'Life' is a success

Fullerton College Hornet  - Debbie Smith - Friday, May 25th, 1979
TENNIS ANYONE?-Fullerton College theater students rehearse the tennis scene from the production of A.R. Gurney's "Scenes from American Life." The play will be presented in the Studio Theatre May 17 through 19 and May 21 through 26.

How would you like to spend an evening watching typical scenes from American life from the '30s to the present and even reaching into the future?

If it sounds interesting, join the cast of eight actors and actresses in the Studio Theatre as they perform "Scenes from American Life," a play by A.R. Gurney, Jr. The acting was superb throughout the evening by all members of the cast (four men and four women). Each had to portry several different characters; there was no set story, just many different scenes from American life.

The costumes used in the show were terrific, and enhanced the feelings of nostalgia. However, it was difficult sometimes to distinguish the time period of the scene. Even when the dialogue would reveal events happening in the future, the apparel and hair design was confusing; still rather conservative and hinting, perhaps, at older days.

All in all, the show was successful and George Archambeault deserves much credit as the show's production director. This, incidentally, is Archambeault's last play to direct here at FC as he is retiring after 35 years this semester.

The show will be continued tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. Don't miss it.
