Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta No accident theatre in Alberta in good shape By GLENNIS ZILM EDMONTON (CP) - It's no accident that theatre in Edmonton is in good shape, says Gordon Peacoclc, head of the University of Alberta's drama department. "Th^tre in this area has strong roots and has been building steadily for a number of years," he said in an interview. "The Banff School of Fine Arts started as a theatre school in 1932-during the De- DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS A. HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic National Store BIdg. Ph. 327-7244 Lethbrldg* pression. Then, in 1935, Alberta put drama on the school currioulum, so that classes could be taught in schools. "It was the first province to do so." In 1948, the drama department at the imiversity opened. It was the first of its kind in Canada and is still only one of three in Canada that gives a degree in fine arts in drama. "Things like that are probably the reasons that Alberta has such a flourishing theatre today," he said. COMPANIES DO WELL Alberta has two professional theatre companies-Theatre Calgary and The Citadel in Edmonton-Jthat are doing well. "That's a very good sign.

Gel more out of life - Take the family to a movie It's unusual to have two professional theatres in a province with .such a relatively small population." Another proiessional theatre group is just starting. Theatre 3 is running three productions this winter. Edmonton also has an amateur theatre group, Walter-dale, which puts on about five productions a year and which plays to almost lOO-per-cent-capacity audiences'. And the university has an amateui* students' group as well as the drama department's two thea-ti-es. Studio Theatre and Torches Theatre. Studio Tlieatre opened in 1949, Mr. Peacock said. "At that time, it was the only theatre in Edmonton offering a season of plays." It actually was started more to provide plays for audience experiences than to offer teaching experiences, he said. TIED TO PROGRAM "But the university felt it had a responsibilitj' to provide some sort of live theatre for Edmonton as well as for the cai-ipus. And of 'course, it wanted a theatre of as high a standard as possible." SlTidio Theatre's f-eason and productions now are tied closely to the drama department program. Members of the faculty credit Mr. Peacock with many of the innovations. There are four productions a year m Studio's own 275-seat theatre. "It's impossible to extend the srason or increase the number of performances because the theatre actually is in ".se every day, either for rel-iauals, stage design or shows," Mr. Peacock said. A unique ticket arrangement ensures lOO-per-cent attendance yet leaves the de-partment free to choose productions that meet teaching needs. Two tickets for $5 for the season are offered to sulccribers, which takes care of ",000 of the seats for the 10-day run. The remainder of the seats, 500 to 800 for leach show, are offei-ed free to university students on a tirst-come, first-�2rved basis. WAIT TO GET ON "Thea-e's a waiting list of about 100 to get on the subscriber membership list," he said.

All production costs are borne by the department as a teaching expense." r/ery student in the professional course-"65 in the undergraduate p'Ogram and 12 in the gi'aduate program" - mi'jst take part in three of the fou;: productions, either acting or satgecraft. But the productions are not amateur. Professionals are used in many roles because Mr. Peacock believes students' gain a great deal of experience just from woriiing along with the professionals in an apprenticeship way. WANTS TO TEACH Ml-. Peacock, 42, is "retiring" as head of the department at the end of this university year. He recently asked to be relieved of the administrative duties and go back on staff to "just teach." "I have two loves-teadhing acting and directing," he said.

Detective Edward E1 v i d g e told the coroner that she had taken the drug just before lighting a fire in the fireplace in her home.

She died four days after the fire and a verdict of accidental death was recorded.
