"Calamity Jane" is the play to be produced. It is a light musical based partly on fact. The play tells of the famed Calamity Jane who dressed, rode and handled a gun like a man, but given the proper chance could become a beautiful girl hankering for the love of a man. The man in this case happens to be Wild Bill Hickock.>Mr. George L. Stoughton has announced that tryouts will be held on June 19 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Campus Theatre, (although auditions may be held earlier if requested).

Actors, singers, and dancers are needed. There are four major male roles, as well as four female parts.These roles require both the ability to sing and act.

The play will be co-directed by Mr. George Stoughton and Mr. Dick Thompson, technical director will be Todd Glen.

The play was made into a movie during the 50's and won an academy award for the song "Secret Love."
