Title

Program "Hiawatha"

Description

This is a program for the 1984 University Players' production of Hiawatha, directed by Jack Welsh. The play is inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "The Song of Hiawatha," adapted by Michael Bognadov and with music by Jeff Teare. As well as including a listing of the cast and production staff, the program includes an insert describing the life of Hiawatha, described as "an Indian who lived some five-hundred years ago", and defines some terms used in the play, from an unidentified Native American language. The play featured a cast of fourteen people, including two swings; bios of these cast members are not included, and it is unknown if any of these actors portraying Native Americans are Native themselves.
