The Loyola Maroon Vol. XXXI, X-259 Loyola University, New Orleans, La., February 12, 1954 NO. 16 Dr. Miguel Bernal Named Music Dean Prominent Composer Replaces Fr, Bassich DR. MIGUEL BERNAL Dublin Players Appear On Forum; Present Plays Tonight, Saturday The Dublin Players' production of "Pygmalion," the fourth Loyola Forum presentation, will be offered tonight at 8:30 p.m. in Mc- Main Auditorium. Tomorrow night the players will stage "Shadow and Substance" at McMain, according to the Rev. John A. Toomey, S.J., Forum director. Internationally renowned for their dramatic productions, the group is headed by Ronald Ibbs, formerly of the Old Vic company in London and a leading man at Lord Longford's Gate Theater in Dublin, Ireland for the past seven years. Ibbs plays the lead in "Shadow and Substance" and is particularly noted for his production of "Hamlet" done in modern dress in Dublin recently. The Dublin Players, founded in Ireland in 1947, are composed of outstanding talent from Ireland's Abbey and Gate theaters and the Old Vic in London. According to Father Toomey, they have received nation-wide acclaim here and have packed houses from New York to Los Angeles. Shaw's classic "Pygmalion," the first production, is one of the top dramas by the master of wit. It tells of the transformation of a lowly English Cockney girl into a lady of high society. In the play's development Shaw points up the ridiculous norms for "society debs." The second night's play, "Shadow and Substance" is a study in contrast between the simple faith of a peasant girl and the more abstruse religious ideals of the clergy. Students may use their student cards for both productions, Father Toomey said. Regular tickets are available at the book store for $1.50 each. Ibbs, founder and director of the Dublin Players was born in England and together with his wife, Maureen Halligan, form a team of such dramatic fame as the Lunts in this country. He plays the role of the Very Rev. Thomas Canon Skerritt, the (See FORUM, page 6) LOOKING OVER A DIAGRAM of the set for the Dublin Players production are RONALD IBBS, founder and director of the group, and his wife, MAUREEN HALLIGAN.

"It's grown from a little penny project in Holy Name Auditorium to a dignified, civic function in Municipal Auditorium," he pointed out. Dr. John G. Arnold, moderator, said that the project for the fieldhouse funds lasted 24 months and covered two Talent Night shows. Other speakers included Ed Uzee, former PK vicepresident and Dan Stapp, Talent Night treasurer. Guests included both active and alumni members of the honor fraternity.
