 WESTERN WASHINGTON COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
SPRING QUARTER ARTIST SERIES
Presents
THE UNIVERSITY OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA PLAYERS
In a Modern Spanish Comedy
by
THE QUINTERO BROTHERS
"A HUNDRED YEARS OLD"
COLLEGE AUDITORIUM
Tuesday Evening, May 8, 1956, at 8:15 "One Hundred Years Old"
<?r
The play is a colorful one, written with
charm, wit, and deep human insight. Papa
Juan, a patriach in a small Spanish village,
has invited his entire family of descendants
and distant relatives to come to his birthday celebrations. He is approaching his
hundredth birthday. As they begin to arrive and the great day draws near, Papa
Juan's excitement mounts. Difficulties,
such as family quarrels and the love his
great great granddaughter has for Trino,
intervene and it takes Papa Juan's wit and
youthful vigor to settle this before the
celebrations begin. The play reflects the
gaiety and romanticism of Spain. This national character is emphasized by the use
of colorful Spanish costumes, setting and
music. CAST {In order of appearance)

The club was founded on November 2,
1915, by Professor Frederic Wood and in
1920 embarked upon its first tour presenting ten shows. Since that date, the spring
tour to as many as twenty-nine interior
towns has been an annual event with the
exception of 1934, three war years, and
1949. The U. B. C. Players' Club is the oldest dramatic organization of sustained activity in Canada. The annual tour is also
a unique event in Canadian Theatre. The
club was founded to encourage the presentation of good theatre by students at the
University and to give students a valuable
opportunity to learn, under experienced
direction, all aspects of the theatre: stage
design and construction, make-up, lighting, costumes, and direction.
