Rehearsals for "So Proudly We Hall," the Hasty Pudding Club's 92nd annual production, quickened their pace yesterday with the arrival of William Holbrook, chorus director, from New York.
"So Proudly We Hail" is a satire on Cafe Society with international implications involving Mussolini, Hitler, and Roosevelt and their respective countries, and the small nation of Cafeteria, bounded by Central Park East and 42nd street. Cafeteria is a pawn in the power politics of the three dictators, and these complications form the plot.
The directors are finding some difficulty in casting the part of Princess Elizabeth.
Among those trying out for principal parts are Joseph R. Coolidge, Jr. '39, Benjamin F. Dillingham '39, Frank D. Lawrence '39, William W. Myrick '39, Peter H. Nicholas '39, Thomas R. Macy '40, and Augustus W. Soule '40.
Twelve of the sixteen chorus men are Sophomores.
