Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuniduy, 1, 1970 City's Culture Drawing Card For U.S. Actor By JOAN BOWMAN _ Heralil Entertainment Writer Canadian actors are noted for their disappearing acts into the fields of American enter- tainment. One American who has de- cided to head north instead of "west, young is Lee Drew currently directing daily rehearsals for the Lethbridge Muscial Theatre's production of Your Own Thing. The multi-media rock show, based on Shakespeare's Twelth Night, runs Aug. 21. 22, 28 and 29 at the Yates Mem- orial Centre. It will be the sec- ond LMT sponsored summer student show, following last year's Little Mary Sunshine. Mr. Drew, 24. had a chance to enter a Hollywood actors' studio, but. gave it up "because it's such a hassle down there." A graduate this year of an. Ohio state university at Bowl- ing Green, with a bachelor of science degree in education, he earlier took "two years out in Hollywood" and liked the com- petition on for acting jobs but not the atmosphere. "It's like working in a fac- tory down there." Mr. Drew's first views of Lethbridge were gained during his three-year position as the- atre director and assistant manager at East Glacier Lodge in Montana. For 3Vz months during the summer, he directed the hotel employees in melodramas, Fio- rello and The Three-Penny Opera. "I used to come up here every day I had off because I lilted the cultural aspects of the city. "Attendance at plays seems to be high without too much publicity. H's much tetter than in Ohio or even in Las Vegas (the city, not the Kim Drew, Lee's wife, ap- pearing ss Viola in Your Own Thing, has also taken to Leth- bridge. A former- theatre arts student in Dayton, Ohio, she'd like to return to university this September for English or per- haps art courses. Both Mr. and Mrs. Drew are working with the city's cultural development department on the summer playground program, and both are scrambling to find a job past the program's Aug. 15 ending date. Currently in Canada on work permits, they are seeking land- ed immigrant status and to ac- quire this, they need permanent jobs. Finding employment in Leth- bridge will the opener to some farflung plans by Mr. Drew. He has his eye on establishing a theatre school in Canada and along the way attracting a friend, Tom Pender- gast, from the U.S. Mr. Pendergast would use Lethbridge facilities to pre- miere his plays, and according to Mr. Drew, bad modern plays "have been the downfall of to- day's theatre. "There hasn't been a good playwright in the last 10 years." Free Parking Reported Satisfactory A spokesman for the Leth- bridge Downtown Business- men's Association says the large majority of businessmen are quite satisfied with the way their free Saturday parking scheme is working. D. C. Lien, head of the pub- lic relations firm that handles publicity for the association, says the only real problem that has been encountered is that some people are still put- ting money in the one-hour meters. Two-hour and 12-min- ute meters are not included in the plan. He said a few people have parked over the two-hour limit and have had their cars tag- ged, but this has not been a big problem. One advantage, he said, was that store employees were no longer parking on the streets, leaving more room for custo- mers. Just where they were parking he wasn't sure. Expansion BROOKS Construction on the half-million dollar expan- sion program a t Newell Ve- getables Ltd. Is going ahead as scheduled. The program involves a ton carrot storage addition which doubles the current capa- city, and an onion drying and storage building for tons of onions.

Right now crews are working on a similar project oti 28th St. S., south of Highway 3.

NEW LANDFlLL-The city's new sanitary landfill operation is now functioning smoothly, according to a. spokesman for the engineering department. The site, at Sfafford Drive and 20th Ave. N., opened in June and crews will be filling in the east end of the coulee for about a year. The 100-foot deep coulee will be filled to a depth of about- 50 feet before operations b.egin further west. Working according to provincial regulations, crews cover each day's garbage at the end of the working day.
