THE GREAT AMERICAN MAIL ORDER CATALOGUE is a show celebrating that revered American institution, the Sears Roebuck Catalogue, and its comforting, stimulating presence throughout the development of the West. Nostalgic, informative, tuneful and often very funny, it offers a stirring compilation of true Americana. The show is directed by Walter Stump, Chair of the Theatre Department of the University of Southern Maine and recently recipient of the Kennedy Center Medallion for his contribution to collegiate drama.

This show marks the completion of the first decade of theatre interchange between USM and King Alfred's College in Winchester, England, initiated by Walter Stump and his English colleague, Robert Silvester, sometime Head of the Drama Department in Winchester. It will be playing at King Alfred's and other English theatres during the latter part of May.
