More than 1,500 high school students will take part in Shakespearian acts this Saturday in a series of round-robin eliminations. The winning group will perform Saturday afternoon for all interested spectators. USC's drama department will present “The Taming of the Shrew,” opening tomorrow night at 8:30 in Bovard Auditorium, in connection with the festival. Great Comedy The play, one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies, was written by the theatrical genius at the age of 28. Shakespeare himself, however, referred to this play as “the work of a beginner.” The audiences which have viewed the play for the past 372 years have, however,-found it much to their approval. “This particular comedy is filled with terrific characterization because each individual I character has some unique! feature which sets Wm apart I Five pages of ASSC consti- Article III.

The production also noted that one Shakespeare’s most memorable lines, “He who is giddy, thinks the world goes round,” originated in this play.
