North George St.- Ranson, W.Va. Opera House CAROLYN STEWART "Butterflies Are Free", the smash Broadway hit to open at the Old Opera House on Friday, July 7 and continue through July 8, and July 14 and 15, is the story of a blind man and his struggle for independence. It sounds like a sober theme but actually the man's wit and humor is what helps him through life. Based on a true life story of a man who, in 1967, was requested to report to his draft board and was unable to con- vince them that he was truly blind and was rated a 1-A by the Board, became quite a news story himself and won the at- tention of our author, Leonard Gershe. This light-hearted comedy begins at 8 p.m. at the Opera House and tickets are $4 and $3 with children being admitted for half price. The similarity between the true-to-life character and our character in the play is that they both want to avoid pity and insist on being treated like normal human beings. Struggling to be a folk singer in the Village in New York, while trying to learn his way around New York on his own, the man meets up with a cute stranger from the apart- ment next door. The neighbor, who is a bubbling young free thinker, as well as a free giver of herself, wants to avoid any deep involvements since the recent bust-up of her six:day marriage. The couple find themselves in a natural and easy affair only to be complicated by the man's over-protective mother, who indicates with hilarious sar- casm, that she does not share that opinion. The play deals with the working out of this conflict with wit and humor and an avoidance of over- sentimentality. The role of the blind man is being portrayed by Paul james. The carefree neighbor will be played by Carolyn Stewart and Rose Marie Coy plays the meddling mother A fourth character, a young rebel of the off-Broadway theatre who has his eye on the girl, will be played by Will Moore. Tickets for this exciting Broadway comedy may be obtained at the office of the Old Opera House, 204 North George StreeL between the hours of 10:30 and 6:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. i Linda J.
