Transcript Exceptional Talent "Making dreams become reality," echoes through the halls of the drama department. Indeed, these dreams have become reality as seen in the successes of such well-known stars as Dennis and Randy Quaid, Meg Ryan, and Cindy Pickett, all of whom have been trained and coached by Cecil Pickett. Writer David Kaplan's article in the Houston Post in December '87 depicts Pickett's abilities as an exceptional teacher and director. Kaplan's interviews with Pickett's former- students-turned-stars, such as Brent Spiner (of Star Trek), boast of the professor's tenacity and reputation as a coach. Pickett is only one of the many talented members of the faculty. Drama Department Chairman Sidney Berger says that many may not realize how talented the staff and faculty are in the department. "This depart ment has. an enormous amount of professional talent," Berger boasts. Among the faculty are Claude Caux, a master in fencing and accomplished mime artist. "You have to take it seriously and prepare yourself seriously," Caux pointed out. This intensity is quite evident in Caux's fencing class. Within 15 minutes from the start of class, Caux has his students panting. But his students don't seem to mind. In the classroom, Caux's intensity becomes their intensity. Berger himself also has an impressive background and is quite active in the Houston drama community. Founder of the Houston Shakespeare Festival and recipient of the Mayor's Arts Award for Outstanding Contribution by a Performing Artist, Berger directs many productions presented by the Drama Department. "The UH Theater can be something very special in this country," Berger proclaims. "We are commited to doing this. We want to have a first rate, professional theater absolutely commited to conservatory training of young students." Each student's training includes experience with all aspects of the theater. Every student is required to serve on crews 6 out of 8 semesters. They also help design and build the sets, make the costumes, as well as serving as ushers. On the average the drama department presents 10 productions a year, "A rather huge undertaking for a department of our size" says Berger. The number of productions provides plenty of opportunities for the students to experience all aspects of the field. — LaNae Donham "Within 15 minutes from the start of the class, Caux has his students panting. 99 HILLEL — Front: Rosanne Posin, Perla Lahana, Margi Frankel.
