Citadel theatre work under way EDMONTON (CP) Construction got under way today on a new home for the Citadel theatre a million brick and glass structure which will rise over an ex- isting parking lot in a down- town part of the city. The Citadel now in its 10th year of operation has operated out of a converted Salvation Army Hall with of- fices and rehearsal rooms in two other buildings. With completion of the new theatre, expected in April, 1976, all enterprises, including administration offices, Citadel on wheels, and rehear- sal halls, will for the first EW-ESKJasUWStaSSaiBatlBBH!

Citadel manager, Olive Finland, at sod turning ceremonies, described the new building as the best stan- dard theatre facility in North America. It will house a 675 seat main theatre, a studio theatre seating 250 and a 230 seat cinema or lecture theatre. Up to half the cost is ex- pected to come from a public campaign planned for early in the New Year, Mrs. Finland said. Commitments so far include million from the federal government, while the city has donated square foot piece of land. Citadel spokesmen express- ed pleasure at the growth of the theatre to date, with 95 per cent of the present 279 seat house sold out ahead of time for the last four seasons The new facility, they said, "will allow the theatre to grow ar- tistically and move into new dimensions."

He served two terms Song team returns to Broadway NEW YORK (AP) Har- vey Schmidt and Tom Jones are ready to report in after ex- tended voluntary exile from Broadway. "We'll know soon whether we want to keep says Jones of their experimental hegira, "or go back to more commercial theatre ac- tivity." Schmidt and Jones are the composer and lyricist of that mini-epic The Fantasticks which has been running off- Broadway 14 years and has grossed million from productions around the world. Then, moving up to the Mam Stem, the pair provided scores for 110 in the Shade and I Do, I which es- tablished them as the hottest musical collaborators since Rodgers and Hammerstein. The hit skeifr snarled with Celebration, a reversal since soothed by sustained popu- larity in stock and college per- formances. Affluence enabled them five years ago to get off the show- biz merry-go-round and set up a workshop to test new forms of musical expression. "Since we teamed up 20 years ago at the University of Texas this was always the said Jones, who does most of the team's talking. TRY NEW CONCEPTS "The Broadway musical is the greatest form of theatre in our time. But it doesn't al- ways have to be what it has been. Such a great form con- tains many possibilities that cannot be tested under usual commercial tensions." A battered old six-storey brownstone house in a seedy section of Manhattan once known as Hell's Kitchen was found in which to pursue as- sorted dreams Over the door, scrawled heavy with graffitti by ram- bunctious pupils from the high school next door, hangs a board with the word "Por- a name adopted from an early show the pair wrote. Schmidt and Jones have subsidized the studio them- selves, but beyond monthly rent profess not to know what the venture has cost and aren't sure whether the place is incorporated. "We have a business man- is the way Jones dis- misses such matters. Dropping out of the hurly- burly in mid-career under such circumstances might seem self-indulgence, but that is strenuously denied. The pair periodically invite a hundred or so people in to see a work in progress and, asserted Jones, "they let you know loud and clear if any- thing verges on the pre- tentious." As the next step in revela- tion, the team is throwing the doors open for month-long presentations of four main projects so that the public and critics can judge. On a modified Elizabethan stage trimmed with masks, props and costumes designed by successful commercial artist before The be shown a new version of Portfolio, then Philemon, a revised Celebra- tion and The Bone Room. The partners hesitantly dis- cuss basic creative goals in somewhat mystical terms "We don't want to sound pre- said Jones. The Fantasticks and Cele- bration, as far as the authors are concerned, related to the cycle of the seasons that loomed so large in primitive society. Some of the new work delves more deeply into man's psychic underground. "We have frequent offers while here to do shows for Schmidt said "It's easy for people to think we're just into some kind of closet drama, just doing easy things to gratify ourselves But what we are doing is harder than doing a show for David Mernck." The most traumatic ex- perience Jones ever had was the unfriendly reception for most origi- nal thing we'd ever done up to that point." To his partner, however, "The most traumatic thing is trying to create initially something you, like yourself. The rest you can endure somehow."
