Transcript IAY 21, 1982/MONTROSE VOICE 17 May 21,1982/Montrose voice 15 /ide open and vast: That's west Texas ' Bob Damron i old saying goes, "The sun is riz, the sun set, and we ain't out of Texas yet." lis is especially true of west Texas, riich stretches from the panhandle in the >rth, to the storied Rio Grande in the tilth. To hear Texans tell it, this is one of merica's last frontiers and "bigger than fe." Besides Amarillo, El Paso, Lubbock and Jdessa, many tourists visit Big Bend and -uadalupe Mountains National Parks. El Paso is the largest and most i n ______ t- ng city in west Texas. It UBed to be one of :he "rip-roaringest" towns in the Old West ... and had it's share of Cowboys, gamblers, gunfighters, prostitutes, Catholic padres, Spanish conquistadors and marauding Apaches. The first Euro- full time, hut she nmstibifa ■ m^i l Paso skyline (left) and "The Frontier Famil; _J. __„_. in two weeks. During that time, she called the 99s (the original women's flying organization) in Oklahoma City to see if they had any information on Louise Thaden, who was one of the foremost flyers of her day. They told her they would look in their archives. They looked and told her, "You're in luck. We haven't gone through the Thaden stuff, but there's boxes of it." "When I got there," said Shelley, "it was as if Louise Thaden knew I was coming. Everything on the Powderpuff Derby was clipped out." One of the strangest things was that Shelley had already written a scene in which one of the characters has a newspaper and says, "Look, here's a map of the U. S. with the race route, and a picture of Louise." In Louise Thaden's memorabilia, there was a paper that had been published during that portion*of the race, and it had the map and the picture of Louise. Several women in the cast look remarkably like the women that they play. Vicki Bell could very well make a career out of playing Amelia Earhart, and there is a great deal of similarity between Claire Hart-Palumbo and Ruth Nichols. When Ellen Swenson was cast as Gladys O'Donnell, no picture was available. But Shelley finally came up with one and the resemblance was so striking that "there was a moment of silence," according to Shelley. The cast has gotten invloved in research for their roles, even to the point of going up for flying lessons in a small propeller plane. Nanette Raiger who plays Blanche Noyes was on the controls for the first time, trying to keep a eye on everything. when Nancy Lee Rogers (Louise Thaden) enthusiastically asked her, "Do you want to run lines?" Needless to say, although the suggestion had a certain charm, Nanette declined. As far as the personal reading, each actress has become somewhat of an authority on her character. Vicki Bell expalined that Amelia Ear- hart was not brought up with stereotypical parental expectations, so she never considered that just because she was a woman that she was unable to do anything that was within her capabilities. "Women's lib was not a fight to her," said Vicki, "It was a natural thing." Nancy Lee Rogers took a picture of I_ouise Thaden home with her and kept looking at it, trying to get a feeling about how Louise felt about things. Because of her research and her closeness to the project, Nancy said, "I know I can't meet her, but I kinda feel like I have." Claire Hart-Palucnbo developed a real admiration for Ruth Nichols. "She was a survivor. She just kept on." Nichols had several crashes that almost killed her, but she never gave up. After one of her crashes "she was flying in a body cast, setting a new record." Perhaps the care and love that has prevaded the process of this very wonderful play in process is what gives it its life and honesty. Daughters of Heaven is playing during the Texas Playwrights Festival at Stages. Call the theatre for dates and times.
