Photo by Prebble McLaughlin V-athr irine and Robert, two of the main characters from "Standing On My Knees," have a meaningful conversation. Photo courtesy of the Drama Dept. In a scene from Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible" two characters accused of being witches plead their case to members of the community. Photo courtesy of the Drama Dept. wo drama students treat audience members to one of the several excellent scenes from John Olive's play "Standing On My Knees".Photo court- sy of the Drama Dept. Playin' around ¥ M /brks by Arthur Miller and y |f John Olive highlighted the fall semester of play productions at the UH Drama department. Members of the cast and crew of both plays said the productions sailed smoothly with nothing more than the 'normal' cases of opening night jitters. Olive's "Standing on my Knees" opened the season. This is a powerful work about a gifted young poet struggling to come to terms with the schizophrenia that is undermining her art and life. "This piece opened the actors minds to the life of what an artist has to endure. They (the actors) know how this character interacts with her schizophrenia," said Beth Sanford, the play's director. Behind the scenes work consisted of set, costume, lighting, and sound designers. The set consisted mainly of a loft apartment with only one wall, leaving the rest of the space open to mthe audience's view. The costuming contained contemporary clothing and furnishings. "It's a little tricky backstage because we work with a combination of students," said John Middents, production manager for both plays Only a freshman, Yira Huizinga said, "I have always been willing to do any job. When I came here, I talked to people and expressed an interest in this area." Miller's tale, "The Crucible," set during the witch trials of Salem, is an American classic. The plot in- ^tudents from UH's Drama Department contributed to this powerful, riveting scene from Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible".Photo courtesy of the Drama Dept. volves an entire town of devout, pious, and responsible people who are swayed by the lies of school girls. Believing the girls caused them to condemn their own neighbors to the gallows. "We didn't have any problems except for a scare with one of the actresses who showed up 10 minutes before curtain," said Properties Master Cynthia Merillat. Without knowing any of the char- acter's dialogue, Paige Witte, (Catherine in SOMK) a member of the costume crew, was recruited to fill in. She pasted small cues to the back of all the hand props that were to be used so she would remember the lines, Merillat said. "It was really stressful, but things usually run much more smoothly," continued Merillat. Even though the opportunities for stage fright, a costume mishap, or a backstage accident are numerous, as the saying goes, "the show must go on". But Huizinga can appreciate even the worst-case scenario because she says, "Being involved with shows is great because we become a real close-knit group." Sanford added, "There is a theater saying which is "astonish me". Well, they did. I was astonished at the level of performance."-Terrie Rowe 34 ^%^ Student Lift 1 I Ptay Productions 35
