Since seeing the play we have been informed that Joe Demorulle who played Michael so very well was selected best actor, Harris Settly Jr., best supporting actor for his role of Emory and Miss Lillette Rene' as director of the year. Wes and I want to put in our congratulations and say the entire cast was excellent. We are happy to say that now in the Lafayette area "Chez Gis- ele" and "C'est LaGueree" are handling the NUNTIUS. -- "Mothers" in Lake Charles as well as the "Off Main" in Beaumont. Bits and pieces of news from there --- Congratulations to Ken and Charity St. James on their 4th anniversary, June 2. Miss Birdie, a local drag "lady" -- has joined the US Merchant Marine. By the time this goes to press Mother Pat should be thawed from her trip to Chicago and can put her furs back in storage. In a city as large as Houston its not uncommon for bars to come and go daily and monthly but we are saddened to learn that a well known plush private club has closed its doors in Lake Charles, "the Misty". We wish to thank Genie and Lynn for the many pleasant evenings we've spent at the "Misty" and hope them the best in their new venture. -- A '' straight'' club, and we won't mention the name here! In closing we want to throw in a brain twister for the Beaumont group -- "What two well known female impersonators will perform in a 'straight' style show in your area?" -- If you can't guess or don't know - watch next month pictures yet.
