12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE TIIURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1978 Opera House Production of 'Goodbye Charlie' Moving Toward March 30 Opening STEVE HOOPER How would you feel if, only minutes you finished delivering your best friends memorial service, he suddenly walked into the room? Not only that, but he is a she; a beautiful girl clothed only in an oversized raincoat. ,This is Steve Hooper's dilemma as he plays "George Tracy" in the Old Opera House's next production "Goodbyr Charlie".' This is only the beginning of George's problems. Being Charlie's best friend in his first life, George is naturally Charlie's choice as friend and confidante in his second life. George also falls heir to the awsome task of containing Charlie's roguish, bachelor ways like smoking big cigars, belting gin, and ripping-off broads. Steve will draw from ten years of professional and amateur stage experience from this in- terpretation of the character George Tracy. Steve's stage experience began at Charles Town High School and in a group of Charles Town area thespians that Steve helped band together called the Attic Players. For two summers, Steve served as an apprentice at Wayside Theatre. While there he appeared in three produc- tions, a rarity for apprentices. Steve also studied drama at WVU At the University he appeared in their productions of "Oklahoma", "Conduct Un- becoming", "The Man Who Came To Dinner", and played the Mad Hatter in "Alice in Wonderland". He also produced and directed three productions at WVU. On his way to Hollywood, Steve stopped long enough in Arizona to play a bad guy in a western, "Time River". In Hollywood, he studied at Warner Brothers Actors' Studio. He made two commercials for Texaco. Steve appeared as "Groucho" for Tramp En- terprises, a group of im- pressionists and appeared as the Wizard in a touring production of "The Wizard of Oz". Since returning from California in 1974, Steve has appeared in Our Town at Shepherd College, The American Dame, 27 Wagons Full of Cotton, and You Can't Take It With You, at the Old Opera House. Tickets for Goodbye Charlie, which will be presented March 30 through April 2, are $3.50 and $2.50 and may be obtained at the Opera House from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
