The Thalian east of the Penn
sylvania Dutch comedy, ‘Papa is
AH’ has been working this week
to polish and prune the play into
a finished production. Auihentic set
and properties are so essential to
this type of play that special at
tention has been given to construc
tion of the set and to otatainment
of real Mennonite costumes. Papa
Aukamp assumes a more vicious
aspect with his long black coat and
broad brimmed »hat; and Mama
Aukamp, with her dark floor
length dress, displays the severe
and limited style of dress worn by
the Mennonite sect.
The curtain will be raised to the
public on this third production of
the season by the local little thea
ter group at 8:30 o’clock Wednes
day evening, April 26, in Thalian
hall. A previous showing of the
play under the auspices of the
Gray Ladies will be presented at
Camp Davis hospital Sunday even
ing at 6:30. Tickets for the show in
town are now on sale at Lenox
Cooper’s office, 109 Chestnut street.
The story of the Aukamps is
woven by fate’s hand. Their cloist
ered and circumscribed life, in con
trast to our busy, bustling war
time lives, strikes a singularly
poignant chord. Although these
people’s mode of living appears
far-fetched to us, their type of ex
istence is a fact.
