A new Course
Center stage - a new and
exciting course directed by Dr.
The course is American
Studies 4988 alias American
Popular Theater. Dr. Patterson
promises a lot of work, but also
a very exciting and interesting
study focusing on a production
of a single 19th century play.
It’s conceived as, “An
experimental effort in American
Studies and not primarily as a
course in theater history or
The class will meet during
two double class periods per
week. It will consist of lectures,
rehearsals, and seminars. The
play chosen by Dr. Patterson is
entitled, “The Spy of Atlanta, a
Grand Military Allegory in Six
Acts.” It was written by A. D.
Ames and C. G. Bartley in 1875.
The class will also concern itself
with the evolution of American
attitudes during the 19th and
Dr. Patterson hopes he can
find students as enthusiastic as
he is to approach the study of
the American personality with a
slightly different approach.

Highlights from Saint Joan
“Saint Joan,” one of the
world’s most inspiring dramas of
a woman’s faith and the price
she was willing to pay for her
beliefs, will be presented by the
Alpha-Omega Players on
Tuesday, October 2 at 2 p.m. on
the lawn in the rear of the main
building, (in the event of rain it
will take place in the
Auditorium). No Charge!
Written by George Bernard
Shaw, “Saint Joan” tells the
stirring story of a peasant girl
who was led to great heights by
God’s commands and ultimately
was led to the stake by those she
Shaw said of her, “There are
only two opinions about her:
One that she was miraculous and
the other that she was
unbearable. She asserted herself
with such force that she was

The Alpha-Omega Players,
the nation’s most active
repertory theater headquartered
in Dallas, Texas, which has
achieved international fame for
its dramatic presentations, will
offer a special adaptation of the

In addition to her inspiring
personal portrayal, Joan will be
seen in moving moments with
Captain Dunois of the French
forces, the sympathetic but
militant churchman Ladvenue,
the whimpering Dauphin, and
the Archbishop of Rheims.
This fast-moving presentation
of the effectively staged
highlights of “Saint Joan” is the
work of Drexel H. Riley,
executive producer of the
Alpha-Omega Players, who also
serves as the director.
