems to be heading the wrong way. tlOWE R S F'QR AlL OCCASION" TONY S H OEM A KE"R WEDDING PROP~IETOR <;~EC1Al15T5 FLOWERS B Y WI FIE • 1finnbnn ~lnfurn, }ftlt. 109 E A ST LIBERTY S T R E ET ANN AR B O R MICHIGAN 48 108 665- 4 491 M E M BFR TELEf'"LOR IS T Marie F. Simecek (Clan MacLaren) played Olga in Comic Opera Guild's "The Merry Widow". This is her first AACT show. A vocal music teacher in Ypsilanti schools, Marie sings in the choir at St. Paul's Lutheran Church here. She belongs to Mu Phi Epsilon music sorority. Charles Sutherland (Tommy Albright) has been on this stage so many times it must seem like home. He has done many G & S shows, Civic Theatre musicals, and other productions as well. Charlie was Captain Jim in "Little Mary Sunshine" last fall, and directed "Spofford" in between that and "Brigadoon". He's on the AACT board of directors, teaches third grade in Detroit, and has already signed up for Michigan Rep '77, so look for him there this summer. Hal Trebilcox (Clan MacLeod) is another who is reticent about his achievements. Let's just say that if you've seen him on stage before, tell the people sitting next to you! Ted Van Sickle (Andrew MacLaren) returns to Ann Arbor Civic Theatre after a twelve year absence. Those who saw Civic's 1965 production of "Oklahoma!" may remember a slightly younger Ted as Jud Frye. Perhaps we'll see him onstage again, prior to 1989! Gwen Werner (Clan MacLeod) is a Pioneer High sophomore studying dance at Studio 1, where she is a member of the Studio 1 Dance Ensemble. Gwen is also on the Pioneer gymnastics team. Karen Woodward (Clan Dalrymple) was Gracie in Huron High's "Music Man". She danced with the Ypsilanti Area Dancers for a year. An antique bicycle fanatic, Karen is in special education for the hearing impaired at Eastern Michigan U. Nan Worthington (Clan MacMillan) says this is the first time she's "strayed" from the Gilbert & Sullivan Society to be in a Civic Theatre show. She is a veteran of fifteen G&S productions, onstage and behind the scenes. Nan says she still hasn't seen the Arctic Circle or New Zealand.
