Thalians Will Stage ‘Candlelight’
Saturday Evening At High School
talgic glance at a disappearing
world, the Thalian association will
present Saturday night at the High
school the comedy “Candlelight,”
adapted to the American stage by
P. G. Wodehouse.
Before the blitzkreig, before Hit
ler and the totalitarian state, there
was a happy hunting ground known
as Vienna. There the ladies were
all lovely and amiable, the gentle
men charming and gallant. It was
a whimsical world of laughter and
music, where husbands knew their
places and love was all.
For maid to become mistress,
and man to become master was
not unusual in those sophisticated
times. But through the cock-eyed
vision of P. G. Wodehouse these
metamorphoses lose their scanda
lous implications and become pure
—or relatively pure—fun.
The cast includes such Thaliar,
favorites as Mary Jane Holden.
Louise Highsmith, R. Willard Cam
well, Sally Wiggins, Bill Archai,
Mike Walker, J. E. Williams and
Rod Holden. Under the suave di
rection of Howard Ganstier, who
is at his best with light comedy,
every nuance of this high-spirited
vehicle is brought to light.
This production is the final Thal
ian effort for the season.
