The stage actor writes to Theatre World founder Daniel Blum, adding updates to his resume
Typed letter signed: "Jim" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. New York City, New York, June 18, 1955. In full: "Dear Mr. Blum, Again my sincere thanks for your call this morning and for the honor of being considered for the biography section of Theatre World. I am very grateful. I am sending to you these two pictures if they can help you in any way. Prior to coming to New York I taught Dramatics and Speech at the Hill School, Pottstown, Pennsylvania-directed in Community Theatre projects in Pennsylvania and Maryland and acted with eight professional summer theatre companies including the Antioch Shakespeare Festival, Yellow Springs, Ohio. I made my New York debut in a bit role in John Houseman's production of 'Coriolanus' at the Phoenix Theatre and have since been seen in 'The Cretan Woman' at the Provincetown Playhouse and more recently in the much lauded production of 'The White Devil' at the Phoenix. I am hoping for a very special booking Texas for a couple of weeks this summer- otherwise my plans are slim. My thanks again and best wishes. Do call on me if I can be of further information. Sincerely,". Jim Oyster (1930-1998) debuted on Broadway in 1957 in the original comedy Measure for Measure. Later he performed in Hostile Witness (1966), The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1968) and Who's Who in Hell (1974). His last performance, Holiday (1995-1996), premiered in December of 1995 at Circle in the Square Theatre. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. Normal mailing folds. Corners creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
