Inscription and Marks

Typed in black ink and attched to photograph: 'Central City Opera Hosue Association, 636 university Bldg., Denver, Colorado, Don Whiteley, 623-0818 - Don Ameche and Betsy von Furstenberg's brief, hilarious, doomed sometimes touching two-week affair is the comedy ingrediant in Terence Frisby's 'There's a Girl in My Soup' now playing through August 31 at the Central City Opera House. Furstenberg springs the trap on bachelor Ameche when, blundering into a wrong midnight party, he picks up a 19-year-old siren - or maybe it's vice versa - and brings her to his smartly furnished home for what he thinks will be another gay romance. In addition to Ameche and Miss Furstenberg as the middle-aged Romeo and the 19-year-old swinger, the cast includes Elliot Reid as the cookery-expert's observant friend and publisher, and Taina Elg as the girl not in his soup. Tickets for the three-act comedy are available by mail from the Central City Play Festival, 636 University Bldg., Denver, 80202 or in Central City at the Assay Office.'
