CURTAINS UP-Kathie Miller and Trina Portillo make last minute preparations for tonight's opening dramatic production, "All My Sons."

Tonight's the night! What with jittery nerves, grease paint and last-minute cue calls, the Fullerton Junior College's first dramatic production will weather its proverbial "opening night." Curtain time will be 8 p.m. in the Little Theatre.

George Archambeault and his troups of actors have been holding rehearsals and literally "sweating it out" for the past few weeks in hopes of turning out a production that will do justice to Arthur Miller's work, "All My Sons."

Dress Rehearsals Held

Dress rehearsals were held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights in the Fullerton Union High School's Little Theatre in preparation for last night's performance which attracted high school amateur actors and actresses from all over the Northern Orange County area. This performance was held especially for >the interested drama students from the local area but tonight is the official first night.

Play to Run Several Days

The play, which will run tonight and tomorrow night ,as well as Nov. 7 and 8, will follow the theme of the individual's responsibility to his fellow man.

Originally produced on Broadway, Jan. 29, 1947, the play won the Drama Critics Award for the best play of the season and has remained one of America's greatest plays.

Archambeault, who has directed such productions as "Inherit The Wind", "The Crucible", "The Dream Princess" as well as many one-acts is expected to present tonight's play with the style that has become a tradition at Fullerton Junior College-"brilliant performance."

Present Children's Plays

This year the drama department will present two Children's Theatre Productions. The first of these will be a Christmas story written by Richard W. Thompson called "Tommy's Magic Tree" and will be shown through the holidays.
