Scene From 'Cyrano9
Cyrano, played by William F. Nave, tells Roxanne, Melanie Fessler,
of his love In one of the more romantic scenes from the Guignol
Flayers' production of "Cyrano de Bergerac." It opened last night.
By NANCY MEADOWS
From the overture music to the
last drop of the curtain. "Cyrano
de Bergerac" as portrayed by the
Guignol Players is delightful.
That's this writer's opinion, not
from a threatre critic but from one
who enjoys a good play.
"Cyrano tie Bergerac" opened
last night in Guignol Theatre. A
larpe crowd of students, townspeople and faculty members were on
hand lor the opening night production.
Most convincing in his starring
role of Cryano the ugly, chivalrous, adventurous soldier with the
oversize nose is William Nave.
From his first dashing entrance on
stage, he gains the interest of the
audience and the rapport remains
throughout the play.
One audience member who became entranced with Nave said:
"He speaks his lines with complete knowledge of what he is
saying, he moves about the stage
with the ease and know-hoprofessional. He's not Jose Ferrer,
but he sure comes close to it."
Ferrer played the lead role in the
movie union of "Cyrano."

Roxanne, delightfully played by
Melanie Fessler, seemed a little
uncertain of her role. At times she
seemed perfectly suited to her feminine lead, whil e atother times
she was lacking in the character
of the role. She was never able to

role. She seemed most at ease in

The scenery, lighting and 17th
century costumes are excellent and
add much to the total enjoyment
of the play. Five acts, each with
scenery, compose the
Rostand play, set in France.
Wallace Briggs directs the play.
Mrs. Lolo Robinson, associate director, is in charge of costumes.
Read is responsible for set
decorations and lighting.

with lots 'of humor and a touch
of sadness, see the Guignol proruns

may be secured by calling the
Guignol boxoffice, are 75 cents for
students and $1.25 for adults.
